Nielsen is expanding its cross-platform measurement of YouTube across computer, mobile and connected TV devices. First available in Nielsen Total Ad Ratings, Nielsen Four-Screen Ad Deduplication will be foundational to deduplicate audiences across devices, services and platforms in the company’s forthcoming cross-media measurement platform, Nielsen ONE. “Four-screen measurement is a critical step toward Nielsen ONE, as it provides the comparability necessary to produce a trusted, deduplicated number across platforms that enables clients to better understand reach, manage frequency and verify the audiences of their media buys,” said Kim Gilberti, SVP Product Management, Nielsen. “As consumer engagement across platforms continues to converge, digital measurement must provide continuous and comparable metrics across all channels.”
