Set-Top-Box Lexicon: Versioning

CIMM is taking a pro-active role in advancing new media nomenclature and processes with both its Lexicon (terms and definitions associated with Set-Top Box data measurement) and Asset Identification Primer (glossary of asset terms). These documents form the basis of the Word-A-Week column which offers a common language for Set-Top-Box nomenclature that can expedite the roll-out of the data for its many industry applications.

Advanced, customizable advertising that better targets relevant consumer and purchasing groups is one aspect of addressability. The message itself -- the content and creative of the targeted ad -- must also speak to the viewer in a more engaging manner to form a greater connection.  

This week we examine those terms that apply to the craft of the message itself and the ways in which messages and products can become more targetable and relevant to viewers.
