Samsung Serves Up New DSP

Big news: Samsung is launching a self-serve media buying platform (DSP).

Why this matters #1: Samsung has ≈ 50M smart TVs and accounts for 60% of the automatic content recognition (ACR) footprint in the US.  It is hard to believe, but they are flying under the radar compared to other players (Roku, etc.) in the smart TV wars.
