About Vizio CTV attribution
The Vizio SmartCast OS for streaming runs across all Vizio TVs.
CTV apps streaming on Vizio can integrate with AppsFlyer via API to receive attribution data and performance measurements about which sources (non-organic or organic) and paid campaigns drive app open and in-app events. Marketers rely on these insights to measure and optimize marketing activities.
The Vizio API integration supports:
- Vizio Smart TVs.
- CTV-to-CTV attribution and event recording. Meaning, attribution and recording of Vizio first app opens (the equivalent of installs) and events that occur on a user's Vizio device.
