LG Ad Solutions | February 09, 2023
LG Advertising Solutions has recently released the results of its thought leadership study, "Enhanced Ads Study," highlighting the impact of enhanced Connected TV (CTV) advertising formats on watcher engagement and productivity, providing critical insights for the advertising industry's future.
The enhanced CTV ads use dynamic QR codes that, depending on time, change messaging and trigger location-specific creative content. Its study reported that around 49% of U.S. consumers engage with enhanced advertisements, demanding personalized and interactive advertising experiences. In addition, it discovered that approximately 94% of consumers feel the same way or prefer brands that use QR codes, and the same number are more likely to use or buy those brands.
They either feel the same or are more inclined towards the brands with store locations near them, with 92% regarding the same and more likely to buy or use those brands. In addition, an estimated 72% view the ads that are influenced by the current weather condition in their city, with approximately 94% having similar feelings or more chances of opting for the weather-based contextual ads and about 92% feeling the same or more possibilities to buy or use those brands. Thus, 72% of consumers prefer enhanced advertisements that display real-time sports scores, a countdown to games or events, and team matchups, and 64% are more likely to engage with these ads.
CMO of LG Ad Solutions, Tony Marlow, said, "The results of the LG Ad Solutions Enhanced Ads Study reinforce the importance of adapting to changing consumer preferences and leveraging innovative ad formats." He added, "By providing brands with the ability to create more personalized and interactive ad experiences within CTV environments, we are helping to drive better engagement and outcomes for both advertisers and consumers."

DISPLAY ADVERTISING, RETARGETING
Clear Channel Airports | January 18, 2023
Clear Channel Airports (CCA), the U.S.-based airports business of Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc., launched yet another cutting-edge digital media program for the highly anticipated grand opening of Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) Terminal A. The digital media makeover, created in collaboration with the PANYNJ, includes almost 6,000 square feet of the most cutting-edge premium advertising media.
Global businesses headquartered in New Jersey, such as Rutgers University, Audible, and Atlantic Health System, are the first advertisers to access this new airport media area, where they will reach millions of airport consumers using the most advanced digital and printed display technology.
Clear Channel Airports, the nation's premier airport media supplier, included this advertising space in the terminal's $2.7 billion refurbishment. The nearly one million square foot terminal offers advertising, brand collaborations, sponsorship, and experiential marketing options for brands and enterprises seeking to reach millions of flyers in the larger metro region.
This current redevelopment at EWR coincides with CCA's 12-year contract with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to renovate its prestigious airports, including LaGuardia (LGA), John F. Kennedy International (JFK), and Stewart International (SWF). The partnership, announced in October 2020, is the biggest airport sponsorship and advertising campaign in the United States.
CCA's new digital media program involves over 70 high-impact and innovative displays throughout the 33-gate terminal, including an iconic 24-foot seamless digital "umbrella" — a suspended, first-of-its-kind airport advertising screen hanging above the terminal's most enormous concourse, where not only can you view the massive installation head-on in both directions, but you can also see the advertising as you walk beneath it.
Moreover, a network of 54 ultra-high-definition LCD panels, two distinctive 42-foot curved LED soffits, and 16 dynamic digital columns illuminate the new ultramodern interior of Terminal A, providing an impactful, audience-focused advertising environment. In addition, CCA said that a 75-foot-long external head-on digital welcome display would be added to the new consolidated car rental facility (CONRAC).
