Viacom expects to exceed its goal of $500mln in digital revenue this year as it continues to increase its Web presence, CEO Philippe Dauman told a Deutsche Bank conference Mon. Dauman was also upbeat on VOD advertising, saying that cable operators are adding functionality that will allow the effective monetization of VOD. "From the cable operators I’ve talked to, they expect to have that in the next year or so," he said.
