TVision & Mediahub Announce Strategic Partnership

Strategic Partnership Between TVision and Mediahub Empowers Mediahub Clients to Optimize TV Campaigns with Attention Data


The Partners’ Newly Released Upfront Planning Guide Provides an Industry Playbook for Getting Maximum Attention from TV Ad Investments


Today TVision, the company measuring every second of TV and CTV viewer engagement, and Mediahub Worldwide have announced a strategic partnership making it possible for Mediahub’s clients to leverage attention metrics in media planning for TV campaigns.

“At Mediahub, we are focused on investing in media that reaches humans most effectively. TVision’s attention metrics are a key identifier of more effective TV impressions across channels and properties," explains Michael Piner, EVP of Advanced Media at Mediahub. "Their data allows us to compare a growing maze of TV investment choices based on how effective they are at reaching real humans. This makes it a leading indicator of ad effectiveness across the purchase funnel as we are confident higher attention correlates to both brand and business outcome lifts.”

Putting Attention at the Forefront of Upfront Planning

The new Upfront Planning Guide from TVision and Mediahub explains the value that attention metrics bring to the media planning process and provides insights and best practices for advertisers to embrace in their Upfront strategies. Findings from the report include:

Viewability and Attention Vary Across Networks, Dayparts, and Programs - There is a 120% difference in viewer attention between high-performing networks and low-performing networks.

Attention Data Helps Buyers Identify Value Across Highly-Rated Programs - While traditionally Upfront plans are based on ratings, not all highly rated programs deliver the same level of audience engagement. In the study, we highlight differences between highly-rated, high-attention shows, like 9-1-1 on Fox, and other shows with similar ratings but lower viewer attention. This data can be helpful for media planners who are looking to maximize the impact of their Upfront campaigns.

Smart media planning can improve the value of low-performing ads - Case study examples in the report show that while engaging creative is best, choosing the right high attention environments can improve the impact of low-scoring creative, ensuring brands extend the value of their assets.

aCPM is a cross-media metric for overall campaign analysis - Attentive CPM (aCPM) combines the viewer’s average attentive seconds per thousand impressions with the cost per thousand seconds of the media. aCPM is gaining traction as a cross-platform metric that can help planners understand the impact of their campaigns across both TV and digital channels.

“When brands optimize their campaigns for attention, every incremental improvement translates to significant efficiency gains and greater value from their ad investments,” explains Yan Liu, CEO of TVision. “Mediahub’s commitment to delivering attention-informed media plans for their clients will have a significant and measurable impact on campaign goals.”
