Today In Communication History

On this date in 1941, Dutch radio societies are disbanded on orders of the German occupation.
On this date in 1943, UK introduces the Cinematograph Film Control Order to allow the Board of Trade to ration increasingly scarce film stock.
On this date in 1945, Hankey Committee recommends temporary revival of a 405-line television service in the UK but advocates exploration of 1,000-line technology suitable for cinemas and of colour and 3-D, to replace 405-line monochrome as soon as possible.
On this date in 1947, First BBC attempts to record television programmes from the face of the screen using a film camera. Great problems are caused by trying to record 25-frame television images using a 24 fps 35mm camera. A compromise is to record 50% of the television picture (ie, alternate fields), using the other 50% of the time to pull down the film.
On this date in 1955, television service starts in Denmark.
On this date in 1957, BBC Overseas Service begins transmissions in the Hausa language.
On this date in 1961, Stanford Research Institute (SRI) at Menlo Park, California, begins research into a photographic television recording disc in conjunction with 3M. The aim is to produce an inexpensive home video system.
On this date in 1963, TV television network in UK broadcasts a 15-minute commercial for National Benzole petrol.
On this date in 1985, former Miss America, Phyllis George, joined Bill Kurtis as host of “The CBS Morning News.”

NOTE: We have entered a new era in screen ratings. Nielsen is expanding its sample of TV viewers to include new
homes with meters that record the channel being watched—but not the demographics of the people watching. That will be estimated using data modeling and an algorithm Nielsen has developed, and added to the current sample that does include people meters that measure demos. The Panel Expansion (NPX), in which 12,900 households have been added to the national sample, is at the center of this change. The household ratings in these homes are measured by meters on each television in the home, while the demographic ratings in these homes will be assigned by Nielsen using a statistical algorithm. This is the first time since 1987 that homes in the national sample are not equipped with PeopleMeters, which measure both the program viewed and the people watching it.

March Madness

Digital Research
Desktops & Laptops Decline To A Minority of Premium Digital Video Ad Views
Desktops and laptops accounted for just 40% share of premium video ad views in Q4 2015, down from 52% a quarter earlier and falling below a majority share for the first time, reports FreeWheel. OTT devices continue to grow quickly, comprising 22% share of all video ad views, overtaking smartphones (19%). Among OTT devices, Apple TV led with 44% share of ad views, followed by Roku (34% share).
In other study results,
▶︎ Authenticated viewing accounted for 65% of long-form and live monetization for programmers (MVPDs) in Q4, up from 56% in the year-earlier period;
▶︎ OTT devices, at 31% share, continue to represent the second-largest share of authenticated ad views, not far behind desktops and laptops (37% share);
▶︎ Overall video views grew by 32% year-over-year and video ad views by 30%, driven by live and long-form viewing (+129%);
The entertainment category (32%) represented the largest share of ad views by content segment, followed by sports (20%) and music (12%);
▶︎ Tablets, desktops/laptops and OTT devices continue to be used primarily for long-form (20+ minutes) and live viewing, with the opposite true for smartphones;
▶︎ The average ad break length was 130 seconds (6.2 ad units) for live viewing in Q4;
▶︎ Ads served during live and long-form video skewed towards 30-second units over 15-second units, while a majority (55%) of ads served during shorter-form content were 15 seconds in length; and
▶︎ The retail vertical comprised the largest share (25%) of ad views by vertical, followed by CPG (18%) and financial services (12%).
About the Data: The dataset used for the FreeWheel reports concern the usage and monetization of professional, rights managed video content, and are comprised of over 160 billion video views in 2015. The report is released quarterly and highlights the changing dynamics of how enterprise-class content owners and distributors are monetizing professional digital video content.
Digital TV viewing is projected to exceed half of the internet-using population this year for the first time, forecasts eMarketer. Some 164.5 million Americans are expected to watch TV shows online via any device at least once a month, representing 50.8% of the population. That figure is forecast to climb to 183.6 million in 2020, or 54.9% of the population.
However, traditional TV still boasts higher numbers, per eMarketer, which notes that 205.7 million adults will watch traditional TV this year as opposed to 129.7 million watching digital TV. That gap will narrow over time as these media audiences move in opposite directions, with 202.1 million adults expected to watch traditional TV by 2018 versus 138.8 million watching streaming TV.

Mobile Research
US Paid Search ROI Seen Increasing On Smartphones
Smartphones’ share of US paid search spending rose to 20% in Q4 2015, per Adobe. With an almost 50% year-over-year increase in revenue-per-click in Q4, smartphones also turned in a strong quarter in terms of ROI, with the 31% year-over-year increase in contrast to a relatively flat ROI performance for computers and tablets. Adobe notes that the increase in smartphone transactions led to more competitive bidding from advertisers, with smartphone costs-per-click up 9% year-over-year in Q4. The increase in paid search engagement on smartphones comes at the same time as another report showing that email response rates are also growing on mobile devices.
