Total Ad Ratings


Verify digital ads across linear TV and digital platforms

With audiences engaging with advertising across more devices and platforms than ever before, it has become increasingly difficult for media buyers and sellers to accurately measure their viewership. In fact, accurate, cross-platform measurement is one of the greatest challenges facing more than 50% of all media buyers today.*

So, how can advertisers be sure that their ads are reaching their intended audiences without an accurate way of measuring cross-platform campaign performance? We’re here to help.
