The automation of media buying, which has become pervasive in the digital world, is inexorably coming to television planning and buying.  While not  auction based,  the tools of programmatic ad operations are becoming part of the linear television media world.   This development has major  implications for brands, their agencies, broadcasters and a range of technology providers.

These topics will be explored at three-hour session  in New York with industry leaders taped for publication on Beet.TV.   The event is begin hosted by Xaxis and presented by Videology.  The event will not be streamed live.  We have republished a video interview with Brian Gleason, MD of Xaxis North America.
