  • Scenario 1: Contextual Second Screen Advertisements

This proof-of-concept demo will show how consumers can interact with a relevant advertisement from a tablet without interrupting their television viewing experience. Viewers will see how contextual metadata is transferred and analyzed in order to provide consumers with interactive ads. Enabling this capability will allow service providers to offer advertisers better viewer targeting, and it lets them offer consumers a more personalized, enjoyable TV experience.

  • Scenario 2: Personalized Advertisements

This proof-of-concept demo will show how service providers can target, or deliver to consumers based on location. After choosing a video to watch on their tablet, viewers will be presented with an advertisement for a local business, such as a popular restaurant or movie theatre.
