What is Clear Channel LaunchPAD?

LaunchPAD is\nClear Channel's programmatic trading gateway that connects our digital Out\nof Home inventory to SSPs and digital buying platforms. It\nallows advertisers to activate DOOH as part of omni-channel campaigns in\nthe fastest, most flexible way. 

Using\nClear Channel LaunchPAD, campaign planners can access and coordinate\nbuying options across multiple regions and metrics. We\ncan package asset, industry and audience data (including Clear Channel RADAR® optimised planning data available in markets). And through our multiple SSP\npartnerships, we can offer a broad range of inventory to advertisers through\ntheir digital buying platforms for integrated buying and planning. It’s\na dynamic and seamless system that brings all the benefits of the existing planning tool\necosystem together to give Clear Channel’s customers greater management and coordination.

How is LaunchPAD\ndifferent to Clear Channel AdPlatform?

AdPlatform is our\noriginal programmatic ad offering, which we launched several years ago and has\nfacilitated the launch of Clear Channel LaunchPAD. Since that\nlaunch, the data, technology and capability of digital Out of Home has\ndramatically scaled and improved, so we have needed to evolve our strategy and\nour offering.

Clear Channel LaunchPAD\ntakes all the learnings from the Adshel package and provides a more global and\nscaled approach across Europe – providing more opportunities and benefits for\ncustomers across the region.
