Comscore Everywhere measurement standard launches
January 6, 2022
Cross-platform media evaluation specialist Comscore is introducing ‘Comscore Everywhere’, which it claims is a true single-source unified cross-platform measurement solution. Comscore Everywhere will provide a comprehensive, consistent, and deduplicated view of media consumption and audience intelligence—across media and screens—to capture the realities of the modern media consumption accurately.
The company suggests Comscore Everywhere represents a seamless blend of media platforms, with proper deduplication and contextualisation to inform the media transaction marketplace in a way that is stable, accurate, fair, reliable, and reflective of true consumer behaviour. Comscore Everywhere will also create a common comparable ‘Audience Definition’ across media and screens powered by a singular dataset and methodology.
“Consumers don’t think in terms of linear versus streaming versus digital—they think of content,” notes David Algranati, Chief Product Officer, Comscore. “Measurement must reflect that reality, and with today’s launch, Comscore is the only measurement company with the experience, scale, technology, combined with unique big data assets, innovative methodologies, and best-in-class services to deliver on the future of cross-platform media measurement.”
Building on the launch, Comscore will be working closely with its buy-side and sell-side partners to refine the methodology to holistically combine television, connected TV, digital and social media assets into one offering – enabling reach and frequency planning with advanced audience capabilities.
“As the fragmentation of consumer media consumption habits accelerates, the need for a holistic audience intelligence platform is more urgent than ever,” said Bill Livek, CEO and Executive Vice Chair, Comscore. “With the launch of Comscore Everywhere™, we have taken the lead on providing the currency of the future.”
Comscore Everywhere builds on the success of Comscore Campaign Ratings, which the company claims is the only solution in market today that is able to measure deduplicated reach and frequency across linear TV, CTV, and digital. Comscore also achieved a series of significant technological advancements in 2021:
- Launched Comscore TV, the streamlined national and local TV measurement suite that it says provides television buyers and sellers superior data flexibility with new features and customisable reports to meet their video measurement needs.
- First measurement provider to deliver deduplicated advertising campaigns on YouTube and YouTube TV across all devices including Connected TV
- Introduction of state-of-the-art personification methodology to capture person-level co-viewing
- Expansion of Comscore Consumer Intelligence to all 210 local markets to deliver unmatched monthly reporting of consumer retail visitation and online shopping tied to television and digital viewing behaviour at the local market level.
Comscore will be providing updates throughout 2022 as Comscore Everywhere evolves in partnership with its sell-side and buy-side partners.
