SpotX Integrates Trade Desk ID to Grow Addressable Pool

Video ad monetization platform SpotX said it is integrating Trade Desk’s unified ID solution to give advertisers a bigger addressable audience pool and a better chance to find matches for their targeted campaigns.

“Unified ID is one of the clear leaders in web-based identity and will help advertisers more accurately get in front of that coveted addressable audience while increasing their overall reach and ultimately driving revenue, which is why we’ve chosen to partner with The Trade Desk on this initiative,” said Kelly McMahon, senior VP of global demand operations at SpotX. “The scale of The Trade Desk’s global cookie footprint made it a priority for SpotX to participate, and we’re excited to be among the first video SSPs to optimize this technology.”
