Videa, an online marketplace for automated television advertising, today announced new developments for its cloud-based platform, that will further advance broadcast and advertising capabilities across the local TV ecosystem. Videa’s developments and momentum, come just one week before the NAB Show in Las Vegas, where the media, entertainment and technology community will gather to discuss breakthrough solutions that are helping to shape the future of television and entertainment.
Videa’s significant platform developments that are helping to address the needs of broadcasters and advertisers, include:
