"The outlets for watching video content are proliferating and consumers are embracing the flexibility of watching programming on the best available screen.  Advertisers are following suit in terms of utilizing the best screen available to reach consumers," said Scott Ferber, Chairman and CEO, Videology. "Last quarter, multi-screen or screen-agnostic campaigns that ran on our platform in APAC almost doubled, showing the confidence that advertisers have in data and technology to achieve optimal results and reach their target audience across devices.  The days of planning in siloes are truly shifting."

According to the analysis, which is based on 549 million impressions delivered via Videology’s platform from April through June 2014, 19% of all campaigns in Q2 were delivered to more than one device – 13% were delivered to PC and mobile, 5% to PC, mobile and connected TV, and 1% to PC and connected TV. Only 10% of campaigns ran across multiple screens in Q1 2014, compared to 19% in Q2.
