54% of CMOs Supplement TV Ads with Digital Video

54% of CMOs Supplement TV Ads with Digital Video.

The CMO Club and Simulmedia have released the report “The Future of TV and Digital Video.” It’s the result of a survey of more than 80 senior marketers. Over half (54 percent) said they use digital video to supplement TV as a holistic strategy, but only 31%align their budgets for TV and digital advertising spend. This separation leads to a disconnect between the value of each medium, as just over half (52%) claim that they have different expectations across the two platforms. In addition, 75% of CMOs say that they measure reach the same way for both TV and digital video and but only one-third see Nielsen as the ongoing foundation of their reach metrics.

“CMOs say they want a holistic strategy, but neither plan, measure or budget for it as one thing,” says David Cooperstein, CMO at Simulmedia and author of the report.

Other findings:
* In the past three years, digital spend has gone from 10%of advertising budgets to 24% and is forecast to rise to 36%in the next three years.

“For over a decade, marketers have attempted to find the most efficient balance between TV and digital video spend,” says Pete Krainik, Founder of The CMO Club. “Our report shows that it’s not TV vs. digital video, it’s about TV and digital video, both today and for the foreseeable future.”

*In the US, digital video advertising expenditures are exploding. Figures from eMarketer show that digital video ad spending is estimated at $6 billion this year, growing around 42% annually. However, the actual dollars spent in TV still greatly trumps digital video. TV advertising dollars in the US were approximately $76 billion in 2014 and still growing by a smidgen more than 3% annually. While both will continue to grow, TV will continue to add more raw dollars of advertising than digital video will, particularly during pivotal political and Olympics years.

“Digital depth cannot match TV’s breadth. Nor should it. Conversely, TV has not historically been as measurable or personalized, so it cannot perform the magic that digital delivers. In that very unique way, TV and digital do not compete, they complement. The winning combination is the joint approach. TV’s reach and digital’s depth make them amazing partners in the marketing mix,” says Cooperstein.

Changing TV Industry Leads Nielsen to Acquire Exelate

Changing TV Industry Leads Nielsen to Acquire Exelate | Digital – Advertising Age.http://blogs.wsj.com/cmo/2015/03/04/nielsen-to-acquire-data-specialist-exelate/

Nielsen has acquired data management player Exelate. The deal price was approximately $200 million, according to The Wall Street Journal.

In an interview with the Journal, Nielsen president Steve Hasker indicated his company anticipates TV ad sales moving towards a more automated future.

While programmatic ad-buying at the moment is largely a feature of the online advertising world, Mr. Hasker said he wants Nielsen to be ready if and when it moves into the $70-billion U.S. television advertising market.

“If and when” TV gets there, the digitally-focused Exelate can help Nielsen maintain its data dominance in such a world. Television ads today are still largely brought on a reach and frequency basis, which is why Nielsen’s ratings and research matter to brands trying to gauge the impact of their ads.

But if TV ads begin selling in a manner that more closely resembles digital, where ads can be served to individuals based on their interests, then Nielsen would face a major challenge to its core business.

Programmatic advertising was one of the three emerging areas the company said it was looking to tackle in a December interview with Ad Age, along with wearables and in-car viewing.

Within the ad industry, it’s widely believed that automated TV buying is at least a year or two away from reaching a meaningful level of activity

Exelate’s business has two main parts: The first is what the company calls a data exchange, or data marketplace, where it accumulates data from around 200 data sources and makes it available to advertisers and advertising technology companies to help them better target their advertising. This data is gathered primarily through “cookies” that eXelate drops on people’s Internet browsers and uses to track their online behaviors.

“We work with online publishers to find purchase intent, such as the fact that someone might be in the market for an airline ticket based on some of their behavior online, or might be interested in a flat screen television based on online behavior that we have seen across the internet,” said Mark Zagorski, CEO of eXelate.

The second part of the business is a data management platform, or DMP, that holds large stores of data and organizes them in ways that can be used for advertisers and online publishers.

Children are ditching TV in favour of the iPad to watch shows | Daily Mail Online

Children are ditching TV in favour of the iPad to watch shows | Daily Mail Online.

