How does Programmatic Out of Home work?

Like the DSP side of Pontiac, DOOH involves Supply Side and Demand Side platforms connecting advertising inventory with Advertisers who bid on the inventory in real time. Pontiac has built a native integration over the Vistar Media platform via their API, which allows our users to target any billboard they want across North America, Australia, and New Zealand.

The media is bought on a CPM basis, or cost per 1,000 impressions. When an ad call is sent, Vistar assigns an impression value to that spot and passes it to the bidder. Offline exposure to out of home placements is determined taking the following factors into account: Ad log timestamps, Device location, Venue type, and Screen location (indoor vs. outdoor). These factors combined with Mobile Device location data from SDK-based GPS companies and mobile panel partners provides an estimated user count of those in the vicinity of ad play.
