Benefits of Membership

The media landscape is changing dramatically, and the television marketplace is changing with it. There has been a significant shift from a TV landscape to a multi-platform, multi-screen media environment, driven by new forms of data. These changes are driving the need for content providers, media agencies, and advertisers to understand and measure the impact of their content as it is consumed across multiple screens. The media research initiatives funded by CIMM ensure that effective media measurement keeps pace with the rapidly changing media, technology and data environment.