  • Six in ten children use a tablet at home – a 50 per cent increase on 2013 
  • Meanwhile, televisions in their rooms have fallen by a third in five years
  • 11 per cent of children aged three and four now have their own tablet
  • Fewer children also have games consoles in rooms as tablets take over
  • Study on UK children was carried out by London-based regulator, Ofcom

Tablets are now more important to children than their TVs, with more than one-third of young people aged five to 15 owning their own device. Around 34 per cent of children in this category own their own tablet, which is up from 19 per cent last year, according to official figures.  And six in ten children use a tablet at home – a 50 per cent increase on 2013 – while the number of children with televisions in their rooms has fallen by a third in five years.

The rapid increase means that some preschoolers are using a tablet to surf the web, play games and watch video clips.

The report by UK regulator Ofcom found that 11 per cent of children aged three and four have their own tablet, up from three per cent last year.

The number of five to 15-year-olds who use a tablet to go online has doubled to 42 per cent since last year, while the proportion of children using the internet via a PC or laptop fell for the first time, by three per cent, to 88 per cent.

As well as replacing TVs, fewer children also have games consoles in their bedrooms as tablets take over the role.

The number who have radios in the bedroom has halved from 32 per cent in 2009.

Meanwhile, 20 per cent of children are watching TV on a tablet 33 per cent watch on-demand TV.

The report also revealed that girls prefer more ‘sociable’ media, sending more texts and making more mobile calls than boys, during a typical week

Almost half of older girls claim that a mobile phone is the device they would most miss, compared to 29 per cent of older boys.

But girls and boys aged 12 to 15 are equally active on social media, with 71 per cent having a profile.

That said, girls are more likely to use Instagram, Snapchat and Tumblr.

Just one social media site – YouTube – attracts more boys, who are nearly twice as likely as girls aged 12 to 15 to use it.

Ofcom said nine in 10 parents whose children go online were taking steps to help their children manage risks when using the internet.

The most popular methods included supervising their children online, talking to children about managing online risks and having rules in place about use of the internet.

Separate research earlier this week found that the iPad has now overtaken household names such as McDonalds and Disney to become the number one brand among American 6 and 12-year-olds.

The annual study, conducted by research firm Smarty Pants, ranks more than 250 brands each year.

‘iPad’s number one status among kids represents the culmination of the ‘tablet takeover’ – a movement from shared screens and TV network dominance to curated content on personal devices,’ said Wynne Tyree, president of Smarty Pants.

‘Kids increasingly turn to iPad for games, TV shows, videos, books, homework help and communicating with friends and family.’

“La télé ? Un iPad géant où Netflix, beIN Sports et Canal+ se battent pour votre temps” – Le Point

Source: AFP

“La télé ? Un iPad géant où Netflix, beIN Sports et Canal+ se battent pour votre temps” – Le Point.

Le patron et fondateur de Netflix, qui lance sa plateforme de vidéos illimitées en France ce lundi, raconte la télévision de demain. Interview.

“Imaginez la télévision comme un iPad géant où les applications Netflix, beIN Sports et Canal+ se battent pour votre temps”, raconte le patron et fondateur de l’américain Netflix Reed Hastingsqui lance sa plateforme de vidéos illimitées lundi en France, avant cinq autres pays européens cette semaine.

Quel est votre objectif sur le marché français ? Ne risque-t-il pas d’y avoir une déception pour ceux qui s’attendent à trouver sur Netflix des films récents ?

Reed Hastings : Sur le long terme, dans cinq à dix ans, nous visons un tiers des foyers français abonnés à Netflix, comme c’est le cas aux États-Unis. Mais à court terme, durant la première année, la réputation sera notre priorité. Arriverons-nous à avoir une bonne réputation auprès des utilisateurs français grâce au service que nous offrons ? Le travail sur la plateforme, la qualité et la définition, la sélection, la facilité d’utilisation… La clé d’un succès sur le long terme, c’est la première année. Sans se focaliser sur le nombre d’abonnés, mais sur leur satisfaction. Sur Netflix, nous proposons des nouvelles séries originales et en provenance du monde entier, mais, en France, nous sommes tenus par la chronologie des médias (qui empêche les services de vidéo à la demande par abonnement, comme Netflix, de diffuser des films sortis au cinéma il y a moins de 36 mois, NDLR) qui nous empêche d’avoir des films récents. Il n’y a rien que nous puissions y faire. Les gens veulent avoir accès à tout, mais chaque pays a ses propres lois. En Belgique, en Allemagne ou aux Pays-Bas, nous pouvons diffuser des films récents. Je ne pense pas que nous aurons un jour un impact sur la chronologie des médias, seuls les consommateurs français pourront un jour en avoir un. Le danger, c’est que, sans cette évolution, le piratage va continuer de croître. Au Canada, depuis notre arrivée, nous avons observé une baisse du piratage, comme sur BitTorrent, qui est passé de 30 % à 10 % du trafic sur Internet. Le piratage est notre plus grand concurrent.

