LiveRail monitors more than a dozen engagement metrics, such as percentage viewed/completed, pause/resume and muting, to give advertisers greater insight into the performance of their campaigns.  Capturing and tracking these metrics results in about 2 billion data points daily.  This data needs to be made available to customers in near real time for reporting and ad hoc analytics.  Ad hoc analysis is critical since it can move the conversation from asking ‘what happened’ to asking ‘why?’.

SET Media is a video technology company that connects brand advertisers with their audiences through high quality, targeted, and brand safe campaigns at scale. By leveraging computer vision with proprietary object, facial, and motion detection, SET’s discovery and targeting platform enables advertisers to run ads on only the most relevant content to their brand. Exclusive to SET is the ability to provide campaign reporting at the level of inventory, showing customers each video they have sponsored while ensuring complete brand safety and performance optimization. SET is the only company to offer this level of clarity and brand control over digital video advertising.
