Multichannel News covered this morning's NYC Television Week panel, "Will Programmatic TV Automate the Future of Advertising?"
The Drum, this week, posted an article titled Unlocking the Success of Programmatic Trading, in which author Jessica Davies unpacks the state of programmatic media buying as it is today, and delves deeper into some of the issues brands advertisers must address in 2014 if they want to acheive the same success that DR advertisers have had in the programmatic space. Davies writes:
Nielsen today announced the launch of Local Buyer Reach, a new data-set for local TV, that will connect TV viewership data with both online and offline consumer transactions. This will allow TV stations to better understand the characteristics of their audience, and demonstrate that to advertisers.
A post in MediaWeek the other day extolled the benefits of programmatic media buying, but made sure to emphasize the importance of growing smarter, and not just larger when it comes to Big Data. Author Dominic Joseph, of online search retargeting firm Captify, argues that focusing on the more granular data—the kind that creates audiences rather than demographics—will ultimately lead to a more successful and more "mature" programmatic ad buy.
AudienceXpress General Manager, Walt Horstman, appeared on a panel at December's TV of Tomorrow (TVOT) show: "TV Advertising 2.0 is Here: Is the Industry Ready?" Walt discussed programmatic TV buying, Big Data, and TV audience buying on a panel with IPG/Magna's Matt Bayer, Adap.TV's Christophe Gillet, CIMM's Jane Clarke, Canoe's Chris Pizzurro, and Disney/ABC's Rick Mandler.
This Sunday is Super Bowl Sunday in New York, and Kirk McDonald’s article in AdWeek last week projected into Super Bowl Sunday 2020, when the author’s beloved New York Jets will once again reclaim the Super Bowl glory that was theirs in 1968, and all Super Bowl ads will be programmatic.
