Quotable

“Rather than focusing on new massive screens and resolutions, advertisers’ time is better spent looking at new ways to make use of existing technologies, and optimize the experience for how people will actually be viewing… ACR tech allows advertisers the ability to track what people are watching on smart TVs and tie that behavior to their digital activity… And as the technology develops, advertisers will be able to not only target and decision on TV content watched, but games played and apps used.”
