Tremor Video Inc. Releases Video Predictions 2013

Brands Will Use Online Video Ad Channel in Myriad Ways, From Testing Creative for TV Ads to Ending Gender Stereotypes

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 01/02/13 -- Brands in 2013 will increasingly use digital video advertising to test creative ideas before producing expensive TV commercials, tell more engaging and multichannel stories, and improve the way they measure the effectiveness of their marketing dollars, according to a new report produced by Tremor Video Inc. Moreover, brands will use video metrics to better understand their audience and eventually end the practice of gender stereotyping that has arisen due to comparatively simple TV metrics, the report states.

"Brands in 2013 will create and run multiple ads online, assess which ones people engage with most, and use that insight to decide which creative to use for their TV ads," says Tremor Video CEO Bill Day in his company's Video Predictions 2013 report. "This approach could be used for the Super Bowl, the Oscars, or any large TV media buy where historically there has been a hope and a prayer in terms of the right creative for the right audience. We're starting to see marketers use online video strategy to ensure their bets are the right ones."

With regards to gender stereotyping, Day predicts that marketers this year will use online video to understand who is interested in their products.

In the report's video, Day says:

"Because of the relative simple nature of TV metrics, marketers had to make short-cut assumptions that all men want to look at car ads and women are the ones to target for food and cleaning products. And as we know in today's environment, that's just not true... the opportunity with online video is not to chase gender-stereotypes... but to extend your buying and your understanding. Who better to target your ad to than the people who are leaning forward... and sometimes those people look nothing like the audience you have traditionally assumed is the audience for your product. Done well, online video allows you to not be constrained -- to use a broader approach to reach all those customers, some you've reached traditionally and some you have not, in an effective way."

Tremor Video Inc. is using financial data to predict that more marketers will increase their investments in digital video advertising. The company's revenue from interactive online video ads, which give people the chance to opt in to see more content, nearly doubled from Q1 to Q4 in 2012. At the same time, mobile interactive video units grew: In Q4, 55% of the company's mobile ad revenue came from interactive units, up from 12% in Q1.

The report, consisting of a blog post and video, also predicts that brands and agencies will:

1. View TV and digital video ad channels as complementary. When shooting TV ads, brands and agencies will develop additional content designed specifically for interactive ad units. The power of touch (enabled by myriad touch-screen devices) will join sight, sound and motion as the best ways to engage an audience.

2. Jump on the transmedia bandwagon, following in the footsteps of Hollywood. With the ability to tell stories across myriad platforms, media planners will embrace agnostic planning across all screens. TV and video will rule branding to the detriment of print, outdoor, radio and online display advertising.

3. Diminish the reliance on the decades-old TV metric -- the GRP. In addition to Gross Rating Points, which assess how many times an ad has been shown to a given audience, brands will use online video metrics to arrive at an ERP for their ad campaign. Effective Rating Points, a relatively new industry term, reveal which segments of an ad campaign's broad target audience are engaging with the ads, and if they are watching them to completion.

IoT is rapidly changing the way enterprises are using data to improve business decision-making. In order to derive business value, organizations must unlock insights from the data gathered and then act on these. In their session at @ThingsExpo, Eric Hoffman, Vice President at EastBanc Technologies, and Peter Shashkin, Head of Development Department at EastBanc Technologies, discussed how one organization leveraged IoT, cloud technology and data analysis to improve customer experiences and effi...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...

Big Data engines are powering a lot of service businesses right now. Data is collected from users from wearable technologies, web behaviors, purchase behavior as well as several arbitrary data points we’d never think of. The demand for faster and bigger engines to crunch and serve up the data to services is growing exponentially. You see a LOT of correlation between “Cloud” and “Big Data” but on Big Data and “Hybrid,” where hybrid hosting is the sanest approach to the Big Data Infrastructure pro...

IoT generates lots of temporal data. But how do you unlock its value? You need to discover patterns that are repeatable in vast quantities of data, understand their meaning, and implement scalable monitoring across multiple data streams in order to monetize the discoveries and insights. Motif discovery and deep learning platforms are emerging to visualize sensor data, to search for patterns and to build application that can monitor real time streams efficiently. In his session at @ThingsExpo, ...
Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.
