Accelerating TV Tune-In: Using Digital Set-Top-Box Data to Target and Convert Online Audiences

TV networks have limited online targeting options—they lack consumer data that is behavioral, granular, and scalable. New set-top-box based tools have shown success in accurately targeting relevant audiences, as well as creating tune-in lift. Now TV networks can access a scalable, repeatable, and flexible technology to drive value for the business and leverage the online medium in a way that is on par with their information-rich peers on other advertising categories. Justin Evans, Senior Vice President, Emerging Media, Collective, demonstrates the accuracy of set-top-box targeting and its value in generating TV tune-in.

Video Convergence
Balancing the Equation: Performance + Scale + Cost

More consumers are viewing video across multiple screens. The trend may have started several years ago when viewers began to embrace the added flexibility, customization, and choice that online viewing brought to the traditional television experience. Now, however, with the proliferation of smartphones and connected devices, this flexibility has been pushed to new levels. So as consumers drive convergence, we seek to answer, “What’s the equation for success?”
