“The next twelve months will be the most consequential time for the video advertising industry in recent history. By coming together now through the Joint Industry Committee, buyers and sellers are building a new foundation that will be needed to scale a multi-currency, cross-platform model for video ad measurement. The upcoming JIC Measurement Summit will serve as a forum to update the industry on the work being done to position the market for the future,” said Brittany Slattery, Chief Marketing Officer at OpenAP.

The JIC Measurement Summit is an important milestone in the JIC’s efforts over the last four months to bring transparency on currency readiness ahead of the 2024 Broadcast Year. Since its formation in January 2023, the JIC has championed collaboration across its buyside and sellside participants to establish and maintain a baseline set of standards for third-party measurement vendors conducting cross-platform long-form video currency services, and to create a programmer data set to enable third-party measurement by harmonizing streaming viewership data brought together by OpenAP infrastructure. On March 1, the JIC announced the critical first step in the former by unveiling its initial certification criteria for cross-platform currencies.
