Making Good Sense & Driving Big Business Out of Digital Video
Defining Video for the Digital Age

The video landscape has always been complex and the proliferation of IP-infused devices in offices, living rooms and pockets doesn’t simplify matters.

When we talk about “digital” video, what do we really mean? Are we talking pipes, screens, a specific consumer experience? How can brands, content creators, content owners and technology providers make good sense and big business out of this landscape?

With one eye on what’s now and one eye on what’s next, industry thought leaders breaks down the video marketplace, setting a framework for the day.

Now, video advertising exchanges are aggregating massive pools of supply and providing advertisers greater transparency than ever before. Best of all, these auction-based exchanges ensure buyers pay just what the inventory is worth.

The What, Why, and WOW of ENGAGEMENT

In case you didn’t hear, Tremor Media publicly thanked Hulu “for drawing big brands out of the box and onto the Web.” They even went so far as to say, “We’ll take it from here.” Where’s here? It’s just an awesome place called Engagement, and it’s where everyone wants to be. Many claim they know the way to engagement, but it’s very hard to get there and even harder to quantify. Tremor Media will show you what's most important when it comes to building engaging video ads, buying media, and evaluating success of your ad spend.

YouTube as the New Campfire: Creative Storytelling in the Digital Age

Since the beginning of time, humans have connected through stories and in the past five years, YouTube has emerged as one of the most engaging and powerful storytelling platforms in existence. From the entertaining (Double Rainbow, JK Wedding Dance) to the political (Neda’s story) to the inspiring (the Fully Sick Rapper), the stories that have been told on YouTube are part of our cultural narrative. YouTube is the modern day campfire, allowing people and brands a platform for creative self-expression and social connectivity through video story-telling.

The Future of TV

There have been a lot of discussions around the so-called trend of “cord-cutting,” or consumers dropping their cable plans in favor of online video. Whether that’s true or not, it’s clear that cable companies and broadcasters are racing to make their video content available online – yet few have figured out how to monetize video online effectively. Learn how cable companies are not only increasing viewership of their online video content, but how they are able to monetize it with next-generation, in-stream advertising.
