Dubbed a visionary by many of his colleagues, Bill Harvey has helped spur the communications industry to a number of positive changes involving information and new technologies for over 3 decades. His company Next Century Media (“NCM”) introduced set-top box measurement, addressable commercials, data-driven program recommenders, and programmatic buying with the Opti*Mark addressable optimizer, which simultaneously increases the value for both buyer and seller. NCM licensed IP to the next company Bill founded, TRA (now called TiVo Research), the first to do massive same-household matching of media and purchase data, for which Bill has received four U.S. patents. TRA was acquired by TiVo in 2012.

Bill Harvey Consulting advises most of the major advertisers, agencies, media, and research companies of the world.

In 2015 NCM licensed other IP to help start Bill’s newest company, Research Measurement Technologies (“RMT”), with top talents from across the industry. With its proprietary technology, and the array of data available, RMT is working with top advertisers, agencies, television networks and others to grow the present programmatic buying industry to one that can optimize ROI with continuous machine learning, considering not only media variables but also creative ones. In Hollywood, RMT’s technology is being used to aid development and maintenance of series, and, more recently, for scheduling optimization and recommendation.
