Hakuhodo DY Media Partners and DAC to offer Video Creative Planner X (Cross)TM, 〜a consulting service to optimize video ads〜

Tokyo, July 24, 2019 — Hakuhodo DY Media Partners Inc. and D.A.Consortium Inc. (DAC) are pleased to announce that they will begin offering Video Creative Planner X (Cross)TM, a consulting service to optimize video ads. This service will utilize new analytical tools paired with Video Creative PlannerTM, which was developed by both companies, and will be provided by inter- company specialized team within the Hakuhodo DY Group.


Video Creative Planner X (Cross)

Announced in January 2019, Video Creative PlannerTM* is an original Hakuhodo DY Group solution that was developed by visually or mechanically disassembling and identifying creative elements from approximately 8,000 actual YouTube video ads in Japan and giving each element a score to create a database of video ad performance. It is frequently used to analyze and plan


video ads to optimize video ad creative.

Video Creative Planner XTM is an advanced version of this solution that brings together Video Creative PlannerTM analytical results with media and platformer analytical tools and knowledge. This enables data analysts and creative staffs to work together as a team on analysis, planning, and operations and helps create an ongoing cycle of developing and running more effective video ads.


Companies with multiple brands often have brand-specific creative and evaluation standards, as well as different methods of running video ads, making it difficult to determine methods of optimizing ads comprehensively. However, Video Creative Planner XTM can steadily increase ad impact by evaluating ads across all brands using common standards and creating and running ads optimized for the company as a whole rather than a specific brand.


Before this announcement, Hakuhodo DY Media Partners and DAC conducted analysis trials of YouTube video ads of an advertiser with multiple brands. We were able to identify the companyʼs unique patterns of success as well as issues and engage in multiple brand video ad initiatives optimized for this company.


Hakuhodo DY Media Partners and DAC will continue to expand the analytical tools of Video Creative Planner XTM to enhance our consulting services and contribute the marketing efforts of advertiser companies.
