Unifying Auctions, Enhancing Viewer Experience, and Maximizing Publisher Yield

Publica, a leading Connected TV (CTV) ad server, proudly announces its participation in the Amazon Publisher Services (APS) Ad Server Certification Program for streaming TV. This collaboration marks a significant step forward in the industry’s pursuit of unified auctions, enhanced viewer experiences, and maximized publisher yield.

The Streaming TV Boom and the Power of Header Bidding

The streaming TV landscape is undergoing a transformative surge, with ad spend projected to double by 2026. This growth has fueled the demand for header bidding solutions, which create a level playing field for inventory, ensuring that every advertiser has an equal chance to bid on available ad space.

Header bidding empowers publishers to receive bids from multiple advertising exchanges simultaneously, maximizing campaign reach and effectiveness. By implementing the APS header bidding solution, publishers can seamlessly integrate APS demand into their ad inventory, attracting a broader pool of advertisers and driving increased revenue.
