NEW YORK, NY–(Marketwired – Feb 19, 2014) – Sonobi today announced its strategic partnership with MediaMath to provide advertisers direct, programmatic access to a new class of certified premium inventory.

By integrating Sonobi's certified premium inventory into MediaMath's TerminalOne Marketing Operating System™, advertisers will benefit from an immediate increase in reach and frequency against their high-value target segments, along with the intelligence and workflow efficiencies of automated media transactions. By providing access to this class of supply through a channel never before available, publishers, too, will be able to be more efficient in fulfilling display campaigns, while gaining a better understanding of their audiences.

"We have accomplished the rare win-win for the buyer and seller with this launch. It increases scale and quality of programmatic supply for buyers, while bolstering revenue yield for the seller," said Chris Karl, CSO, Head of Market Development, Sonobi. 

Sonobi qualifies certified premium inventory based on the following criteria:

  • Comscore Top 200 publisher
  • First look access after sponsorship priority
  • Guaranteed availability of such premium inventory
  • Complete transparency

"We believe there is significant value compression across RTB spend," said Michael Connolly, CEO and Founder, Sonobi. "When a publisher is able to identify and isolate high-value users in a premium auction, it increases organic demand that does not exist in the RTB market today."

"Programmatic has offered unmatched scale and performance for digital marketers, and the expansion to premium channels only makes it more enticing, especially to big brand advertisers who have otherwise been hesitant to make the leap," said Greg Williams, Co-Founder, SVP OPEN Partnerships, MediaMath. "Our partnership with Sonobi and the ability to connect advertisers to premium publishers in a more efficient manner is indicative of the future of programmatic."
