Our vision. To be a leading digital media owner.

Creativity, quality and great service have always been the cornerstones of our activities. Our Out-of-Home media channels build brand awareness, stature and fame, and have been doing so for years, in cities, transport and retail hubs.

Now we have three investment pillars which are powering future growth in Out-of-Home media and transforming our business from outdoor to digital media.  

We currently account for 42% of all digital Out-of-Home impressions (Route 32). 
  • Digital The right screens in the right locations, creating national scale and presence

  • Data Rich, location datasets that power campaign optimisation, relevance and audience targeting

  • Delivery Ad-serving platforms that drive the right ad to the right audience at the right time

BranDO. A benchmark for digital Out-of-Home.

In October 2017, JCDecaux  announced its move towards automated trading and planning that gives partners seamless access to its 42% market share of digital viewed impressions in the UK (source: Route 32) . To accompany this automated platform, JCDecaux has also launched its industry-leading brand charter, named BranDO, to outline the automated trading standards that the company will adhere to. BranDO comprises a set of guidelines on the issues of viewability, measurement, accountability, transparency and brand safety, providing a blueprint for JCDecaux as it moves towards a more automated delivery model. 
  • Viewability – We will only measure ads that have been ‘viewed’ using the JIC-approved Route audience measurement system. This means ‘eyes on’ ad copy rather than an opportunity to see (viewed rather than viewable). We will only count real people.
  • Measurement – All audience viewed impressions will be published. We will provide the raw viewing logs that can be used for verification. Any data enrichment on top of the Route viewed impressions will be made available to all parties to the trade.
  • Accountability – Playout reports including any hardware or software issues will be published through a PwC audited process. A report on both traded and delivered viewed impressions will be available throughout the campaign.
  • Transparency – We will publish a quarterly report of our total level of campaign compliance.
  • Brand safety – We will have the highest regard for brand safety and the security of our networks. We will utilise the highest quality screens, build and location for a brand safe display environment. We will comply with all legal and regulatory frameworks to ensure we strive for the highest standards in sustainability and health and safety.
  • Automation – Automated trades will use the IAB UK approved OpenDirect and OpenRTB protocols. Copy will be approved to meet ASA and local authority standards for display in a public space.

#onebillioneyeballs. Digital market leaders.

We're already market leaders in digital Out-of-Home, with a 42% share of impressions. But we're continuing to transform our portfolio to realise our ambition: to be recognised as a leading digital media owner. 

Our investment is powered by the '3 Ds' - digital Out-of-Home media channels, powered by data, perfectly delivered.

We are building best-in-class digital media products which will showcase advertising to the optimum. Our data investment means these campaigns can be optimised according to audience, reaching them with pinpoint accuracy by location, day of week and time of day using our exclusive supply-side platform and audience planning tool VIOOH Automation.  And in 2016 we unveiled our proprietary content management system, SmartContent, which delivers the right creative at the right time to the right place. Together, the 3 Ds optimise digital Out-of-Home, making it targeted, contextual and topical. Increasingly relevant, increasingly engaging and increasingly effective. 

Building brand fame. Classic media.

JCDecaux classic media products build brands. They generate high levels of coverage and frequency and elevate an advertiser's message above the noise of other competing communication channels. Huge stand-out sites provide unmissable ownership of the UK’s major arterial routes and within the most important rail and air transport hubs across the UK. City centre, retail and transport media delivers a brand message at the point of action, influencing daily decision-making and purchase planning.
