MadHive and TransUnion Champion New Approach to Streaming TV Advertising

Partnership raises the bar for privacy-conscious identity and precise audience reach at scale, enriching MadHive’s proprietary CTV device graph with additional consumer insights

MadHive, the leading technology company engineered for modern TV advertising, today announced an alliance with TransUnion, a global information and insights company, to help advertisers navigate identity challenges across household and individual-level activation. The combination sets a new standard for privacy-minded identity and precise audience reach at scale in streaming TV channels and beyond.

The partnership will bring interoperability between TransUnion’s trusted TruAudience® Identity — a solution suite to improve identifier and attribute accuracy, depth and coverage for better connectivity — and the MadHive platform. As a result, clients will be able to better reach audiences across CTV, display and more while maximizing return on advertising investment and transparency. This will also enable publishers to optimize the monetization of their premium TV by preserving the value exchange of relevant advertising.

The integration builds on MadHive's proprietary CTV device graph and best-in-class data marketplace, which consists of first-party and third-party privacy-conscious data incorporated through premium publisher relationships. MadHive’s partner ecosystem enables expanded targeting and attribution capabilities, including KPIs such as brand awareness, purchase intent, site conversion, offline sales lift, foot traffic, and more.

In addition to powering more precise targeting and long-term durability against the deprecation of cookies through this alliance, MadHive’s purpose-built TV advertising technology equips advertisers with features for real-time optimization, sequential messaging, frequency control, incremental reach, and attribution across connected TV, digital video, display, and more.

“The foundation of MadHive’s ability to accurately connect the dots for advertisers rests on our device graph purpose-built for modern, programmatic TV,” said Luc Dumont, SVP of Business Development at MadHive. “With this partnership, advertisers will be able to bridge the gap between household-level and individual-level digital buying, which continues to be a challenge for linear TV.”

“MadHive has become one of the most trusted CTV activation players in the space,” said Matt Spiegel, EVP, Media and Entertainment Vertical at TransUnion. “By leveraging TruAudience Identity solutions, MadHive combines rich, local audience data with other first and third-party demographic and behavioral data across tens of millions of connected homes to supply marketers with greater audience precision in their campaigns.”

MadHive’s expanded CTV device graph is currently powering TV-anchored, full-funnel campaigns for brand and broadcast clients. In partnership with DTC brand, Cannaluxe, MadHive recently drove 150,000 e-commerce shopping sessions to NeimanMarcus.com and Cannaluxe.com. MadHive also leveraged real-time optimization capabilities to double down in high-performing markets like Texas, which drove 3.4x more sales than other DMAs and 51% of all sales overall.

MadHive’s infrastructure-as-a-service also currently powers TV advertising and local reach extension efforts for broadcasters including Fox, Scripps, and local affiliates. These partnerships have given MadHive unparalleled insight into digital TV buying behaviors, and a unique ability to find needle-in-a-haystack consumers on a local level, at national scale.
