TVGuide.co.uk has today launched Instant Ad Sync, a new native advert which syncs with live television, on its iPhone and iPad apps. TUI UK & I will be the first partner to take advantage of Instant Ad Sync, syncing native banners with the new Thomson ‘Moments’ TV advert, in a deal booked by MediaCom.
 
Instant Ad Sync will use server side ad recognition technology to identify the Thomson ‘Moments’advert when it broadcasts on TV. When the app recognises a Thomson advert, TVGuide.co.uk’s new custom-built ad server will provide an immediate push to the app for a synchronised native mobile advert to be displayed in-app. The campaign will create a second screen experience for the user.
 
TVGuide is the UK’s biggest mobile TV guide, with over 10 million downloads and 2 million active users across its iPhone and iPad applications.
 
TUI’s, Marketing Manager, Nikola Roberts: “Adding the TVGuide Instant Sync to the Thomson and First Choice TV campaigns, allowed TUI to connect their TV ads to different medium, ensuring a more integrated and relevant campaign”
 
TVGuide.co.uk’s CEO, Chetan Damani: "We are always looking for new advertising formats that are integrated with the user journey, and our new Instant Ad Sync offers just that. There are a number of TV ad syncing products on the market but they have numerous flaws which we have resolved with our product. Using our research that 84% of our users are in front of their TV while using the app, we have created a product that syncs in real time so that a matching banner will appear on the app when ads broadcast on television. We are delighted to be working with TUI UK & I and MediaCom as our launch partners for the new format.”
