Programmatic functionality is the foundational “ground floor” for all things Advanced Advertising – and there is little doubt that automating the processes of ad buying and selling, while improving cost efficiencies, are crucial to keeping up with an increasingly complicated and sophisticated set of digitally-infused workflows.  We check in with some of advertising’s leading players to see where things stand in TV’s programmatic evolution, including the potential role of blockchain in enhancing ad transactions.

Panel Discussion: OTT, VOD & Non-Linear TV Advertising
While sports and live events still command sizable linear audiences, the majority of “television” viewing in the US is now comprised of a collective of formerly “alternative” non-linear methods of consumption such as time-shifted DVR, cable VOD, over-the-top streaming, and via digital/mobile devices. What former Discovery Networks founder John Hendricks presaged in 2003 as “file-served television” is now mainstream viewing behavior – traditional TV business models be damned.  Our panel of experts discuss the challenges and opportunities of advertising in the face of this (forever?) changed consumer dynamic.