Après cette étape d’expansion européenne, quels sont les plans pour Netflix ? Pour maintenir vos prix bas, ne devez-vous pas accroître en permanence le nombre de vos utilisateurs ?

Cette semaine, nous allons lancer Netflix en Allemagne, en Belgique, en Suisse, en Autriche et au Luxembourg. L’année prochaine, nous allons probablement continuer à nous étendre en Europe. Nous allons aussi commencer à regarder le marché asiatique. Nous voulons que Netflix soit disponible pour tout un chacun, partout dans le monde. Quand nous produisons une série comme Marseille (la série française attendue pour 2015, NDLR) ou Orange Is the New Black, ça devient accessible à tout le monde au même moment. Il n’y a pas de chronologie des médias ou de fenêtre diffusion avec nos propres séries. C’est vrai qu’avec nos prix bas nous devons continuer de nous développer. C’est pourquoi nous nous concentrons là-dessus. Et avec nos prix bas et le mois d’essai gratuit, tout le monde peut nous rejoindre facilement.

Quelle est votre vision de la télévision du futur ? Les cinémas existeront-ils encore dans 20 ans ?

Oui. Je pense que les cinémas sont comme les restaurants : un endroit où aller pour s’amuser. Vous pouvez toujours cuisiner à la maison, mais vous aimez sortir aussi ! Aller dans un cinéma est une vraie expérience, c’est un endroit fabuleux pour se détendre, tout comme les restaurants. À la maison, imaginez la télévision comme un iPad géant où les applications Netflix, beIN Sports et Canal+ se battent pour votre temps, innovent et sont régulièrement mises à jour, comme les applications sur votre téléphone. Téléphones, tablettes et télévisions : trois écrans, mais avec un seul usage et des applications.


Influencia – Twitter influence-t-il vraiment la consommation TV ? lmpact réciproque d’un trend Twitter sur l’audience d’un programme

Influencia – Twitter influence-t-il vraiment la consommation TV ?.

Résaux sociaux, acceptez-vous de prendre pour époux les programmes TV ici présents, pour le meilleur et sans le pire ? Faites sonner les cloches, voler le riz et chanter les glottes, vive les mariés ! Sans attendre neuf mois, l’union a accouché d’un phénomène en passe de modifier notre consommation télévisuelle à la racine. Depuis deux ans INfluencia analyse le phénomène, ses nouveaux outils et ses conséquences. En juin 2013, nous passions à la loupe les résultats d’une nouvelle étude de BI Intelligence, qui confirme l’avènement de la TV sociale. Mais une question restait sans réponse analytique : le tweet fait-il l’audience ou bien est-ce le programme qui fait le tweet ? Les deux, répond une nouvelle étude indépendante de Nielsen.

Pour la première fois, un rapport apporte des preuves statistiques sur l’impact réciproque d’un trend Twitter sur l’audience d’un programme. Les deux sont donc interdépendants. L’étude deNielsen est partie d’une ambition initiale : déterminer si l’activité sur le réseau de micro-blogging améliorait l’attractivité d’un contenu en cours ou si au contraire, c’est la popularité du programme qui suscite plus de conversations sur Twitter.

Pour dessiner des cadres de réponses statistiques, Nielsen a analysé minute par minute l’audience et le flux social générés par 221 programmes de primetime, grâce à sa plate-formeSocialGuide : sur 48% des émissions, l’audimat se révèle être d’une influence notable sur le nombre de tweets concernant le programme. Autre constat intéressant, le volume de tweets provoque des changements significatifs sur l’audimat pour 29% des contenus étudiés.

