Precision in Measuring CTV, YouTube & TV Amid Walled Garden Challenges


With buyers and planners shifting budgets from Linear TV to thriving CTV, the challenge of deduplicating CTV (including YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime) and TV metrics becomes apparent. With YouTube dominating CTV ad spending, traditional TV and AV measurement methods grapple with walled-garden complexities, hindering accurate cross-platform data comparisons within the same campaigns. 

Beatgrid provides precise deduplicated reach and frequency measurement, along with brand lift, on a person level, using a deterministic approach to cross-media and ad effectiveness measurement. Allowing media buyers and planners to optimize media investments, understand cross-media metrics, CTV incrementality, and the impact of campaigns. With its unique single-source methodology it empowers marketers to confidently evaluate their campaign impact, aligning with consumer behavior.

Campaign data from over 500 studies revealed insights into the changing viewership patterns of consumers as they move seamlessly between Linear, Digital, CTV, and Online video chasing the best content. The findings proved the key role of YouTube in engaging Gen Zs, the continued significance of Linear TV with older audiences, and the rising importance of CTV (BVOD+AVOD), poised as the new-age Linear TV. 

Impressively, campaigns that seamlessly blended TV and CTV, along with the strategic addition of YouTube, achieved an outstanding 65% incremental reach in the online video platform. This not only effectively captivated younger audiences but also led to a tangible increase in brand lift. This approach also provided a thorough understanding of incremental reach across various demographic segments.

Terrie Brennan, Chief Commercial Officer at Beatgrid adds:Beatgrid’s unique deduplicated Reach & Frequency and Brand Lift approach empowers advertisers and agencies to optimize ad accuracy and budget allocation across industries. Our data reveals YouTube’s exceptional incremental reach among younger audiences in 500+ global campaigns, complementing TV and CTV strengths.”
