Communications service providers (CSPs) have made substantial investments in video distribution networks based upon solid business models, but nobody could have predicted how radically these models would change in the last few years. These changes, driven mainly by evolving video consumption habits, require CSPs to build media cloud-based service capabilities that can easily adapt to the new multiscreen industry dynamics, thus allowing CSPs to deploy more flexible distribution networks and media offerings while streamlining operations. In this webinar, join the IT industry's iconic media cloud expert – Hewlett Packard Enterprise – and media and entertainment industry leader Imagine Communications for a lively, informative review of how CSPs can launch and monetize new content management and distribution services and create innovative user experiences to attract and retain pay-TV subscribers and accelerate monetization opportunities. This webinar will be hosted by Light Reading's global media expert, Alan Breznick.

When the industry throws around the much-hyped term 'programmatic', the conversation tends to focus on its benefits for buyers. Media planners get better visibility to inventory. Advertisers get more transparency of data. Agencies get a better price.

But by the purest definition of the word, programmatic is all about automating the buying and selling process — which pays enormous dividends to sellers! (When done right, that is.)

Last June, Multi Channel Network (MCN) proved this point when it worked with Imagine Communications to launch programmatic into the Australian market.

This webinar will provide an insider's view of this pioneering deployment, with Sarah Foss, vice president of advertising management systems at Imagine Communications, and MCN's Angela Goodsir, operations director, systems and developments, presenting the MCN case study.

More than ever, ad-driven media organizations are under extreme pressure to maximize the value of their airtime inventory for higher revenue and new business opportunities. That’s why forward-looking media companies are turning to cutting-edge inventory optimization tools that deliver audience targets while consuming the minimal amount of commercial airtime.

In this webinar, Imagine ad management guru Sarah Foss talks with SKY MEDIA's Jeff Eales about how he and the SKY team have increased revenue and decreased costs through implementation of a cloud-based booking optimizer and impression-based sales strategies.

Watch and learn:

  • How media companies can move into cutting-edge delivery platforms while still maximizing their primary revenue streams
  • How to leverage the cloud to simplify the switch from vertical to horizontal management systems
  • Why it's not the quantity of ads, but the quality of impressions that counts
  • How to squeeze a quart of ad revenue from a pint of inventory
  • What’s the difference between impact, impression and spot — and why it matters

Find out how harnessing the power of cross-platform inventory optimization can help you reach the ad-sales Promised Land.
