TronTV case study

The Challenge

  • Improve Video inventory monetization.
  • Main technical challenge: optimize video delivery rate with (AI based) Display rate prediction

The Solution

  • Smart uses Machine Learning to predict the probability that a Video ad will be successfully displayed, automatically detecting the ones with low display probability.
  • For each Video RTB auction where there are multiple bidders, we penalize low performing ads (bid price is multiplied by the display probability)

Smart’s delivery rate optimization has been a huge success for our video performance. Since it began operating behind the scenes, there has been a major uplift in value for that segment of our inventory. It is a testament to Smart’s product team, which is always looking to improve and innovate on behalf of their clients.
