Customer

Our customer is True[X] – a US-based technology company that builds the next generation of advertising products and premium video experiences.

The company pioneered the engagement-based ad model and now delivers effective advertising for on-demand, interactive media.

Thus, our customer provides the best advertising experience for consumers, the best monetization for premium publishers, and the best return for brand advertisers.
