NCM's Premium Video Cinema Inventory Now Available In Mediaocean's
Spectra Local Broadcast Systems in 97 DMAs
CENTENNIAL, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
National CineMedia (NCM), America's Movie Network, has partnered with
Mediaocean, the leading software provider for the advertising world, to
enable agencies to execute convergence buys with NCM's premium video
cinema advertising inventory and Spot TV.
NCM's integration into Mediaocean's Spectra Local Broadcast systems now
allows users to seamlessly purchase NCM cinema inventory throughout the
advertising cycle - including planning, buying, RFPs, and billing - by
full DMAs in 97 markets across the country.
NCM's exclusive pre-feature show, seen by more than 750 million
moviegoers annually according to Nielsen, is continually ranked among
the top-rated programs against the coveted Adults18-34 audience
demographic, as well as with A18-49 and A25-54. It runs on over 20,500
movie screens in over 1,600 theaters prior to the film trailers and
feature film, and showcases entertainment content along with local,
regional and national advertising. Broadcast spot placement in NCM's
pre-show also includes The LEN (Lobby Entertainment Network), an
in-theater lobby network of flat screens located in high-traffic areas.
Beginning in November of 2017, Mediaocean will also include Nielsen
Custom Cinema Research Metrics for NCM in Spectra.
"As TV ratings continue to shrink and media buyers need ratings points
in local markets, cinema is a great premium video option for reaching
engaged, affluent, and influential younger audiences who tend to be
light TV viewers," said Dan Thomas, vice president, National Spot Sales
with National CineMedia (NCM). "Leveraging the power of cinema in your
marketplace has never been easier, and NCM gives you the opportunity to
align campaigns with the best Hollywood content with no political
advertising, no pre-emptions and no premiums."
"NCM's audience reach extends beyond 750 million moviegoers and brings
unprecedented scale. TV buyers are looking for new vehicles to reach
incremental audience and capture viewers across screens within their
markets. NCM is the ideal partner to reach that audience in the geos
that matter most to their campaigns," said Cordie De Pascale, VP of
Partnerships of Mediaocean.
