PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Rentrak (NASDAQ: RENT), the leader in precisely measuring movies and TV everywhere, today announced a new local market television ratings contract with Wyse Advertising across 50+ markets.
With this agreement, Wyse replaces sample-based measurement service with Rentrak's local television currency, enabling agency's buyers and planners to deliver more efficient, effective and successful TV campaigns for their TV advertising clients.
"Rentrak's advanced targeting is a much better approach to TV audience measurement. Their advanced demographic ratings are a far more relevant metric for understanding the effectiveness of local television in reaching actual buyers and will give our agency a distinct competitive advantage over other agencies still using only traditional demographics produced by small samples of paid panelists," said Wyse's Senior Vice President Director of Media Susanne Brockman.
"We like the number of households Rentrak uses to derive measurements and the consistent measurement Rentrak provides. We also like the fact that every market is measured daily so we can provide our clients true ratings on all programming we buy for them whenever it runs. The qualitative data provided will help us make smarter planning and buying decisions, plus we can track our buys monthly and make up under delivery in a more timely manner." said Patty Stachowicz, Wyse's broadcast buying supervisor.Rentrak's television ratings service is the only fully-integrated system of detailed satellite, telco and cable TV viewing information from more than 25 million TVs nationwide including granular information for TV programming in all 210 local markets.
