Media transport solutions provider LTN Global has announced the launch of a ‘market-first’ universal signaling solution.
Dubbed LTN Target, the product seeks to solve issues of fragmentation in distribution platforms and ad decisioning systems which have prevented linear channels from running national addressable ads at scale during live linear broadcasts.
LTN Target promises to achieve this by integrating with all parts of the advertising ecosystem to enable linear addressable advertising on any network, platform, and workflow. The solution includes capabilities including frame-accurate signaling, contextual metadata, cross-platform signaling and workflow automation.
The company said that the fully managed service interoperates with all ad decision providers, addressable platforms, broadcast automation, traffic, and scheduling systems.
LTN Global executive chairman and co-founder Malik Khan, said: “After decades of work, scalable national addressable TV advertising is finally here for linear networks – and the early adopters are going to enjoy a windfall in 2021.
“We’re excited to be part of the early stages of the addressable advertising revolution. LTN Target is the only automated universal signaling solution that integrates with all the parts of the
TV ecosystem to enable the scale needed to attract advertisers. Our customers have already used Target to deploy their first campaigns and are looking to make their ad inventory even more valuable through increasingly sophisticated data enhancements.”
