In September 2011, rVue integrated the rVue demand side platform (DSP) with DDS to provide DOOH campaign targeting, planning, buying, managing, analyzing and billing to agencies through access to rVue’s media planning and real-time buying tools. rVue’s DSP plugs directly into the DDS platform for digital campaign management.
