Understanding Programmatic DOOH
Programmatic DOOH

IAB Australia last week hosted a webinar about Digital Out of Home (DOOH). The webinar is open for non members and it explains the differences between programmatic DOOH and programmatic on other channels, like video and display. The slides are available here.

What makes special to buy programmatic DOOH

Bidding and Impressions

On DOOH one impression can result in multiple impressions, while in programmatic one won auction can result in only one impression.

According to IAB Australia, the auction in DOOH occurs ~1 minute in advance of the loop starting, between 15 seconds and 5 minutes.
