Horizon Media and PubMatic will work together on cutting-edge technologies to enable automated bid optimization using customized advertiser-level performance signals through their relationship. Customers of Horizon can easily use this DSP-independent solution through PubMatic to improve purchasing effectiveness across marketing goals.
To automatically transfer spending to inventory that maximizes the advertiser’s return on marketing spending, Horizon’s HX will employ PubMatic’s intelligent bid optimization. This can be turned on for various success measures to improve campaign performance all around.
