Quantcast and FreeWheel have announced a new partnership that allows advertisers direct access to global premium video publishers.

As part of this new deal, marketers working with the global advertising technology company will have access to premium programmatic video supply across all personal screens and devices, including over-the-top (OTT) and connected television (CTV).

The collaboration comes as advertisers are increasingly seeking effective performance and audience deduplication across digital channels.
Through this partnership, marketers can use Quantcast’s AI and machine-learning capabilities to drive optimal outcomes by connecting with the right audiences across FreeWheel’s supply of premium video, extending inventory reach beyond native, display, mobile and online video.

Konrad Feldman, CEO, Quantcast, said: “CTV’s rapid expansion and growth is transforming both the digital and TV ad sectors and so, we have to move quickly and nimbly to anticipate shifting consumer behaviour.”

“Our company has been at the forefront of using AI to interpret media consumption patterns and deliver campaign performance and outcomes. By teaming up with FreeWheel, we can better support our advertisers to reach consumers across even more engagement and connection points.”

Sonal Patel, Quantcast managing director, APAC, said: “We’re thrilled to work with FreeWheel in a partnership that advances our service offering and helps our advertising clients achieve even better outcomes with video.”

Quantcast has deep experience leveraging large, live data sets to help marketers discover and reach more relevant consumers, create meaningful engagement, and deliver performance across the entire omnichannel journey.
With this new partnership, Quantcast is able to offer FreeWheel’s premium CTV inventory to all of its advertising clients, including Australia and APAC, enabling expanded reach and a more direct supply path to even more of the CTV content consumers love.

Jon Mansell, U.S. head of Marketplace Demand at FreeWheel, said: “We’re excited to be teaming up with Quantcast to help drive incremental demand for sellers across the streaming ecosystem.”

“This new partnership enables us to provide a new programmatic access point to FreeWheel’s ad server, a direct connection that helps marketers to further reduce waste and avoid unnecessary exchange redundancy, all while delivering a better experience to consumers.”

The partnership and its accompanying capabilities will be live in market, including Australia and APAC, from Q3 2023.
