Rovi Corporation (NASDAQ: ROVI) today announced that it has formulated a new set-top-box (STB) measurement methodology to assess the effectiveness of advertising campaigns on interactive television guides. The methodology provides insights into live broadcasting, time-shifting and video-on-demand viewing habits from thousands of STBs. It provides Rovi with enhanced insight into viewer behavior and the performance of advertising campaigns on the guide. In addition, Rovi has signed agreements with more than 23 cable operators in order to grow its sample size to tens of thousands more STBs over the next 18 months.

ďDigital TV services and time-shift viewing technologies bring forth more accountable measurement capabilities for broadcast and cable networks, and advertisers. In todayís media environment, reaching and engaging TV viewers, calculating audience ratings based on new datasets, and identifying true ad campaign ROI is extremely complex and challenging. As such, advertisers and TV networks need new vehicles for delivering efficient and measurable campaign reach and results,Ē said Heather Way, research analyst, at Parks Associates.

Roviís advertising capabilities encompass multiple formats including banner ads and dynamic portals with a variety of content choices. Advertisers can use the guide as an entry point to interactive content portals where viewers can easily tune-in to TV programming, access video, get more information and learn about products and services. With the additional STB data, Rovi can offer advertisers in-depth post campaign analysis on how viewers use the guide throughout their TV viewing experience.

ďWe believe Rovi guides continue to be the go-to source for consumers to find out whatís on TV and decide what to watch,Ē said Corey Ferengul, EVP of product management and marketing for Rovi Corporation. ďThrough the evolution of our industry-leading guides, weíre offering advertisers the ability to directly address their audience while they are engaged and open to receiving information.Ē

Roviís new STB measuring methodology on a sample of deployed Rovi guides in STBs produced the following results from the period between January to March 2010:

- 78% of STBs with a guide are used to access the guide on a weekly basis.
- STB guide users visited the guide an average of eight times a day.
- STB guide users spend an average of 10 minutes in the guide daily.
- About one third of TV viewing time was a result of choices made from the guide.
