world to create
standard for the
Digital video is the communal fire of the modern era. It’s where billions are connecting, sharing, and exploring every millisecond. But it lacks the metrics established by TV, which has left $20bn untapped in the media industry. Digital video deserves a modern standard. So we created it. Tubular delivers ratings in context in a way no one else is doing. By knowing what the world is watching, we are empowering an entire industry to invest, monetize, and create with confidence, in the age of video.
Tubular is organizing the world of video and making sense of it all. Using machine learning algorithms, our technology classifies videos and creators by type, subject, topic, industry and vertical. Tubular’s Audience Ratings will further revolutionize digital video by unlocking the true value of audiences – just like TV. And we’re not stopping there. Our vision is to become the modern global measurement standard for ALL the world’s content.
A shared mission.
Creating a measurement standard for the modern era is no small task. It requires collaboration and partnership with global industry leaders. Founded in 2018, the Global Video Measurement Alliance (GVMA) banded together to solve the biggest challenges facing the world of digital video.
