Nielsen Plays Defense as Rivals Press New Measurement Guarantees at NewFronts

Samba TV and LG Ads included testimonials from agency and client customers backing their alternative measurements or guarantees.

How Nielsen, Comscore, Samba TV and Innovid Measured Up at NewFronts

But in Samba TV’s view, nothing matters without the ability to achieve and measure incremental reach. The vast majority (97%) of all linear TV ad impressions in Q4 were shown over and over again to the same 55% of US viewers, according to research conducted by Samba using ACR technology.
