Jan Riemens cited a forecast according to which by 2020 50% of Audiovisual Ad revenues are going to be done through TV Everywhere (OTT). That certainly is a promising figure if it is taken into account that major corporations are already putting the majority of their expanding digital advertising dollars to work in online video.
