New Zealand-based digital out-of-home provider LUMO Digital Outdoor has partnered with global outdoor analytics platform Quividi to roll out the latest in audience measurement for New Zealand’s DOOH sector.
The partnership will use roadside-based cameras to apply real time audience dwell time, allowing advertisers on LUMO’s network to benefit from the next progression of DOOH impression measurement.
The new partnerships comes as LUMO has been seeking a reliable source of real-time dwell data to complement their LENS datasets and complete the ‘impressions multiplier formula’ – the universal formula adopted for NZ based DOOH suppliers activating their screens through ad servers or via Supply Side Platforms programmatically.
The formula, introduced in 2021 by IAB New Zealand’s Programmatic DOOH Steering Committee, provides the methodology for how the market applies hourly audience and dwell time data sets to determine the appropriate amount of impressions delivered for DOOH ad plays for every hour of every day.
The LUMO and Quividi partnership uses camera fitted with measurement software that is installed on each of LUMO’s screens. The cameras face oncoming road traffic and the software recognises vehicle movements. Quividi then measures the number of seconds each vehicle is present in the camera view and streams the data 24/7 from each site back to LENS.
Jack Plowright, LUMO GM programmatic said the partnership allows for greater transparency for DOOH advertisers.
“LUMO has been working on this solution following a number of conversations with buyers who are being provided static OOH measurement estimates which are inaccurate, outdated and inappropriate for DOOH campaigns.
“This partnership debunks the way we’ve always measured DOOH campaigns and sets the benchmark for true transparency and results-based outcomes. We believe this is the future of reporting accountability for our industry and LUMO is pleased to be a driving force behind this model,” said Plowright.
Quividi’s CEO Oliver Duizabo said : “With its high-fidelity data, Quividi enables media owners to sit at the forefront of Digital Out-of-Home audience measurement & monetisation.”
Denis Gaumondie, Quividi CMO added: “We are glad to have been selected by LUMO to take transparency and measurement for programmatic DOOH in New Zealand to the next level.”
LUMO’s new partnership will be complimented by a number of other solutions globally that will combine both the existing real time hourly roadside audience reach and frequency with real-time dwell or presence via LUMO’s LENS platform.
The near-live ‘impressions multiplier outputs’ are pushed daily to LUMO’s ad server partners, Hivestack, the world’s largest, independent, programmatic digital out of home (DOOH) ad tech company and Vistar Media.
Romulus Stoian, global director of publisher solutions at Hivestack commented: “LUMO has consistently demonstrated a willingness to step outside the box and adopt a holistic approach when selling DOOH in order to increase revenue and maximize yield through impression based and audience-based campaigns. LUMO creates innovative solutions by using a data driven approach that involves behavioural targeting as well as post campaign measurement to drive attribution. Together we are looking forward to driving more value for buyers by building better DOOH campaigns.”
