Brands are looking for ways to more authentically connect with consumers, but as yet there’s no clear technology that will get them there, Jason Jercinovic, president, Havas Worldwide, said on CES panel, Hollywood and the Digital Consumer. “Advertisers are trying to find out how to connect with consumers,” he said. “We’ve seen a lot of experimentation with new technologies and are looking at how to dip our toes into alternate reality with brands, but we’ve not seen any breakaway success that’s awesome yet.” Added Brandon Berger, chief digital officer, Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide, “Public companies are seeing a lot more pressure to come up with content solutions to engage with customers in digital ways. For a lot of our clients, their customers are spending more time in digital so they’re spending more of their resources there.”

Make love, not war: Despite the buzz around cord-cutting, execs at CES said traditional and OTT realms are working together quite well. “The hybrid TV/OTT model is rapidly growing,” said Ian Greenblatt, VP, strategy and business development, Arris. “It’s not a zero sum game.” In fact, 2016 will be “the year of shakeout of what the OTT experience looks like,” said Mark Ramberg, VP, business development at Akamai. “Right now it’s being driven by consumer expectations. They’re hearing about OTT, they’re excited about the experience. But it’s not that great yet.” While NBC has already begun wading into OTT waters, Tennis Channel head of digital media Adam Ware predicted the other broadcasters will follow suit this year with hydrid offerings. “It’s only a matter of time before we see CBS, Univision, ABC getting into the OTT space,” he said.

Increase in scope of OTT content, good. Discoverability and sampling of said content, not so much. “The problem is sampling,” Josette Bonte, chief strategy officer at CTM: Institute for Communication Technology Management, said at CES. “It’s like Spotify vs radio. Spotify is pretty cool if you know what you want to listen to. The tech is getting smarter, the metadata is getting smarter, but I worry about the sampling.” Gen Edge and other younger demos “find out what to watch by doing a Google search first. The fact that the search is not on the front end of the [service] is mind-boggling.” Once sampling improves, customers can see what a given service has to offer. “Most people don’t realize with these large offerings, the 50,000-title libraries, only about 5 percent of those are movies,” said Brendan Sullivan, EVP, global operations and technology at Vubiquity. “A lot of it is television going back nine, 10 seasons. The mix of alternate niche content is forcing the shift in unbundling and business models; to differentiate you’re going to have to have some innovative niche content.”
