Convergence and Fragmentation: The Video Challenge of 2019

The video landscape has never been more promising and at the same time challenging for media buyers and brand storytellers. It is both converging around digital data and channels while just as quickly fragmenting into countless untested media brands and their models. OTT is coming on strong as a more consumer-centric, data-driven TV platform, and yet it has spawned a range of subscription and free models, streams from legacy TV and new video oligopolies as well as a new brand every day. Video budget now can go anywhere and everywhere. Data compatibility and measurement standards have not kept up. And the creative range now spans from short form branded mini-movies to 6-second bumpers.
