Innovid – An independent omni-channel advertising, creative and analytics platform built exclusively for television


The web ecosystem has been a perfect medium for delivering and consuming myriads ad formats, and now CTV advertising actively changes experience on TV. Unlike traditional television, the Internet as a platform is universal in making content available from any spot on the world. As linear TV for advertising loses its former relevance, Internet-connected one is massively paving the road for flexible and selective advertising. This marks that the era of cable television and TV commercials is on a decline. Streaming media is what the viewers want. It is a new way of watching TV and video content. Compared to traditional TV ads, the overall convenience and reach of advertising are hard to beat, not even for the consumers.

Innovid is the world's leading connected TV and video advertising platform that transforms the video experience across devices and empowers advertisers to create, deliver, and measure highly-personalized, data-driven advertising. The firm uses data to enable the personalization, delivery, and measurement of ads across the broadest breadth of digitally enabled channels in the market, including TV, video, display, social, and OOH. Innovid serves a global client base of brands, agencies, and publishers through over twelve offices across the Americas, Europe, and the Asia Pacific.
