IDC LASER™ - Increase Advertising Revenue

IDC will demonstrate the IDC LASER™ targeted ad content insertion platform whichallows network broadcasters delivering content via satellite the ability to offer advertisers exceptional ad insertion granularity. IDC LASER enables broadcasters to increase advertising revenues by seamlessly inserting regional or local commercials at the edge of the network. Since each receive location can be addressed and targeted individually, LASER provides pinpoint accuracy.

LASER also enables the replacement of ad content that may be unsuitable for specific audiences due to copyright issues, or regional restrictions, with ad content more appropriate for that target market. This flexibility allows broadcasters serving a wide geographic market to generate revenue from a broader base of advertisers. LASER allows broadcasters to maximize the value of each available commercial time slot.

Maximize the Value of Ad Spots: Targeting Audiences at the Edge

The opportunities for revenue generation offered by IDC LASER will be presented in a keynote presentation on Thursday, November 15th at 10:45 am in the Tech Talk Theater. This session, open to all attendees, will be presented by IDC’s Vice President of Business Development, Walter Capitani. For more details, visit IDC’s event page at: www.datacast.com.
