MediaMath Participates as a Launch Partner via BidSwitch

NEWPORT BEACH, CA–(Marketwired – Jul 8, 2015) –  AerServ, the only mobile-first video mediation platform, today announced a partnership with BidSwitch, a unique, one-to-many point of integration that connects platforms in the global programmatic ecosystem, with over 100 buyers, and over 50 strategically selected supply sources. As part of the deal, BidSwitch buyers will receive seamless access to AerServ’s high quality mobile and mobile video ad inventory, enabling smarter, more efficient programmatic mobile marketing campaigns. In addition, AerServ’s publishers will benefit through increased exposure to more buyers on the BidSwitch platform.

Although Business Insider recently projected that the US digital ad market will reach a “programmatic tipping point” in 2015, with mobile and video driving that growth, buyers and brands today are faced with a lack of premium mobile inventory and a lack of standardization. AerServ’s mediation platform offers support of the IAB’s MRAID and VAST/VPAID specifications, allowing advertisers to distribute rich, interactive mobile ads at scale. This will provide the best consumer experience, increasing engagement rates while simultaneously decreasing the strain on media buyers.

“In response to ever-increasing demand for mobile RTB, we have been focused on ramping up our programmatic offerings, and are very pleased to partner with BidSwitch, the only infrastructure switch for RTB in the industry, to enable efficient programmatic buying of high quality mobile and mobile video ad inventory at scale,” commented AerServ CEO Josh Speyer.

“eMarketer has ranked mobile as the number one area of opportunity for programmatic, yet very few platforms offer access to this volume of mobile video inventory, and even less can match the quality of AerServ’s publishers,” said Bob Walczak, General Manager, BidSwitch. “We are thrilled to offer our partners and customers effortless access to that inventory.”

Marketers will be able to access AerServ’s supply via MediaMath, a leading global marketing technology provider and AerServ’s demand launch partner. “BidSwitch is a strong global partner of ours, providing simple, flexible, and cost effective access to expansive international supply. The addition of AerServ’s premium mobile and mobile video inventory supports our investment in creating a cross-channel programmatic platform with unmatched scale and will definitely be a value-add for our clients,” remarked John Pedicino, Global Manager of Business Development at MediaMath. AerServ is a part of MediaMath’s OPEN program, which was built on the foundation of connecting buyers and sellers to enable collaboration between the best-of-breed in the media ecosystem.
