Advertima, the leading In-store Retail Media (Audience AI) specialist, and PADS4, the premier real-time in-store media content provider (CMS), have partnered on a scalable and cutting-edge ad-serving solution for digital signage networks in retail environments. This collaboration solves digital advertising’s existing constraints of real-time targeting, performance analytics, and accessibility.

Advertima’s visual-spatial sensors capture real-time anonymized audience data, transformed into specific pre-defined segments. This enables precise impression-based direct I/O and programmatic campaign delivery to target audiences, mirroring online capabilities. PADS4 and Advertima have developed a seamless integration that combines Advertima’s real-time audience data with PADS4’s real-time CMS ad-serving digital signage on a singular edge device.
