NEW YORK & TEL AVIV, Israel–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Perion Network Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: PERI), a technology leader in connecting advertisers to consumers across all major digital channels, announced today a partnership between its programmatic digital out of home (DOOH) platform, Hivestack, and Eletromidia, the major out of home (OOH) media company in Brazil, with more than 64,000 screens in the country’s largest cities, out of which more than 46,000 are designed for a high impact digital experience.
Combining Hivestack’s expertise in programmatic DOOH technology with Eletromidia’s scope and reach will empower local and global advertisers to leverage sophisticated and targeted campaigns, taking advantage of the precision and relevance programmatic media provides.

This integration incorporates 46,000 Eletromidia digital screens in a range of environments, such as shopping malls, urban furniture, residential and commercial buildings, as well as in airports and train stations across Brazil. These strategically placed screens, impacting over 29 million people daily, offer an unparalleled opportunity for advertisers to drive higher engagement and reach.
