Video Advertising: Monetizing the Cross-Platform Package - Tablets, TVs, Smartphones, PCs and Games
Traditional television is moving to the Internet. Though today's consumer can effectively avoid watching advertising on TV through new time- and place-shifting technologies, the “opt-out” function and other choices make it easier than ever for consumers to skip ads online too. Yet when asked, 75% of consumers prefer advertising over paid subscription models. To keep up with these new consumer video viewing habits and trends towards watching video content online, content owners, advertisers, and technologists must turn into entertainers, or lose precious eyeballs and dollars. To keep audiences captive, advertising must become the new form of entertainment.

The problem is the inability to scale in-video media buys so that demand (buyers) can leverage the growing supply (sellers)
