comScore announced that it has completed a merger with Rentrak and that the two are now one as the "new comScore".

What does this mean? According to comScore, it means "a new model for a dynamic, cross-platform world."

The company says it will use massive data scale to establish "new currencies" for understanding consumers' multiscreen behavior, and provide a more precise understanding of brand and consumer behavior.

"We have heard from our clients and stakeholders across the industry, and the message has been very clear: measurement needs to evolve," a spokesperson said in an email. "With a spirit of innovation, determination and collaboration, our promise as the new comScore is that we will work swiftly to advance our industry."

"We will provide a new model of measurement for the cross-platform world; one that is not merely evolutionary, but revolutionary," they added. "It will be precise in answering your most detailed questions and unified in a way that takes the pain out of quantifying behavior across screens. Working with our partners we will extend our model to countries across the world, measuring audiences everywhere.
