Measurement is in the midst of an upheaval. The sheer number of platforms for content delivery, coupled with the shortcomings of measurement stalwarts, have made analyzing campaign reach and effectiveness increasingly more complicated.

Media companies and TV ad leaders have been cautiously exploring a post-Nielsen world, integrating currency alternatives such as VideoAmp, Comscore and iSpot.tv within their deals.
