"We are very excited to provide the highest-level reporting at scale on over 2,000 local monthly connected TV campaigns with third-party reporting on every single ad impression from Comscore, a partner for planning, transacting and evaluating media across platforms," said Brian Hunt, head of OTT/CTV for CompulseOTT and Sinclair Digital Group. "This is an added layer of transparency that is essential and necessary for local and regional advertisers to evaluate their campaign performance in one place. No longer should self-reporting of campaign results be tolerated by local and regional advertisers. "Compulse360" will usher in a new era of transparency and accountability in OTT on a local level."
