Score one for Quibi – a federal judge denied Eko’s request for a preliminary injunction of the mobile-first streamer’s technology feature, Turnstyle, which lets viewers toggle between portrait and landscape formats. “We are extremely pleased the Court ruled today that Eko has not presented a credible case for a preliminary injunction,” Quibi said in a statement. “Eko has no case against Quibi – this is a frivolous lawsuit brought by a company and CEO looking for a payday. We will continue to aggressively defend ourselves.” Eko alleges Quibi stole trade secrets for the technology for Turnstyle. Eko’s attorney said the company “look[s] forward to presenting the merits of the case at trial, including our request for substantial damages.”

TECH TALK

Discovery, Inc. announced the launch of OneGraph, a new ad product. When combined with Discovery Engage, the company’s advanced advertising solution, OneGraph will offer marketers a single platform to reach and analyze viewers across all platforms, including linear data-driven and addressable linear advertising and TV Everywhere. “As the industry moves away from age and gender and embraces audience-based buying, we have heard from many of our clients that they want the ability to activate a unified audience target across all screens combined with the ability to analyze on the back end,” said Sam Garfield, VP Data Strategy and Analytics, Discovery, Inc. Powered by LiveRamp, OneGraph utilizes Discovery’s proprietary digital data through a new cross-platform device graph to connect identities across linear viewing, VOD, streaming, desktop, mobile and connected devices.

The Advertising Research Foundation announced a collaborative research initiative designed to establish methods for applying randomized control testing to cross-platform advertising impact analysis. The proof-of-concept study, named RCT21, will apply experimentation methods to measure incremental ROI of large ad campaigns run across multiple media channels at once, including addressable linear TV and multiple major digital media platforms. “The digital platforms have championed the value of random control tests and have made them a cornerstone of their success,” said Scott McDonald, CEO of the ARF. “ARF has highlighted the scientific progress that has been made on ‘incrementality,’ but we needed to take it farther to have more extensive impact on existing marketing practice.” The ARF is conducting the research in collaboration with 605, Central Control and Bill Harvey Consulting. A select number of national advertisers are also being recruited to join in the project.

FOX Sports is working with Google Cloud to automate logging, discovering and storing video assets. The system will utilize Google Cloud’s video search and advanced machine-learning capabilities to help the network unlock the value of its sports content archive in a more effective way. “We’re excited to team with Google on this project that will allow FOX Sports to take the next step toward the most state-of-the-art workflow for accessing all of our media,” said Brad Zager, Executive Producer, EVP/Head of Production & Operations at FOX Sports, who oversees all live event production, pre- and post-game shows, operations and creative services.

ADVERTISING

Personalization is a key to success in advertising – now more than ever, according to Innovid’s new study, “2020 Consumer Attitudes on Personalized Advertising.” When asked if personalization matters, 43% of respondents said it was important that the online ads they see are personalized, incorporating geography, interests and behaviors. Twenty-nine percent said they would be more likely to buy something if an ad was personalized, and 31% said they tend to be more loyal to brands that embrace personalized ads. “Advertisers aren’t doing enough to personalize across channels, despite strong demand among consumers,” said Stephanie Geno, SVP of Marketing, Innovid. “COVID-19 is also accelerating the need to be more personalized as a one-size-fits-all approach in this environment can turn off customers, hurt your reputation and undercut revenue.”

Speaking of personalization, Clinch, a provider of cross-channel dynamic creative optimization technology to advertisers, announced the launch of a video rendering engine, Clinch Xenon, to provide customization and control for video editing that makes it easier and more cost-efficient to produce assets required for omni-channel personalization. “Clinch Xenon is purpose-built to personalize video at scale today and into the future,” said Oz Etzioni, CEO of Clinch. “Clients and partners are now able to enjoy much greater control over their video parameters, without any creative or production limitations.”

DPAA announced that its Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Board, launched in June, has taken action on two projects, with the IRTS Foundation and Media for All, to help build pathways to minority representation in the OOH industry. The Board will provide the OOH industry’s first involvement with IRTS’ many diversity initiatives, including its Summer Fellowship Program, Multicultural Career Workshop, Faculty Seminars and Future Media Leader Accelerator Series. The Board will also partner with the UK-based Media for All to bring its mentoring program to Canada and get DPAA members in other parts of Europe involved.
