Telmar First to Avail Media Planners of Traffic Audit Bureau (TAB)’s Eyes-On Data

TAB Eyes-On Data Allows Planners to Compare and Combine Outdoor Media Market by Market with Other Media

New York, NY, August 07, 2010 --( Telmar, a global supplier of advertising media information software and services announced today the full integration of the Traffic Audit Bureau’s (TAB) Eyes-On Data into its suite of media planning services. Telmar’s integration of Eyes-On data allows advertisers, planners, and buyers the opportunity to fully realize the impact of outdoor advertising. Using the Eyes-On Data in Telmar systems, clients can use traditional media metrics such as % reach, average frequency, TRPS, and compare cost efficiencies using CPMs and CPPs. These industry-standard measurements for Out-of-Home facilitate bringing outdoor into the media mix.

“Telmar is the first to apply science to the TAB’s site level data and adapt it into a media-planning system that is fully compatible with all other media platforms,” said Stanley Federman, CEO, Telmar. “We’re delighted to provide media owners and buyers alike with a system to properly integrate this powerful media. Before the Eyes-On metrics, Outdoor as a category struggled with measurement; now it is a level playing field.”

“Media planners have always been challenged by a lack of standardized measurement when integrating OOH into multi-media campaigns,” said Andrew Marcus, VP Research for Clear Channel Outdoor. “Telmar recognized the need to put OOH in terms consistent with the advertising media industry. In order for operators to provide their clients with plans that fully integrate OOH, they needed fully compatible metrics.”

In partnership with MRI/GFK Eurisco, Telmar worked on the initial TAB Eyes-On ratings which improved the way previous metric systems measured audiences ‘likely to see’ an outdoor ad, with rich demographic and ethnographic data. Telmar brought data from a variety of sources including: recorded pedestrian traffic, circulation, and travel surveys together and applied a scientific method to the raw data.
