Convergence and multi-screening is a hot topic in today’s performance marketing industry as disparate marketing teams or silos try harder to collaborate on campaigns that make use of multiple devices, screens and media.

The recent a4uexpo Europe (now Performance Marketing Insights) featured a keynote presentation by Deann Harvey, DG Media’s vice president of of Europe, the Middle East and Africa, on how marketers can capitalise on consumers’ use of multiple screens.

One interesting subject Harvey spoke of was that of the smart television, boxes that receive broadcast television, are internet connected and expandable through apps. There are already a number of advertisers investing in this platform.
