NCS and Nielsen Audio link radio ads to retail sales

The Portable People Meter (PPM) from Nielsen Audio detects inaudible watermarks embedded in the audio portion of a broadcast programme or advert. The PPM tracks what station was heard at what time, and listener information for specific adverts is then linked to frequent shopper data in order to determine how ads have influenced sales.
