“BrightLine has seen surging demand from advertisers, and media owners alike, to break the bounds of traditional TV commercials with personalization, dynamic creative, and interactivity that makes the ad experience better for viewers, more effective for advertisers, and more profitable for suppliers,” said Robert Aksman, BrightLine’s Chief Strategy Officer. “With SpotX providing a single-stop solution for buying enhanced ads across many of our mutual media partners via a single conduit, we expect it to add further fuel to this fire, which benefits all,” Aksman continued.
BrightLine is the leading enhanced TV ad platform, integrated with every major TV network group, and leading OTT provider. Enhanced ads include addressable, dynamic store locator overlays, immersive engagement ads, and quick-click micro interactions for use in live viewing. With so much scale across so many supply partners, SpotX makes it easy to buy now by aggregating premium, BrightLine-enabled supply for buyers within its platform.
