    Yahoo launches Identity Solutions for CTV environments

    Yahoo Advertising has launched Yahoo Identity Solutions for connected TV (CTV) environments, including Paramount.

    The move will see Yahoo ConnectID and Next-Gen Solutions products made available for STV buys through the Yahoo DSP in Australia.

    The solution will allow advertisers to better target and measure the omnichannel performance of their campaigns across CTV environments as well as other addressable and non-addressable channels. 

    Elizabeth Herbst-Brady, chief revenue officer at Yahoo, said: “As CTV investments increase, identity signals are declining, impacting targeting and performance across channels, including CTV.

    “Yahoo is committed to helping advertisers evolve with the landscape, safeguarding addressability and measurement for our partners while supporting consumer privacy. Today, we’re excited to introduce Yahoo Identity Solutions to CTV environments, furthering its momentum across the industry.”

    Leo O’Connor, SVP of advertising at Paramount, added: “Implementing the Identity Solution exemplifies Paramount’s commitment to providing best-in-class programmatic activation.

    “The enrichment of our premium inventory with Yahoo ConnectID will allow our clients to optimise their campaigns with precision targeting and accurate performance insights.”

    Identity Solutions takes an integrated, omnichannel approach to the identity-constrained world and consists of two components: Yahoo ConnectID for addressable environments and Next-Gen Solutions for non-addressable. 

    Yahoo ConnectID is a first-party data-powered identity solution, fueled by direct consumer relationships with more than 55 million authenticated users in Australia and Southeast Asia. The ConnectID expansion on CTV bridges the gap between CTV and other digital channels.

    Next-Gen Solutions is an AI-built solution for non-addressable environments, when user identity is not available. It leverages ConnectID users as a panel audience and creates inferences for targeting, optimisation and measurement to ensure campaign effectiveness when user identity isn’t available.

    In the US, the new CTV solution will extend to networks and environments including Tubi, NBCUniversal, and FreeWheel, with more expected to be made available.
