  • Deep Dive Into Programmatic Video Advertising [AD SUMMIT VIDEO]

    eMarketer is forecasting that mobile video advertising will nearly quadruple in size from $1.44 billion in 2014 to $5.44 billion in 2018.

  • Follow Tomorrow's Video Ad Summit on Twitter

    Tomorrow's VideoNuze Online Video Advertising Summit promises to be a premier day of learning and networking for 400+ industry executives already registered. We have 45 industry leaders on 14 different sessions spanning all of the hottest online video ad industry topics (for more, see full program here). On a personal level, I'm looking forward to seeing lots of familiar industry colleagues and meeting many new ones.

    For those that are unable to attend, plan to follow all of the action on Twitter at #VideoAdSummit, which will also be embedded on VideoNuze. For the first time, I'm bringing in a dedicated social media expert, Steve Safran, who will be tweeting all of the day's most important nuggets. In the past, when I've been unable to attend others' conferences I've wanted to, I've found that a high-impact twitter stream is the next best thing to being there. I hope you'll agree.

    And, if you're still considering attending, I'm keeping registration open until 6pm tonight.

    The Ad Summit is generously supported by 18  industry companies including Title Partners Tremor Video and ILoveVideo.tv/Castaclip; Premier Partner AOL, Headline Partners ActiveVideo, Alphonso, Brightcove, Eyeview, FreeWheel, LiveRail, Sizmek, TubeMogul, Turn and Videology plus Branding Partners Beachfront Media, Innovid, Mixpo, Optimatic and SpotXchange.

  • Twitter's SnappyTV Deal is All About "Winning the Moments That Matter"

    In case you missed it, last Thursday Twitter acquired SnappyTV, a cloud-based video platform that allows content providers and brands to quickly create clips from live video and then distribute them through social media. It's a highly strategic deal for Twitter, further positioning the company to "win the moments that matter" for both audience and monetization.

    "Win the moments that matter" is a phrase I first heard from YouTube executives a couple of years ago and it has great relevance for the Twitter-SnappyTV deal. The massive trends around mobile devices, social media, content syndication and video have created a sweet spot for TV networks and rights-holders to drive huge traffic spikes by making highly newsworthy moments readily available to fans.

  • Two New Reports Reveal In-Depth Dynamics of Video Ad Market

    Recently released data from online video ad platforms Videology and LiveRail reveal in-depth dynamics of the fast-moving online video ad industry.

    First, in an analysis of 2.4 billion video impressions Videology delivered in Q1 '14, it found that 91% of advertisers bought video ads based on a guaranteed CPM (cost per impression), similar to how traditional TV advertising is bought. This was an increase of 6% vs. Q4 '13.

    The desktop still dominates for online video ad campaigns, as 78% were for desktop-only, followed by 10% for desktop plus mobile, 6% for desktop/mobile/connected TV, 5% for mobile only and 1% for other connected TV. Videology found that 35% of campaign used some type of 3rd-party verification, including Nielsen's OCR or comScore's vCE.

  • VideoNuze Podcast #230: Crackle, HuffPost Live and Online Video Ad Growth Ahead

    I'm pleased to present the 230th edition of the VideoNuze podcast with my weekly partner Colin Dixon of nScreenMedia.

    This week found Colin at the BroadbandTV Con event in Santa Clara where he was impressed by the 2 keynotes, by Eric Berger, EVP, Digital Networks, Sony Pictures Television (Crackle) and Roy Sekoff, President and Co-Creator of HuffPost Live. Eric and Roy provided insights about their strategies and the audiences they're pursuing. Both services are highly successful in their own ways. Colin shares his observations, and compares and contrasts the two.

    One commonality is that both services are free to viewers and ad-supported, which brings us to our next topic, PwC's growth forecast for online video advertising, which I covered this week. We dig into the details and other PwC numbers. Even though PwC projects video ad spending will more than double, to $6.8 billion in 2018, Colin actually believes the forecast is too conservative. He explains why and what would really impress him.

  • Perspective What's this? Dark Matter: Shining a Light on Programmatic Video

    We've all heard the good news: programmatic video is growing fast. New reports showing ambitious predictions are great clickbait fodder for the trade press and all of us video adtech people are happy to bask in these figures.This mojo, however, has been threatened by a raft of publicity around fraudulent traffic being a large part of that growth. And by large part we mean up to 70%. Some of the most important players in the industry, such as TubeMogul, Tremor and Vindico have ramped up their efforts in order to combat fraud but there is a lot more work to do yet.

  • VideoNuze Podcast #227 - Why Dynamic Ad Insertion in VOD/TVE is a Game-Changer

    I'm pleased to present the 227th edition of the VideoNuze podcast with my weekly partner Colin Dixon of nScreenMedia.

    This week we dig into the Turner-Comcast deal from earlier this week, under which Turner is providing past seasons' and full current season's episodes to some of its most popular programs to Comcast for viewing on VOD and TV Everywhere.  As I wrote earlier this week, a key enabler of the deal is Turner's ability to dynamically insert ads in the on-demand streams.

    Colin and I agree that, to the extent the deal becomes a template for others, it could have a wide-ranging impact on the ecosystem. To date, Netflix and other OTT providers have been able to aggregate huge libraries of past seasons' episodes, which have fueled binge-viewing.

    But as advertising in VOD/TVE grows and improves, it could become the financial foundation for operators to gain far greater content rights. That in turn could change the negotiating balance for content and perceptions of pay-TV operators. Colin and I explain what could be ahead.

  • Uncovering the Secrets to Why Video Ads Go Viral

    The holy grail for marketers these days is having a video ad go viral. Not only does it provide the brand an enormous amount of free exposure, it also gives the team behind the ad major resume points for having "cracked the code" on making an ad a viral hit. However, the odds of an ad actually going viral are extremely long.

    That's why a presentation I attended during IAB's NewFronts Insight Lunch last week, by Richard Kosinski, president of Unruly, really caught my attention. Unruly is a platform for social video marketing that helps agencies and advertisers get their videos watched and shared. Richard shared highlights of a new white paper, "The Science of Sharing 2014," which looked at the social performance of 14 different ads from Super Bowl XLVIII.

  • Dynamic Ad Insertion Helps Clinch New Turner-Comcast VOD/TVE Deal

    Turner Broadcasting will provide Comcast with VOD and TV Everywhere access for some of its most popular programs across all of its cable networks, under a deal announced this morning. A significant aspect of the deal is that it gives Comcast rights not only to past seasons' episodes, but also to all current season episodes - what's known as "stacking rights." The deal is a big win for Comcast and also underscores the emergence of dynamic ad insertion in VOD/TVE streams as an important new revenue driver.
