More Information

How many people really do watch Netflix? How many fast forward and never watch adverts? What exactly is TV in the 21st century? And why that doesn’t matter to advertisers.

The course introduces learners to the new platforms of watching video and why now, the conversation is all about “audio-visual” not television.

We will also explain that despite all this change – traditional television still ranks as the number one media for reaching consumers in Ireland and how you can best deliver effective and efficient communications using this media. We will also cover how new platforms like YouTube and broadcaster players are offering more choice than ever before.

Who should attend the course?

Anyone with an interest in television, video on demand or AV. We encourage advertisers who use the medium or those who think it’s beyond their budgets to attend – we will demonstrate new ways of using the medium that may be unexpected!

  • Dispel myths surrounding the use of new technology
  • Question your current use of TV and VOD advertising
