As more video content is consumed online, rather than via a traditional TV set, advertisers are following along and looking for new ways to reach viewers as they watch film and TV content on their smartphones, tablets or anything else with an internet connection.
That kind of content delivery — when it bypasses traditional cable and satellite providers — is called “over the top,” or OTT for short, and it’s a fast-growing space for marketers and advertisers. It’s also the subject of the latest episode of our weekly podcast, Marketing Land Live. Our martech reporter, Barry Levine, hosts a conversation with Andre Swanston, co-founder and CEO of Tru Optik, and Campbell Foster, Director of Product Marketing at Adobe, covering topics like
- the current state of the OTT advertising ecosystem
- how ad targeting works in OTT delivery and how differs from web-based targeting
- the current state of ad inventory in OTT delivery
- where the space will be five years from now
This episode runs about 29 minutes. You can listen to it below, and be sure to scroll down for this week’s Show Notes, with links for more information.
Note: As mentioned during the podcast, the next episode of Marketing Land Live should be available the week of November 28. Thanks for listening!
