The Data Sciences Division of Dentsu Aegis Network (DAN) India has announced the launch of DAN Prism, a unique video planning and insights tool that provides a single audience view across television and digital.
DAN Prism overlays the consumption pattern of the digital consumers on Facebook, YouTube and programmatic video with BARC India to provide rich audience insights. These insights are used for planning and activation through a single reach curve across all media platforms in a matter of minutes using a series of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms.
Gautam Mehra, Chief Data Officer, Dentsu Aegis Network South Asia, said, “In the ever-changing media landscape, we are experiencing a golden age of video consumption in India with fantastic content and platforms. The proliferation of smart devices is changing the way consumers consume content. Today, India boasts of 800+ TV channels watched by 780 million Indians. There are nearly 100 million subscribers to OTT platforms and nearly 260 million online video watchers in the country. Evidently, multi-screening has become a part of the natural video consumption habit of the average Indian. One of Dentsu Aegis’ core objectives today is to deliver a proprietary, audience-first approach to video planning that maximises client investment across TV and digital video. The idea here is always to harness the true power of data. DAN Prism is just one more step in that direction.”
The tool will be used for all Dentsu Aegis Network India clients. The tool is collaboration across the TV and digital brands under the Network’s umbrella in India.
“The TV viewing landscape of the country is swiftly changing owing to the mushrooming of a large number of OTT players, better connectivity and increased smartphone penetration. As a country, we are now spending a lot more time watching video content. A large part of this is done on the mobile and on tablets. DAN Prism serves to be a powerful tool that reflects people’s behaviours today, enabled by convergence,” said Rajni Menon, CEO, Carat India.
