Videoplaza have launched the findings of their study into the world of connected devices exclusively at AdMonsters’ OPS TV in New York on July 11 2012. The report is titled A Future for TV: IP-delivered video advertising in a connected world

We’ve summarised some of the key points below but you can access the full detailed report here.

Whilst TV advertising will remain one of the most popular mediums – both with consumers and advertisers, it is experiencing flat or minimal growth in many markets. In order to stimulate growth in this market the report details that broadcasters and publishers in general must embrace IP-delivered video and monetize it effectively.

The increasing array of connected devices available and being used by consumers is shaping the IP-delivered video landscape. If personal devices such as smartphones are taken into account, there are already more connected devices than PC or...

Or maybe it was watching a couple of flicks online – potentially via your Internet-connected TV, gaming console or your laptop. Or maybe you placed your head directly in front of the AC unit, leaned your tablet device against your raised knees and enjoyed some streaming television.

However, the best way to beat the heat tomorrow, July 11, is hitting AdMonsters’ inaugural OPS TV event in NYC – we promise superb AC – and discussing how the TV and digital worlds are overlapping, something you may have noticed while you were trying to keep cool.

However, there’s still been plenty of acquisition news to keep the consolidation train rolling – only interestingly enough, on the agency front. Following WPP’s purchase of AKQA for $540 million last week, word got out that...

As AdMonsters prepare for our first ever Mobile Publisher Forum (Nov 11-14, San Antonio), we've decided to amp up the amount of mobile content delivered on our site.

For more on this topic (and many others), stay tuned for the Mobile Publisher Forum!

1. From the Benchmarks Infographic, it seems clear that there are countless data sets to be measured. What are the most important metrics to be measured? Any newcomers? Which...
