Field name updates
Media selling, buying, and billing and finance operations have historically existed and evolved in silos, and varying terminology across media reflects this. For example, the terms size, length, and dimensions typically refer to print ads, TV spots, and digital placements, respectively. However, they all ultimately refer to the same characteristic of the ad unit.
The media industry is cascading into an omnichannel workflow. Linear TV, CTV, and other digital video formats are converging as simply video. Print and OOH often have digital components. It is now essential to establish consistent terminology that accurately describes a given data point throughout the workflow, regardless of the channel.
To meet this need, Mediaocean is updating a few terms within Seller workflow to better reflect this evolution to an omnichannel workflow.

Line item grid update for Marketplace
Marketplace available on the line item grid. Marketplace is now available in the line item grid.
