Personalized Targeted i-Advertising for IPTV

Los Gatos, Calif.-based ICTV revealed that it is collaborating with Packet Vision, a company that has developed an addressable IPTV advertising delivery platform, to enable "personalized" TV advertising that is targeted, auditable and interactive. The agreement between the companies will see them offering a joint solution which they say will allow IPTV providers to increase revenues by offering advertisers the ability to produce and deliver personalized interactive spots and to target those spots based on such factors as demographics, preferences and purchasing histories.

According to the companies, the combination of ICTV's HeadendWare ability to convert standard Web content into interactive MPEG streams and Packet Vision's targeting engines will allow advertisers to minimize creative costs and maximize delivery efficiency: HeadendWare's support for standard PC, Web and Java tools will allow advertisers to create personalized advertisements that are rendered in digital video and then spliced into individual subscribers' targeted streams by Packet Vision. The HeadendWare platform will enable a "telescoping" environment in which consumers will be able to click on individual ads to request additional information, watch a demo or make a purchase. The companies say that an added benefit of such interactive ads is that they will allow advertisers to track consumer interactions in more detail, and thus improve the efficiency with which consumers can be targeted.

"Advertisers want to deliver the right message to the right viewer at the right time and to move consumers toward action," ICTV president and CEO, Jeff Miller, said in a prepared statement. "Our joint agreement with Packet Vision will enable IPTV operators to provide opportunities for advertisers to use Web tools, technologies and talent to mass-customize ad content and deliver the best ad to each viewer."

Why Healthcare and Smart City Apps Drive 5G IoT

Fifth-generation (5G) wireless technology for cellular networks is a successor to fourth-generation (4G) wireless technology. By 2023, Juniper Research anticipates that there will be over 1 billion 5G connections globally. The technology will provide the data infrastructure for the advancement of wireless communications and for new developments in the Internet of Things (IoT) -- including smart cities and healthcare. 5G IoT Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, 5G IoT connections will reach 116 million globally by 2026 -- that's increasing from just 17 million connections in 2023. Juniper analysts predict that the healthcare sector applications and government or other smart city services will drive this outstanding 1,100 percent growth over the next three years. Juniper examined 5G adoption across key industry sectors -- such as the automotive, mobile broadband, and smart homes -- and forecasts healthcare and smart cities will accoun

How Savvy Leaders Re-Imagine Work in 2023

As we look to the year ahead, there will be significant challenges and opportunities facing the Chief Human Resource Officer (CHRO) role. In order to be successful, savvy HR leaders must be prepared to take proactive steps that adapt and evolve. "HR leaders have faced an increasingly unpredictable environment amid many organizations mandating a return to office, permanently higher turnover and burnt out employees," said Emily Rose McRae, senior director at Gartner . HR Innovation Market Development One of Gartner's key predictions for 2023 is that the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and automation will continue to increase within the enlightened digital workplace. This transition will require HR leaders to develop new skills and competencies in order to effectively manage and lead teams that are increasingly relying on these enabling technologies. Additionally, HR leaders will need to ensure that their organizations are investing in the necessary infrastructure and re

Secure Microcontroller Market to Reach $2.2 Billion

In spite of the volatile global semiconductor industry being plagued by ongoing macroeconomic and political disruption issues, the secure microcontroller (MCU) market should continue to prosper. While the forecasted total available market has contracted -- especially in the smart home, retail, advertising, and supply chain spaces -- secure MCU shipments will likely be temporarily affected.  According to the latest worldwide market study by ABI Research, the secure microcontrollers market will grow to reach $2.2 billion by 2026. Secure Microcontroller Market Development "In part, this is due to the niche nature of security demand which commands a higher value proposition," says Michela Menting, research director at ABI Research . In the short term, potential supply chain issues due to trade embargoes and global COVID-19 pandemic quarantines at manufacturing sites will affect availability. Yet, demand for security, especially in general purpose microcontrollers, will ensure the
