Set-Top-Box Lexicon: It's All So Dynamic

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 rollout of the data for its many industry applications.

It's not just the targetability of addressable advertising, advanced advertising, customizable advertising and the range of other advertising platforms available via the Set-Top Box. It is also the flexibility of feeding and editing content, monitoring ad loads and ascertaining measurement in real-time. The dynamic nature of Set-Top Box data makes for a dynamic series of terms to describe them, so "dynamic" in fact that there has been recent expansion in dynamic advertising capabilities for VOD. Improved technology enables more relevant ads to be served in real time rather than in hours or days.
