Origin set to join the stage in San Francisco for TVOT 2024

Few summits/conferences garner the same level of interest and attention as those that are organized by TVOT. For that reason, we are thrilled to have been invited to speak on two panels at the upcoming conference taking place at The Officer's Club in San Francisco this March.

Here is everything you need to know about each of the panels and links to learn more and register.

First panel

Wednesday, March 27th, 2024 - 3:05pm

At a time when brands are increasing their investments in CTV advertising and CTV ad inventory is rapidly growing, thanks to the ongoing proliferation of FAST channels and the rollout of ad-supported tiers from streaming giants such as Netflix and Disney+, this session will explore the new forms of advertising (contextual, dynamic, personalized, interactive, shoppable and more) and the new kinds of campaigns that CTV and its ability to generate real-time, granular data are making possible.

Questions to be addressed include:

  • What are the most important recent innovations in CTV advertising—for example, in such areas as audience measurement/data-generation and interactive and shoppable formats—and how are they faring in the marketplace?

  • What are we learning about CTV viewing behavior and how should this information impact advertising strategies? Research from Tvision has found that CTV ads deliver lower ad attention than linear and that this trend is actually increasing—how, then, to account for and address this issue?

  • Moreover, while attention to CTV varies widely depending on the app, daypart, program and other factors, CTV advertising is not priced to account for these differences—how can we remedy this?

  • How can custom ad formats—such as wrappers and games—improve attention for CTV ads? How can media buyers identify and target more engaged audiences?

  • And how could political advertising catalyze, and benefit from, innovations in CTV advertising in the current election year? Panelists include:

Brett Hurwitz, Business Lead, Addressable TV, Yahoo

Fred Godfrey, CEO, Origin

Matt Durgin, VP of Content and Services, LG Electronics

Paul Erickson, Principal, Erickson Strategy & Insights (Moderator)

Virginie De Bel Air, Director of Product Management, Roku

Yan Liu, CEO, Tvision

Second panel

Thursday, March 28th, 2024 - 4:15pm

The TVOT SF 2024 “Grand Finale” plenary session brings together representatives of agencies, community/advocacy organizations and providers of new technologies and services for political advertising, in order to explore not only how advanced-TV advertising is being used in this general election year, but also to debate what its potential could be for advocacy advertising after the election. Can advanced TV be a force for positive change? Panelists include:

Chris Vail, VP of Political Ad Sales, Effectv

Clayton Banks, CEO, Silicon Harlem (Moderator)

Fred Godfrey, CEO, Origin

James Lance Taylor, Professor, University of San Francisco

Scott Stansfield, CEO, Centriply

Shalonda Hunter-Harris, Senior Director of Digital, Social and Creative, The Leadership Conference
