Key Insights

  • "The biggest challenge right now is that there is not enough online video inventory. That is why content creators, content owners and aggregators are in the driver seat."
  • "Latin America is one of the fastest growing markets around the world with very rapid adoption of ad-tech, particularly from a video perspective. Budgets are shifting from print and TV into Digital Video, LatAm is no exception. The conditions, in terms of avalailability of broadband, for mass-scale video have arrived, that is way adoption of tech and devices is so fast."
  • "It is not only about monetizing through online video ads but also about creating TV Everywhere services that allow monetization thorough subscriptions and transactions."
  • " Another challenge is the lack of consolidation in Latin American markets. While there are some major Telcos and ISPS there are also many local players."
