LONDON — Advertisers are being urged to quit viewing spending allocation as an “either-or” between TV and online video, and instead buy both together for campaigns.

“We’re entering in to an economy where there are friends with benefits – video and TV working together,” says video advertising technology platform vendor Videology‘s head of global TV strategies Rhys McLachlan.

“Video remains the pre-eminent advertising format available to the market. Linear will remain the most compelling and powerful entertainment format and the go-to advertising format. There doesn’t seem to be any demonstrable decline in consumption – if anything, video is going from strength to strength.”
