Contextual Video

In today’s world, it is mandatory to automate the delivery of content. Publishers and Users recognize that a lot of today’s’ delivered video and video advertising frequently don’t match with the website content. They often see irrelevant media content, especially if the delivery is automated via a 3rd party and not manually selected by an editorial office.

With hyScore, we deliver analysis and structured data for video technology companies, publishers, and advertisers to have the basis to ease the matching between the content environment and the best matching video.


  • Video technology companies have developed great video player’s and video management platforms, but often they struggle to provide features for the contextual delivery of video content.
  • Many (News-)Publishers use external video libraries and provider to automate, deliver and enhance their content with video and video advertising, often without ensuring that this happens in the right context.
  • The consumer or user is – usually – annoyed seeing an irrelevant or disturbing video content/advertisement which is not related to the website’s content. As an example: “Why is there a video of a celebrity and fashion if I read an article about nature and climate change?”, and is leaving – if that happens more often – to another news portal. 
  • Publishers may risk their relationship with a user, brand or media agency by not providing cutting edge video delivery and targeting methods by showing irrelevant and non-matching videos and video content/ads.