SEEiT, l’outil qui corrobore

« Nous avons constaté un lien de cause à effet significatif indiquant qu’une poussée d’audimat sur un programme TV peut sensiblement accroître le volume de tweets. Mais il est aussi intéressant de constater que l’inverse est également vrai, commente dans un communiqué publié sur le site de Nielsen son directeur de recherches Paul Donato. Cette approche rigoureuse d’une analyse statistique fournit à nos clients et aux médias une meilleure compréhension de l’interaction entre Twitter et l’audience TV. »

Pour pointer sa loupe analytique encore plus près du phénomène, l’étude s’est carrément attardée sur les impacts réciproques par style de programme. Nous apprenons donc que l’influence de la conversation dans le nid de l’oiseau bleu diffère en fonction du genre. Le champion de l’impact par tweet est la télé réalité (44%), devant la comédie (37%), le sport (28%) et le drame (18%). « Les groupes de médias et les annonceurs ont déjà investi dans la capacité d’audience des médias sociaux, qui leur permettent un engagement plus direct avec les consommateurs. Quantifier la relation entre la télévision et l’activité sociale est pour eux primordial », assure Paul Donato. C’est dans cet esprit que Comcast a lancé SEEiT il y a quelques mois. Cette plate-forme en cloud relie directement le buzz social àu programme TV qui le génère. Les premières données confirment les constats de Nielsen : plus de 50% des gens qui interagissent avec SEEiT via Twitter regardent ou enregistrent une émission dans la foulée.

RTL Group Acquires $144M Stake In Video SSP SpotXchange

RTL Group Acquires $144M Stake In Video SSP SpotXchange.

Updated with additional comment from SpotXchange CEO Mike Shehan and RTL.

European entertainment network RTL Group announced Thursday it will acquire a 65% stake worth $144 million in video supply-side platform and programmatic marketplace SpotXchange.

Depending on the performance of the company, RTL could acquire additional stake in the company through the terms of an earn-out agreement. Read the press release.

The deal comes weeks after Facebook acquired competing sell-side video advertising platform LiveRail, underscoring the race to acquire a piece of the programmatic video pie.

In a recent interview, SpotXchange founder and CEO Mike Shehan alluded to the company’s future as a standalone sell-side video platform — or not. “If we considered strategic partnerships, it would be in a form that would allow us to pursue our vision on the supply side and continue to offer our services so as not to conflict with the buy side,” he told AdExchanger.

According to Shehan, “Instead of selling to a major US technology company, and becoming one feature in a giant ad tech stack, we’ve taken a route that will allow us to operate independently while becoming a core part of RTL’s global business and strategy.”

Elaborating for AdExchanger about the deal, Shehan said, “We honestly [didn’t] think there [were] many, if any, other companies that would help SpotXchange achieve its goals of successfully penetrating each and every European market…RTL is twice the size of Yahoo and four times the size of AOL.”

The deal is inherently about owning the content, distribution and delivery method while simultaneously allowing the publisher to monetize those assets.

Through the terms of the deal, RTL will appoint three members to the company’s board, while Shehan and Steve Swoboda, founder, COO and CFO, will continue to manage the day-to-day operations of the company, according to the release.

“Video is going to be the battleground between the traditional TV companies and the digital companies,” said Dave Morgan, founder and CEO of Simulmedia. “Display and search weren’t because those were largely the businesses the print companies had. Print companies lost that battle in users. But the TV companies haven’t. The TV company viewership is strong and they have really robust balance sheets.”

RTL Group is an $8 billion-TV, broadcasting and cable conglomerate owned by German media company Bertelsmann. Some might know RTL for its content production division, FremantleMedia, which distributes such popular titles as The X Factor and American Idol. RTL operates 54 TV channels and 27 radio stations.

The SpotXchange investment is not the company’s first foray into digital video monetization. RTL last June entered into a strategic partnership with BroadbandTV, a tool that helps media companies monetize videos containing their IP which are uploaded to YouTube.

According to Sorosh Tavakoli, founder and CEO of European video ads platform Videoplaza, “RTL knows programmatic trading will be important for the TV advertising market in the future and it’s clear they wouldn’t want that market developing without their participation.”

SpotXchange helps publishers ranging from Hearst to Mail Online and News Distribution Network monetize. The company’s goal is to provide “holistic yield management,” in Shehan’s words, to manage all opportunities from direct-sold to programmatic.

This deal, in Tavakoli’s view, is about “RTL future-proofing themselves for when programmatic trading becomes a reality for broadcasters. The SpotXchange acquisition will allow RTL to tap into the mid-and-long tail part of the market, complementing their strong position in premium.”

Other industry insiders agreed.

“Digital video is an entirely different ecosystem than traditional TV,” commented Scott Ferber, chairman and CEO of Videology. “To play big in the future of TV, TV companies need to buy, build, or partner to obtain digital video technology. RTL is a great ‘TV-plus’ media company who has a lot to gain (or lose) from TV and digital convergence.”

