Hundreds of industry executives turned out for yesterday's 5th annual VideoNuze Online Video Ad Summit for a jam-packed day of learning and networking. I'll be posting all of the session video recordings over the next few weeks as soon as they're edited.
Scott Ferber, chairman and CEO of Videology (the Video Ad Summit's Title Partner), kicked off the day with a presentation titled "TV and Video: A Year of Convergence" in which he articulated why convergence is not about "either/or" but rather is about "more" - essentially good news for TV advertising. Scott shared a number of relevant data points supporting the case and then moderated a session which dug deeper into the issues.
For today, I have embedded Scott's slides below, which perfectly set the stage for the Video Ad Summit's program. As you'll see, Scott's "golden rule" for the converging world is "The One with the DATA Rules." This was echoed throughout every session of the day, with participants repeatedly reinforcing this point, while observing a key challenge is distilling the key data that really matters into actionable insights.
I'll have lots more on the Video Ad Summit in the coming weeks. It was an amazing day and I'm incredibly grateful to our 55 executive speakers and 21 sponsors!
