    The Programmatic TV Supply Landscape

    As marketers shift their TV investments from hand sold reservations to programmatic auctions, they encounter a radically new supply landscape. Virtual MVPDs dominate the category as premium content owners largely sit on the sidelines. And programmatic reselling creates added complexity and risk in an already murky CTV supply chain. Join this session with Jounce Media to gain a data-driven view into the size and shape of the programmatic TV supply landscape.

    The Art of the Buy: Context vs. Audience

    Linear TV buyers and sellers have operated in a context-first world, using network, show, and episode-level data to home in on their target audiences. Digital media on the other hand have prioritized direct audience buying. As linear and streaming TV become more intertwined, how do publishers and advertisers balance the role of contextual and addressable data to most effectively reach core audiences?

    ID In CTV: The Present Challenges And The Future Opportunity

    CTV presents a unique opportunity to harness identity in a way never before seen in TV advertising. But the way and extent to which ID should be used for TV still needs to be worked out. How granular do current ad buying systems allow advertisers to get when investing in CTV? Are household-level insights enough, or are there scalable opportunities to reach out to individuals? Also, how granular should advertisers be allowed to get, given the current wariness around how consumer identities are used in digital advertising?

    Don't Let CTV Become A Privacy Nightmare

    CTV is white hot – but that shouldn't blind you to the fact that there are numerous potential privacy pitfalls that could slam the breaks on this growing channel (not to mention fraud and invalid traffic). How do you get consent in a connected TV environment? What about managing consent at the household level? Are regulators going to wake up and start cracking down on IP address targeting? We hate to throw a wet blanket over all the enthusiasm, but it's better to grapple with these issues sooner rather than later. Fatemeh Khatibloo, a VP and principal analyst at Forrester, is here to give you your medicine.

    CTV’s Brand-Supported Future, Made Possible By Ad Tech

    Video is now consumed on every device, everywhere. Yet, the majority of ad spend last year - roughly 75% - went to ad running in breaks between programming.  So, it comes as no surprise that the whole of Ad Tech has been focused on in-break. We know that consumer habits are changing - they want less interruption, relevancy and more content - which means we must change how we approach advertising, or risk getting left behind. Join TripleLift for an inside look at the next wave of television advertising, and how ad tech is leading the way.

    The Quest for Identity

    As brands elevate their first-party data strategies, getting to a single customer view is paramount. Hear from executives in the trenches of Identity and find out how brands are: enriching first-party data and augmenting individual profiles to get to better business outcomes; combating fragmentation to avoid multiple profiles for the same person; and preparing for third-party cookie deprecation and IDFA, especially if they’re behind.

    Fireside Chat with Google

    Google is charting a ‘privacy-first future.’ Algorithms that buy third-party cookies will be replaced with algorithms that create anonymous groups of people to target. And it won’t use any alternative identifiers. These changes – which include the Privacy Sandbox – are transformative, but what do that actually mean? How will this re-engineering of the open web play out? In this fireside chat, Chetna Bindra, group product manager for trust and privacy at Google, will share Google’s position.
