AOL Inc. Collaborates with Nielsen Holdings N.V. to Measure the Audience Viewing AOL's Library
Apr 30 13
AOL Inc. announced a collaboration with Nielsen Holdings N.V. to measure the audience viewing AOL's library of over 620,000 premium videos. The custom AOL Video Reach (AVR), powered by Nielsen Online Campaign Ratings, will express audience measurement in the language of TV, enabling comparisons between the audience of AOL's high-quality original programming and curated premium partner content to TV viewership. AOL's Chairman and CEO Tim Armstrong and Nielsen's President of Strategic Initiatives John Burbank made this announcement on stage at AOL's Digital Content NewFront in New York City. Measuring audiences instead of just streams is a significant innovation. While the online industry has traditionally been able to measure the number of video streams, it has been difficult to accurately measure audiences at a meaningfully granular level. Meanwhile, brands are looking to reflect consumers' multiscreen, screen-agnostic approach to viewing programming and make online content an integral part of their video buys. AVR will be a custom solution powered by Nielsen Online Campaign Ratings that provides demographic breakouts with reach and frequency for each of AOL On's content channels. Nielsen Online Campaign Ratings will run on all ads served through AOL and be used to produce audience reach numbers. This will provide comprehensive and granular audience measurement online.
