Television Audience Measurement systems quantify and qualify the viewing of television programs and commercial breaks. Television stations require TAM data in order to develop their programming and broadcasting strategies. Advertisers and their agencies require TAM information in order to evaluate and maximise the effectiveness of their investment in the purchase of TV commercials.
