DoubleVerify Launches Brand Safety and Suitability Verification Across YouTube, Extending Quality Coverage for Global Brands

DV expands its partnership with YouTube to identify off-brand content, enabling measurement of Authentic ImpressionⓇ delivery

NEW YORK, Dec. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — DoubleVerify (“DV”), the leading independent provider of marketing measurement software and analytics, today announced an expanded partnership with YouTube to deliver brand safety and suitability measurement for campaigns run on the platform. The partnership drives greater campaign transparency and unlocks potential performance for advertisers wishing to avoid unsuitable content or categories of lesser relevance to the brand.

“We are excited to enter a new phase of partnership with YouTube,” said Wayne Gattinella, CEO of DoubleVerify. “Today, brand suitability is a core advertiser expectation – across all media types and buying platforms. With our expanded partnership, DoubleVerify is ensuring brand suitability on the world’s leading online video platform.”

YouTube advertisers will now benefit from DV’s best-in-class Brand Safety and Suitability coverage, providing a consistent, third-party verification methodology aligned with their broader media measurement efforts. Advertisers will receive detailed insights into the appropriateness of the media on which their video campaigns are running, creating a continuous feedback loop that improves campaign targeting.

Specifically, Brand Safety and Suitability controls give advertisers access to DV monitoring against 11 categories that can severely challenge brand safety, such as violence, hate speech and pornography.

Also, advertisers can opt into 10 additional Brand Targeting categories, such as pets, automotive and travel – based on relevance to the brand.

“We are giving advertisers comprehensive intelligence and actionable insights to help them avoid off-brand media,” added Gattinella. “Whether content is damaging to brand equity or simply irrelevant, we are helping advertisers maximize campaign success on YouTube.”

DoubleVerify’s best-in-class content classification system extends across devices – mobile, desktop and CTV – and 20 different languages. Brand Safety and Suitability controls are available via DoubleVerify’s flagship service and performance platform, DV Pinnacle® – for YouTube Auction and YouTube Reserve inventory, including TrueView, Bumper Ads and Google Preferred.

In October 2016, DoubleVerify and YouTube partnered for viewability and fraud measurement across the platform. The addition of brand safety and suitability lets DV measure delivery of the DV Authentic Impression® – a proprietary, MRC-accredited metric of media quality and effectiveness – on YouTube. To be counted as Authentic, an impression must be fully viewed, by a real person, in a brand-suitable environment.

Mary Kay Inc. and The Museum at The Fashion Institute of Technology Partner for a Pink-Centric Panel Discussion in Conjunction with Special Exhibition ‘Pink: The History of a Punk, Pretty, Powerful Color’

NEW YORK, N.Y., Dec. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — From pink makeup compacts to the iconic pink Cadillac, global beauty brand Mary Kay has been synonymous with the color pink for more than five decades. On December 13, 2018, Mary Kay will partner with The Museum at FIT (MFIT) to host a scholarly panel discussion, ‘Powerful Pink: From Cute to Confident,’ at the Katie Murphy Amphitheatre on the New York City FIT campus. Panelists include Luis Casco, Mary Kay Global Beauty Ambassador and celebrity makeup artist; Kate Greene, Vice President of Communications and Creative Direction at Givaudan and Karen Young, FIT adjunct professor and founder of The Young Group. The panel discussion will be moderated by Sheryl Adkins-Green, Chief Marketing Officer for Mary Kay Inc.

The scholarly panel discussion is in conjunction with MFIT’s special exhibition, ‘Pink: The History of a Punk, Pretty, Powerful Color,’ which is open to the public through January 5, 2019. Earlier this fall, in celebration of Mary Kay’s 55th anniversary, the global cosmetics powerhouse partnered with the fashion museum to unveil the special exhibition and honor the complex, multifaceted color while exploring its changing significance throughout history.

“We’re proud to partner with The Museum at FIT to discuss the impact and importance of pink in cosmetics, as part of its special exhibition,” said Sheryl Adkins-Green, Chief Marketing Officer for Mary Kay Inc. “In 1963, Mary Kay Ash launched her dream company with her life savings of $5,000 because she believed in the potential of women and she believed in the power of pink!”.

MFIT’s ‘Pink: The History of a Punk, Pretty, Powerful Color’ exhibition features clothing dating from the 18th century to the present that spans the pink color spectrum and includes designer brands such as Christian Dior and Gucci. As part of this fashion retrospective, the exhibit seeks to question clichés and correct popular misconceptions, such as the idea that the color pink is childish or exclusive to women.

“The response to ‘Pink: The History of a Punk, Pretty, Powerful Color’ has been overwhelmingly positive and we’re delighted to continue our partnership with Mary Kay by hosting this panel to discuss the company’s signature color and the power of pink in cosmetics,” said Dr. Valerie Steele, Director and Chief Curator of The Museum at FIT. “Pink has a long and illustrious history in fashion and beauty, and this is sure to be a lively and educational event.
