JCDecaux Cityscape has brought Real Time Bidding (RTB) to programmatic digital out-of-home (DOOH) trading in Hong Kong and Macau with VIOOH, the world-leading supply side platform in the global programmatic OOH sector. 

JCDecaux Cityscape has brought Real Time Bidding (RTB) to programmatic digital out-of-home (DOOH) trading in Hong Kong and Macau with Wavemaker by GroupM and VIOOH, the world-leading supply side platform in the global programmatic OOH sector. The partnership executes through Sightline, the multichannel pDOOH solution by GroupM, which delivers an intelligent decisioning engine to advertisers, thereby accelerating programmatic campaign trading to real-time. This enables better audience targeting based on demographic, location and time-of-day, with an enhanced capability to display different data-triggered messages. 

First from Banana Boat: UV index triggering & audience targeting on sunscreen products

As the first client to adopt RTB on JCDecaux Cityscape’s Digital Frame Network, Banana Boat launches the first UV index triggered programmatic advertising campaign ‘Protects the Fun’ via VIOOH’s next-generation real-time platform, VIOOH Trading Manager.

With specific day parting and audience segmentation in mind, Banana Boat’s campaign targets their primary and secondary audiences: outgoing family and sporty individuals. The campaign aims to enhance the awareness on Banana Boat’s sunscreen products and increase regular usage to maintain protection from the sun.

Real-time bidding optimizes campaign delivery

Using UV index data from Hong Kong Observatory as a trigger, the ad is activated when the UV index reaches a 2+ rating, and displayed on selected digital frames. Banana Boat’s ad raises relevancy to the audience by reminding them to apply Banana Boat’s sunscreen products to shield against the unseen UV light, an invisible danger that could be present during both sunny and cloudy days.

Sanbei  Mok, Senior Brand Manager of Edgewell Personal Care Hong Kong Limited, said  "We are thrilled to be the first client to utilize real-time bidding on JCDecaux Cityscape's premium Digital Frame Network to launch our UV index triggered 'Protects the Fun’ programmatic advertising campaign. By combining audience segmentation, day parting, and the innovative use of UV index trigger, we are confident that our campaign will drive brand awareness and engagement to new heights."

Yoann El Jaouhari, Managing Director of JCDecaux Cityscape, said  “JCDecaux Cityscape now offers advertisers an advanced and effective way to reach their audiences. By utilizing our exclusive real-time data impressions, and leveraging VIOOH's real-time ad serving technology, we can broadcast content based on specific real-time data, ensuring that advertisements are relevant and reach the right audience at the right time. When advertising becomes truly relevant, addressing audiences where and when they need it the most, it becomes valuable information. This approach allows brands to enhance customer retention and acquisition, build long-term trusted relationships, and we are excited to be a part of this journey.”