In response to SpotXchange’s future autonomy for existing publisher clients, RTL provided this comment for AdExchanger: “RTL Group is and always has been a decentralized company and we have a proven track record in demonstrating that our businesses are run autonomously. We do believe that SpotXchange will benefit from RTL Group’s operations and vice versa…we will invest to grow SpotXchange’s business development resource to help forge strategic partnerships with rights owners and continue the investment in the best-in-class technology platform and partner support team.”

AT Internet lance une offre de tracking TV to Web – Offremedia

AT Internet lance une offre de tracking TV to Web – Offremedia.


Le 13/05/2014


AT Internet lance une solution d’analyse en temps réel des effets de la publicité TV sur les autres écrans. Son objectif est de détecter le trafic web généré par la campagne TV, d’identifier la source de trafic (SEO, accès directs…), de mesurer les re-visites (ultérieures à la diffusion du spot) et de qualifier les internautes en termes socio-démographiques.
Outre une mesure du ROI, à travers les conversions générées sur le site web, l’outil permet d’identifier les combinaisons «spot/chaîne/heure» les plus efficaces.
La technologie est basée sur une reconnaissance du flux audio/vidéo via un système de fingerprinting et l’intégration simultanée d’un tag. La solution est disponible pour un univers de 33 chaînes suivies en France.
Les annonceurs ont accès à des tableaux de bord synthétiques : volumétries d’audiences qualifiées par cible (CSP, âge, centres d’intérêts…), taux de conversion, mesure des visiteurs suivant la diffusion du spot TV… Les performances sont comparées à des benchmarks hors campagne TV, afin de déterminer l’impact réel de la campagne TV. La solution est disponible en France, Allemagne, Espagne, Italie et au Royaume-Uni, et sera lancée aux USA et au Brésil.
AT Internet présente cette solution à travers une infographie prenant en exemple la Coupe du monde de football, un événement majeur pour le tracking TV et la mesure du drive-to-web.


Social has made TV cool again

Is The Future Of Television Social?.

Today at the Brand Innovators’ Future of Television conference in New York, social media expert Ted Rubin will be sharing his perspective on the symbiotic relationship between TV and social media. In advance of his remarks I had a conversation with Rubin on his thoughts about why the two subjects are intertwined.

According to Rubin, TV won’t be going away anytime soon. “I think social people were talking about how social was going to kill TV. I think social has revived TV. I think social has made TV cool again, and it will continue to do so because of all the sharing that’s going on. TV has suddenly become interactive in many ways. You’re not a loser anymore staying home watching TV by yourself because you’re not at home by yourself anymore. For example, men tend to communicate a little bit more via social media during sports, and I think that social is enhancing sports viewing via TV to a tremendous degree.”

Ted Rubin

“Reality shows have done a tremendous job because it’s such an opinionated and a sharable experience versus watching a [scripted] TV show. Reality TV lends itself so perfectly to social because it’s about people. Most [reality shows] tend to be competitions. They’ve done a tremendous job integrating social.  We’re just scratching the surface because the technologies have to start connecting with each other. I also think that companies are getting used to allowing these conversations to go on around their brands. Not [only] do they allow it, but they are encouraging it and empowering it.”

9 mois après le SRP (by Havas Media) – Médiamétrie et Twitter vont mesurer les tweets liés aux émissions TV

Médiamétrie et Twitter vont mesurer les tweets liés aux émissions TV.

Médiamétrie et Twitter s’associent pour lancer l’année prochaine un outil de mesure d’audience des tweets émis en lien avec un programme de télévision, ont annoncé mardi les deux sociétés. Baptisé “Médiamétrie Twitter TV Ratings”, cet outil destiné aux chaînes de télévision, aux agences médias ou aux acteurs de l’audiovisuel permettra d’obtenir “le nombre de tweets par émission”, mais aussi “le nombre de personnes (comptes) qui ont vu les tweets à propos d’une émission TV”, selon le communiqué. “Avec Twitter, nous allons aider les médias à mieux mesurer et comprendre les nouvelles formes d’interaction des téléspectateurs internautes avec les émissions TV”, a commenté Julien Rosanvallon, le directeur du département télévision de Médiamétrie. Pour Justine Ryst, directrice du développement de Twitter France, “cet outil de mesure indépendant permettra ainsi aux diffuseurs et aux annonceurs de quantifier et d’évaluer le niveau d’engagement des émissions télévisées”. Twitter a déjà mis en place un partenariat similaire aux Etats-Unis avec le cabinet Nielsen pour mesurer l’engagement social autour des émissions de télévision américaines.
