Media Summit taster: Videology CEO on programmatic

By AdNews | 26 April 2016

AdNews’ Media Summit kicks off on 19 May with a top line of the industry’s smartest thinkers.

In the clip below you can check out a taster of the Media Summit, with AdNews editor Rosie Baker and Ferber discussing the biggest changes in the digital landscape, including consumer fragmentation, programmatic and creativity, the future of TV and an all-screen trading world.

On the subject of TV Ferber says: “The biggest change and the future of television is that we will no longer look at the TV as a device in the living room or bedroom, but we will refer to TV as the content we consume across multiple devices. So TV will refer to sight, sound and motion creativity.”

The Future of Media

How will media be bought and transacted in the next few years? What will the role of the agency look like in an increasingly data-led automated industry? Does there need to be major change in the structure of how agencies operate?

The Investment Landscape

Where is the money going? Will digital advertising continue its rapid march and displace traditional media as the dominant channel? How is the paid, owned and earned ecosystem evolving and what platforms should brands invest in?

Obsession and Fear = Creative Edge

Is obsession and fear the only way to be truly creative in a digital world? What will be the key to success in creating brilliant creative experiences? How should brands approach the need to be edgy, different, and across new channels?

The Digital Reality Check

The Collision of Digital and Television

Digital is the new television and it wants those TV ad budgets. How will desktop and mobile video challenge the largest screen in the home? Will programmatic software take a hold in the linear television market, and what threat does the SVOD market provide?
