PANEL DISCUSSION: AUTOMATING THE PROCESS OF TV ADVETISING

 

While the term “programmatic” still confounds many in the TV/video industry, there is little debate that automating ad buying and selling processes and improving efficiencies are crucial to tackling an increasingly complicated and sophisticated set of digitally-infused workflows. Just exactly when, where and how remain to be seen, as this panel will discuss.

PANEL DISCUSSION: DATA APPLICATIONS & AUDIENCE TARGETING
 

An abundance of first- and third-party data is allowing both advertisers and TV/video content providers to tap into programmatic’s potential by creating more precise marketing target segments – far beyond traditional ratings or demographic reach. This panel will explore how both sides of the advertising equation are retooling their operations for more data-driven value propositions and results.

HOW SLING TV IS INTEGRATING ADDRESABLE AND PROGRAMMATIC INTO LINEAR TELEVISION
 
As the threat of cord cutting and digital streaming escalates, marketers have turned to over-the-top (OTT) services, like Sling TV, to reach audiences in a full screen, brand safe environment regardless of what or where they are watching. As the technology of dynamic ad insertion (DAI) within these platforms has continued to advance, brands are now leveraging the precision of addressable targeting and immediacy of programmatic to capture hard-to-reach audiences across all devices. Adam Lowy, Director of Advanced TV and Digital Sales at DISH Media Sales, will discuss the evolving OTT landscape, and how Sling TV is integrating cross-platform addressable advertising and real-time programmatic bidding into live linear and on-demand television.
