Roku Reimagines Television Advertising 

Having pioneered the digital media player market, industry powerhouse Roku once again paved a new path.

And, with the robust Roku Ad Manager dashboard, campaigns could be set up quickly and seamlessly, allowing for flexible budget control and the ability to measure and optimize campaign performance in real time.  

Roku's innovative advertising approach showcased pushing traditional television marketing into the digital advertising age. 

Samba TV Continues to Revolutionize Marketing

But Eureka Park success story, Samba TV, is staying ahead of the curve. Samba TV has also powered software in TV devices spanning 24 companies, giving advertisers a comprehensive look at demographics across more than 40 million devices.  

On top of using automatic content recognition in its software, Samba TV showcased, among other things, SambaID, providing its network of partners and marketers the ability to trade data currency from its findings.
