Cablevision to Deploy New Cloud-Based Ad Solution from ActiveVideo
Apr 30 14
Cablevision and ActiveVideo announced that they are working together to deploy the new CloudTV AdCast platform later 2014. This new capability enables delivery of HTML5 interactive ads from the cloud and simplifies the process of extending rich, graphic-intensive ads to television. Ads written once in HTML5 can now be extended to TV in a more seamless way that reduces costs and accelerates time to market for advertisers. Cablevision's initial trial deployment will include American Express and its interactive TV app called "Amex NOW". In addition to more robust interactive features, the new platform will offer Cablevision advertisers key data insights into the actual effectiveness of their ad buys, viewer engagement, response-rates and conversion. These insights can then be utilized by advertisers and their agencies to further optimize their campaign and ad messaging.

The two companies bring two-plus decades of combined experience in their respective fields to create this HTML5-based solution which will run across any device -- cable, telco, connected or otherwise.

The joint offering ensures consistency and depth of advertising experience on all devices, while meeting advertisers' needs for standards-based content creation, simplicity of distribution and measurability. The partnership is intended to drive rapid expansion of rich advertising experiences to large installed footprints overnight, while opening up expanded revenue opportunities for relevant platforms using the core competencies of both organizations: BrightLine's industry leading interactive TV ad solutions arm advertisers and agencies with the tools they need to create, deploy and measure interactive advertising campaigns on TV, making their TV ad dollars work harder. Connectivity, and HTML5 represent the next generation of BrightLine's TV ad products enabling enhanced functionality including social connectivity, real-time analytics and optimization, back-end CRM integration, dynamic content, and commerce; ActiveVideo's CloudTV AdCast provides service providers, connected device manufacturers and other ad inventory owners with the tools and framework to distribute secure interactive ad experiences consistently at scale across managed and unmanaged networks and devices. A Data Manager collects data and metrics that can be fed to any analytics engine; CloudTV AdCast complements BrightLine's portfolio by allowing platforms with under-powered HTML5 support to almost overnight leap-frog to the forefront and bring these next-generation ad products to entire footprints of existing connected and non-connected devices.
