New York, N.Y., May 27, 2010 — Experian Marketing Services (EMS), a global leader in targeting and customer engagement, today announced a partnership with addressable advertising leader INVIDI Technologies.

Experian Marketing Services and INVIDI will provide consumer segmentation across traditional and digital media for advertisers, television networks and multichannel television distributors.
The Experian data will increase targeting precision to optimize efficiency and effectiveness of advanced advertising techniques based on more accountable measurement of addressable television. Experian Marketing Services gives marketers the broadest and deepest set of consumer data from 215 million individuals and 110 million households in the United States to enrich the understanding of customers across all online and offline channels and media.

“This exciting partnership further expands our marketing footprint, highlighting Experian Marketing Services’ superior targeting across traditional and digital media,” said Ty Taylor, Experian Digital Advertising Services president. “This key offering for television advertisers will help them make better decisions powered by our data, analytics and marketing technology. Working with INVIDI will give advertisers increased opportunities for greater brand advocacy and significantly improve their ROI.”

“Experian Marketing Services is an impressive addition to an already powerful group of strategic partners and further positions INVIDI as the clear, best choice for addressability around the world,” explained INVIDI CEO David Downey. “With EMS and INVIDI working together, advertisers for the first time will be able to close the loop and truly measure the effectiveness of television advertising, while also leveraging EMS’ depth and breadth of data sources for advanced targeting. Not only will advertisers learn what is working, but they will also learn what is ineffective and be able to use that information to improve future campaign performance. Television has finally taken a leap into full accountability by becoming a smart medium that gets even smarter over time.”

Kosta Skoulikaris, senior director of Digital Advertising Services for Experian Marketing Services, will join INVIDI’s board as an observer.
