Digital Out of Home advertising is experiencing a rapid growth and this trend is set to continue in the future. While traditionally, outdoor digital screens were mostly located in public areas and monitored by commercial audience measurement services in the UK, the installation of new screens in semi-public and private locations, not serviced by existing measurement services, as well as the rise of new market entrants without the means to subscribe to current services, presents a challenge for media owners in monetizing these new screens through advertising sales.
The challenge lies in the lack of cost-effective access to accurate and timely audience measurement data, making Crowd-Sense a crucial solution to consider.
What is Crowd-Sense?
Crowd-Sense is a brand new service which provides a highly accurate measurement of audience impressions for any digital screen in near real time. Data collection is completely anonymous and 100% compliant with GDPR.
Crowd-Sense collectors remove the unknowns when it comes to impression measurement for out of home advertising.
At the heart of Crowd-Sense is the collector. Tiny and low power, requiring just a USB power source and a Wi-Fi or ethernet connection, the collector is simply installed within the frame and will start collecting data immediately.
