IAB Digital Video Marketplace 2015

IAB Digital Video Marketplace 2015

New York · 06.08.15
Anna Bager at IAB Digital Video Marketplace 2015    The IAB Digital Video Marketplace got off to an enthusiastic start with Anna Bager, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Mobile and Video at IAB, reinforcing how digital video and the myriad of devices on which it is distributed have become the standard for how consumers consume content today. However, while the technology and tools have enabled the rapid growth of the industry, new challenges and opportunities have emerged for scaling video advertising. Bager went on to highlight several recent news items including the launch of the new Buyer’s Board of Advisors for the Digital Video Center of Excellence, the announcement of the IAB Tech Lab taking over management of the ‘Open Video Viewability’ initiative, the release of the Global Mobile Video Study, and the debut of the Advanced TV Industry Primer.


JP Maheu IAB Digital Video Marketplace 2015    Opening the morning discussions was a fireside chat with Jean-Philippe Maheu, Vice President, Global Brands & Agencies at Twitter. He set the stage for the day by discussing how Twitter looks at video. He highlighted the shift being made to mobile video and that 90% of Twitter video views are on mobile devices. Maheu went on to share studies that Twitter has commissioned that showed TV is more engaging with social media, examples of successful lightweight content series on Vine, and why streaming video illustrates the power of Periscope. There has never been a better time to innovate through mobile. Randall Rothenberg, President and CEO of IAB, then joined Maheu on stage and the two discussed the importance of reach, frequency, and engagement as key metrics, and the continued need to measure them across devices. Rothenberg closed the chat by issuing a Twitter challenge to attendees to tweet the best idea for brand or consumer uses of Periscope.


Ashu Garg IAB Digital Video Marketplace 2015    Following Maheu’s chat, Ashu Garg, General Partner, Foundation Capital, took to the stage to frame the current video landscape and forecast what it will look like in the years to come. He highlighted how choice is exploding—consumers chose when they want to watch, where they want to watch, and on what device they want to watch. Linear TV is dying slowly and the shift in dollars spent will transform all advertising. Garg went on to predict that brand advertising will become contextual, real-time, and ROI driven, much like search advertising is today. Additionally all advertising will become bought and sold programmatically, and consumers will continue to make more and more decisions without engaging brands themselves. He closed his talk by encouraging all advertisers to focus on creating personalized quality content as the next step.


Katrina Maureen IAB Digital Video Marketplace 2015    Next up, Katrina Craigwell, Director, Global Content & Programming at GE, and Maureen Polo, General Manager at Fullscreen, discussed how GE worked with Fullscreen to launch a program on YouTube to build a community of science and tech enthusiasts. They shared examples of their three-part “Creator-in-Residence” video series—fiction fast forward, breaking science, and special reports—and talked about how authentic messaging was the key to telling their story and drawing consumers into the brand.


Following a networking refreshment break, participants enjoyed deep-dive workshops dedicated to three topics: How to Optimize for Brand Effectiveness Before & During Your Video Campaign; For Efficient Digital GRPs, Examine Targeting Data Accuracy—A Study of Targeting Accuracy from Leading Vendors; and Making Programmatic Work for Premium Video & TV.


Law Naylor IAB Digital Video Marketplace 2015    The general session reconvened with Michael Law, Executive Vice President, Managing Director, Video Investment at Amplifi, Dentsu Aegis Network, and Peter Naylor, Senior Vice President of Advertising Sales at Hulu, continuing the discussion about the challenges and opportunities in transacting video. Law highlighted how consumers do not discriminate based on where they get their content. As seen in the recent Newfronts and Upfronts, it is all about quality programming. There is no denying that dollars are moving to digital video and, in the eyes of the consumer, “premium” means different things to everyone because viewers chose what they want to watch. It ultimately comes down to how consumers define quality.


Video Viewability IAB Digital Video Marketplace 2015    The challenging topic of video measurement was tackled next. Jonathan Hsia, Managing Partner, Digital Investment Lead at Mindshare North America; Cortney Henseler, Director of Consumer Analytics & Research at AOL; Sean Coar, Group Vice President, Strategy & Business Decisions at Time Warner Cable; and Peter Chelala, Vice President, Mobile and Video Advertising Sales at Viacom, each gave their perspectives on quantifying video success and what else is needed to measure viewer behavior. They touched on topics such as understanding what constitutes a video impression, defining attention and how it impacts ad recall, and knowing what your consumer is doing.


Tal IAB Digital Video Marketplace 2015    Following a networking luncheon, participants broke up into deep-dive tracks dedicated to Quality Inventory in Digital Video, Creativity and Technology in the Video Marketplace, and Cross-Platform Best Practices. The group then reconvened in the main ballroom for a presentation from Tal Chalozin, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer at Innovid, about video creative and the best practices leading the market. Chalozin cited a number of statistics and shared creative that illustrated how important it is to make video more relevant to the device and consumer. He closed by imparting three takeaways to the audience about designing effective video creative: 1) Encourage participation, 2) Use smart storytelling, and 3) Think about responsive design—adaptive vs. optimized.


Lebowitz IAB Digital Video Marketplace 2015    Continuing on the theme of effective video creative, Michael Lebowitz, Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Big Spaceship, came on stage next to discuss what works and why in the evolving world of video. He emphasized the most important dimension of what can make video “digital” today—interactivity—and went on to share how the award winning Ken Burns iPad app was built to accomplish that. The key to the successful design was to create a system that felt native to the content and the device, ultimately removing friction and allowing the consumer to truly engage on their own terms.


VICE IAB Digital Video Marketplace 2015    After Lebowitz’s talk, Spencer Baim, Chief Strategic Officer at VICE Media, and Mike Germano, Chief Digital Officer at VICE Media, shared how VICE has been changing the way they create and distribute content over the years. While the content and distribution channels have been evolving, VICE has remained true to its authenticity with news and finding the best experience for each screen. Baim and Germano encouraged the audience to take note of how they have found ways to syndicate content in a variety of ways to tell the richest story possible, even when it was not the norm. With content everywhere, all the time, it is important to take the consumer on a journey, not just one stop, and to think about where you are going to take them and why they want to come.


Refinery29 IAB Digital Video Marketplace 2015    Closing out the keynotes for the day was a case study on Samsung’s Virtual Reality campaign with Refinery29. Melissa Goidel, Chief Revenue Officer at Refinery29, and Jim Willson, Director, Immersive Products & Virtual Reality at Samsung Electronics America, shared how they empowered and informed a new generation of female leaders and doers who have enormous influence on the world around us. Before embarking on their campaign they studied their female audience and ultimately tapped into their lust for technology. With 24/7 content speaking to all 360 degrees of their lives, the campaign’s rich content was ideal for a device and platform that connected its audience to an immersive experience.


The conference came to a close with participants breaking out into town hall conversations for an opportunity to engage one another in spirited discussion and debate while enjoying drinks. The hot topics addressed were exponential consumer attention and new video formats.
