The Definitive Measure of Media Quality

The DV Authentic Ad™ is a proprietary, MRC-accredited metric that ensures media quality. To be counted as Authentic, an ad must be fully viewed, by a real person, in a brand suitable environment, within the intended geography. DV is the only company accredited to measure and de-duplicate ad quality in this manner — enabling brands to use the Authentic Ad™ count as a defining, holistic KPI for campaign effectiveness.
