Civolution offers live contextual World Cup ad placement

Civolution, the leading provider of technology and solutions for identifying, managing and monetizing content, today announced that its award winning SyncNow Automatic Content Recognition (ACR) and real-time Ads platform has been extended to offer TV synced contextual multi-screen advertising during live matches during the World Cup soccer starting June 12th. For the first time advertisers can programmatically place digital advertisements simultaneously when key events are happening on TV.

At the start or end of a game, during half time or when a team scores a goal, the SyncNow platform immediately sends a signal to programmatic bidding platforms to deliver targeted and contextually relevant ads on viewers’ smartphones laptops or tablets. These ads run instantly when the event happens on TV.

This new solution enables advertisers to ‘own’ crucial moments during World Cup soccer matches, and thereby engage in real time with their target audiences at scale across the most visited social media sites, mobile apps and websites. The live event triggers solution comes as an extension to Civolution’s SyncNow TV-synced Ads product which enables real-time multi-platform synced advertising. SyncNow TV-synced Ads is used today by many advertisers across North America and Europe to amplify the advertiser’s message, improve brand exposure, and ultimately increase ROI on advertising spend.

“At a time when advertising budgets are shifting from TV to digital, and real-time context is getting increasingly important to advertisers,” says Alex Terpstra, CEO, Civolution, “SyncNow Ads offers a solution enabling TV and digital to leverage each other’s natural strengths. At the same time, live event ad triggers offer a wealth of creative opportunity for advertisers to adjust their brand message to their targeted audience at the right moment in the right context.”
