Neustar is a real-time provider of cloud information services and data analytics focused on delivering timely information so that businesses can make critical data-driven decisions. The partnership is a springboard for Sorenson Media’s expansion into digitally-enabled television and together, the two companies will be able to add breadth and depth to analytics and insights for their broadcasting and advertising customers.

The partnership is geared to enhance Sorenson Media’s product Spark Enlight which is a comprehensive real-time television analytics & insights tool and to benefit advertisers and broadcasters in the digital television space. With the popularity of Smart TVs growing precipitously, broadcasters and advertisers will have large amounts of data to analyze and create key targeted campaigns across TV programs, channels, behavior, and locations. This will result in targeted ads synonymous with what we have seen in search engine and social media advertising.

“For decades, broadcasters and advertisers have had to rely on viewing data that provided a very low level of audience information, was based on small samples sizes and arrived days or weeks after the content was aired,” said Marcus Liassides, President and CEO of Sorenson Media. “Neustar’s audience data will help our Spark Enlight product provide broadcasters and advertisers with detailed audience viewing insights in near real-time while assisting them in optimizing their programming to better cater to audience preferences.”
