Thought Leadership Roundtable – Is Advanced TV Ready for Prime Time?

RhythmOne is hosting two invitation-only roundtables with key clients and partners. The sessions are designed to educate and inform top agency and brand clients on the strategies and unique solutions RhythmOne and its partners have developed to help ensure a strong future for the Advanced TV market. The sessions will explore the current state of advanced TV and programmatic buying from the perspective of both media buyers and sellers. We will debate the future of TV: is it going to be what it has always been — just delivered through different pipes — or will advanced TV advertising be fundamentally different when all is said and done? New models and technologies, from private marketplaces to cross-screen measurement, will be discussed, as well as current challenges and campaign successes, with an ultimate emphasis on what tools will best position the category for optimal success.

            Roundtable participants include:

  • Jeff Boehme, Senior Vice President, Television and Cross-platform Research, Comscore
  • Matthew Durgin, Director of Smart TV Content Innovation, LG Electronics
  • Amy King, Vice President, Product Marketing, Pixalate
  • Ryan King, Managing Director, Research, Samba TV
  • Ken Ripley, Vice President, Ad Sales, Newsy
  • Peter Ackerman, Product Marketing Manager, RhythmOne (moderator)
