Videology has released its “2017 TV & Video Outlook,” a series of interviews with ad industry executives from AT&T AdWorks, Bell Media, CNN International, comScore, GroupM, LiveRamp, MediaCom, Nielsen, OMG, Oracle, WhiteOps and others. The executives provide their insights and analysis on TV/video ad convergence, programmatic, targeting/data, mobile, measurement, fraud and lots more.
Reading through the interviews, it’s clear the proliferation of viewing devices and fragmentation of audiences are critical market drivers (no surprise!). That makes efficiently targeting specific audiences with ads, using data and automation a big opportunity. But many of the executives are pragmatic about where data-driven targeting currently stands and what still needs to be done. Overall the tone is both optimistic and realistic.
The 2017 outlook is published in 2 regional versions, one for the North American market and one for the U.K. market. The are both are available for download here.
