Toronto, Canada - Hilite Outdoor, the first car-based digital media operator in Canada, today announced a partnership with Vistar Media, the leading global provider of software for programmatic digital out-of-home (DOOH).
Hilite Outdoor will leverage the Vistar supply-side platform (“SSP”) to allow buyers to purchase Hilite’s digital inventory programmatically, via an open exchange or private marketplace deals.
