Tokyo Metro "Metro Concourse Vision" 225 screens, 5 stations, 7 areas, now available on the LIVE BOARD Marketplace


Metro Ad Agency Co., Ltd. and LIVE BOARD, INC. will jointly connect and integrate Metro Concourse Vision, a station screen network, via the LIVE BOARD Marketplace*1 from February 5, 2024 (Monday). A total of 225 screens will be integrated, covering five stations and seven areas of Tokyo Metro Takadanobaba Station, Ueno Station (Ginza Line direction), Otemachi Station (Marunouchi Line, Chiyoda Line, Hanzomon Line), Nihonbashi Station, and Iidabashi Station. In addition to the traditional inventory buying process which involves specifying a period and number of ad plays, the screens are now available to buy by the audience impressions (VAC*2) generated from a mathematical model. The impression measurement is based on location data (including data from NTT DOCOMO) and analytics in order to calculate the total number of audience views of an ad by stations. 

*1 The entire digital OOH advertising space (inventory) handled by LIVE BOARD, including its own and other companies'.
*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.

In Tokyo Metro, "Tokyo Metro Vision" has been connected and linked to a total of 19,492 screens on all 9 lines since October 9, 2023 (Monday). In addition, this project will be able to reach the highest number of passengers among Tokyo Metro stations, which have more than 100,000 passengers per day.

Together Metro Ad Agency and LIVE BOARD continue to provide effective and efficient ways to activate transport ads in order to bring new business opportunities and evolve the DOOH industry.

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.
