Extreme Reach network expands beyond 4000 TV/cable broadcast members

Extreme Reach network surpasses 4000 TV membersThe number 4000 is an important membership benchmark that signifies that the Extreme Reach pure-digital network has reached critical mass for North American TV ad delivery.

More important, however, is the unique way those digital deliveries are made across the 4000+ TV/Cable member destinations: 1) Whether SD or HD commercials, the master can be uploaded to Extreme Reach directly from the production system as soon as the spots are finalized, 2) The TV Commercials can be digitally delivered over the Extreme Reach network to any member destination in a matter of minutes, and 3) Each commercial is customized to meet each TV station’s exact video specifications (custom digital media format, custom wrapper, customized metadata and other attributes that are specifically tailored to each broadcaster’s workflow).

The elimination of the delays that occur between spot production and the airing of those commercials gives rise to a new formula that could potentially change the game for marketers who rely on time-sensitive promotional TV advertising (such as automotive, entertainment, retail, politicals, etc.):
Direct-from-production SD/HD spot upload + immediate deliveries + massive digital network + automated broadcast processing = New, unprecedented  speed of TV messaging and response to market events.
