Press Release

New York, NY, March 2, 2017 -- AppNexus, the world’s leading independent advertising technology company, today announced the company’s Supply Side Platform (SSP) was selected and deployed by Goldbach Digital Services, the expert for successful multi-screen advertising, to help monetize independent publishers’ digital video inventory in the German, Swiss and Austrian markets. The alliance brings AppNexus’ video marketplace demand together with Goldbach’s premium video publishers to ensure advertisers and marketers reach target audiences across web, app, and IPTV devices in high quality environments.


“Consumers are cutting their cords and replacing linear television with connected devices,” said Eric Hoffert, SVP Video Technology, AppNexus. “Advertisers need technology to easily reach these audiences wherever they like to view content. By partnering with quality video inventory providers like Goldbach, we’re able to provide advertisers greater reach, addressability, and engagement at a fraction of the cost of TV.”


“AppNexus’ open platform and universal video monetization solution allows effortless integration with Goldbach’s data assets and the ability to manage multiple types of ad requests,” said Tino Burkhalter, CTO, Goldbach. “This enables us to more easily address fragmentation challenges for video across devices, CMS solutions, SDKs, and formats to offer uniform monetizaton. We’re able to maximize video revenue for publishers while minimizing operational effort, which we couldn’t find with other platforms.”
