"We are pleased to announce our exciting partnership with Videology. Not
only do they share our vision of establishing a premium video ad market
in Japan, they also have the technology to make it a reality," said Mr.
Osamu Aranami, Corporate Officer, Head of Marketing Solutions Company,
Yahoo! JAPAN. "Videology's platform is unique in that it offers brand
advertisers guaranteed-audience delivery, and therefore, more unified
planning and measurement across screens. This is in line with the
direction of our company, and we believe, with the direction of the
industry. Together, we will contribute to the future of the Internet
advertising industry, providing advertisers with increased value and
more attractive services."
"Given Yahoo! JAPAN's focus on attracting television-centric, brand
marketers to online video, Videology is the obvious technology
partner," said Brian Lesser, Global CEO, Xaxis, a digital media company
servicing over 1500 marketers in 26 markets across Asia Pacific, North
America, Europe and Latin America. "They understand brands and their
platform is built to plan and execute campaigns in a manner very
similar to and compatible with that of television."
Videology's technology offers campaign management tools for publishers
to manage audience-based reservations of direct sales inventory,
optimize against audience verification metrics, extend campaigns and
audiences to external inventory, and employ sophisticated audience
targeting. In recognition of the unique needs of premium publishers,
Videology's platform allows for strict controls over brand exposure,
pricing, buyer eligibility and ad creative, as well as advanced
predictive tools to help publishers maximize yield. These latter
capabilities are part of Videology's Revenue EngineSM product, which the company unveiled in September as part of an upgraded
release of its supply-side technology.
"Yahoo! JAPAN is truly changing the way that consumers are interacting
with media and allowing the audience to enjoy the very best of what
