Make the most of your ad spend by syncing TV campaigns with your online presence

Smartphones have taken on a dominant position in everyones life. There is hardly a minute were we don't look at our mobile screen to check our mails, social media notifications or simply out of habit. In combination with a TV screen (the 1st screen) when consuming our favorite TV show, the smartphone or tablet turns into our 2nd screen. If you think the 2nd screen receives not as much attention than the 1st screen, you're wrong. By synchronizing the 1st screen with the 2nd screen, ivitec gives media agencies and brands the unique opportunity to get into a direct dialog with their audience. This opens new horizons of creativity for the whole industry.

ivitec has developed methods to synchronize off-line events with online advertisement formats, and clients successfully rolled out several formats to actively engage their audience on the second screen. The formats vary from synchronizing TV and online ads, increasing and timing ad spend for google ads, second screen gamification approaches in mobil apps that trigger certain actions in sync with television events to reward based engagement formats for engaging with the television program or its advertisements. Setting up the relevant triggers for engagement is a matter of seconds.

Below are two examples that visualize the interaction and engagement of the TV audience with their second screen devices.

Moment Marketing Summary

Use events on the 1st screen to engage with your audience
on the 2nd screen - right when they are the most receptive

With its outstanding and operationally bullet-proof video detection technologies, ivitec marks a disruptive edge of change for the advertising industry. As a consequence, a completely new medium has been born in the form of a truly interactive combination of TV and 2nd screen devices. It utilizes the broadly rolled-out unidirectional TV medium and extends it into a bi-directional interactive medium that didn’t exist before. The beauty is that it utilizes two fully rolled-out and existing infrastructures and creates this new medium by just putting the missing link in: ivitec's Real-Time Synchronization.

This is a truly intelligent video technology - ivitec

Having both, automated video and audio detection competences in house and in its products, ivitec is well aware of the ideal application areas for both methods. For the interactive applications and for detection, video outperforms audio bottom line by at least an order of magnitude.
