Revenue Operations: the Vistar Ad Exchange

Vistar Media’s Ad Exchange provides media owners with access to the largest source of digital demand from the world’s top programmatic buyers. Vistar’s programmatic dashboard gives media owners full transparency and control over monetizing your inventory. Whether your selling on the open exchange or through Deals Discovery, you determine the method of transacting, how much to charge, and what inventory to make available. Vistar brings buyers to you, helping you increase the scale of brands you work and tap into new digital sources of revenue.

Ad Operations: the Vistar Ad Server

The easiest and fastest way to gain access to the monetization from the Vistar Exchange is through using the Vistar Ad Server. The Vistar Ad Server takes your networking into programmatic territory, using a real-time decision engine for intelligent programmatic ad serving. Eliminate time spent manually scheduling complicated playlists, and apply targeting to determine where and when ads should run.

You’ll also gain access to near real-time reporting. Media owners gain insight into inventory performance and reduce the amount of time needed for billing with the help of Vistar’s network-wide reporting of ad delivery. Reports can be customized and exported for internal use or to share with clients.

Once you understand your inventory availability, you can maximize yield. Having a holistic view across direct and exchange demand, media owners' internal teams can reserve and book inventory in advance, without overselling.
