Zenovia announced today its acquisition of Brandscreen, the first and leading demand side platform (DSP) in the Asia-Pacific region. Brandscreen enables brands and leading agencies to buy display and mobile advertising using real-time bidding (RTB) across numerous exchanges.
The acquisition will give buyers direct access to Zenovia’s first-to-market guaranteed in-view global marketplace and anti-fraud filtering, scheduled for launch mid-April of 2014.
Brandscreen and Zenovia technologies will be integrated to leverage Zenovia’s recently upgraded infrastructure. The combination will provide even faster transactions, lower discrepancy rates, and better impression-level intelligence for buyers.
“We are pleased to bring Brandscreen’s team and technology into our portfolio. Their platform is the ideal utility to deliver our in-view marketplace to buyers of any size,” said Dwight Ringdahl, Founder and CTO of Zenovia Exchange. “This acquisition will enable Zenovia’s to deliver a first-of-its-kind marketplace offering guaranteed viewable impressions at unprecedented scale.”
“This is a complementary transaction for both companies,” said Jo Gaines, CRO of Brandscreen. “Zenovia gains one of ad tech’s most accomplished teams and a proven, innovative platform,” Gaines adds: “Brandscreen’s clients will continue to experience the same great customer service and will further benefit by additional access to global supply and the new ability to programmatically buy high-performing viewable media at scale.”
