The Rise of OTT in the Ad Tech Ecosystem
Over-the-Top (OTT) advertising is becoming a hot topic in the ad tech ecosystem—and for good reason. The number of Connected TV users is expected to hit 198 million this year. Internet users in the US average 17 hours per week viewing OTT and CTV content. According to The Trade Desk, two-thirds of US households don’t have cable or plan to cut the cord to linear TV. And eMarketer research finds that more than half of US consumers’ digital video views will be with OTT services this year.

The shift to OTT content consumption opens an opportunity for publishers and advertisers to engage the streaming audience and deliver a more personalized experience through OTT advertising.
But as companies build out their own OTT applications to meet consumer’s increasing digital demand for streaming content, it’s imperative to implement a consent management platform (CMP) to capture, store and signal consent and preferences downstream to vendors, creating a more personalized and engaging viewer experience.
