This represents approximately 42% coverage of the 26,983 corporate Taxis in the special wards and Busan transportation zone (according to the Kanto District Transport Bureau as of March 31, 2023).
*2 LIVE BOARD uses impressions that take into account the visibility rate based on visibility surveys (VAC = Visibility Adjusted Contact / total number of people who saw the ad), as recommended in the OOH Global Measurement Guidelines. Of the number of people in the viewing area of a medium (OTS = Opportunity to See), the number of people who may come into contact with an OOH ad (OTC = Opportunity to Contact / takes into account the direction of movement within the viewing area and the presence of obstacles) is defined. The number of people who are likely to actually see the advertisement (VAC) is estimated by adding the visibility rate for each media to this number.

A digital OOH ad network operator achieving data driven targeting and effectiveness verification

LIVE BOARD is the first company in Japan to achieve impression-based (VAC) advertisement delivery in OOH. We deploy advertisement delivery and billing systems in accordance with actual conditions that are based on the estimated number of viewers "at that time, in that place, and for that specific ad," even during the COVID-19 pandemic, when people's movement patterns are prone to change. In addition, by combining big data from Japan's largest carriers with our own network, which includes a wide range of digital OOH across Japan, including outdoor, indoor, train, and station OOH ads, we have been able to deliver personalized ads, such as targeting by gender and age, that was not possible with traditional OOH.
