People are no longer engaging with content on just a single screen. Interactivity plays larger role in the communication than ever. We live in a highly digitalized world, but it doesn't make TV dead. TV is still an important communication channel but only if we see it as the part of the whole communication experience brands create.
TV is the springboard for the greater and deeper experience. TV lets people know your brand is available by providing reach. It conveys stories and is a great conversations starter...if fed with the relevant content people can relate to. TV is where people's relationship with your brand can begin.
We live in a complex ecosystem of screens. We tend to favor one type of screens over the others, depreciting the value of TV as the one way communication channel and prizing digital. But the truth is that if the content sucks, digital is not a magic wand that will turn it into gold.
The key challenge is to create while worthy pieces of content that work across various screens and connect them into an experience that is worth spending time on. The holy grain of media is integration of channels and experiences into a long-term journey we take on with our customers.
I've never been fond of killing the old technologies. They can be worthy if "recycled" and used in a new ways. Everything is remix today. So split, mix and mash-up the new and old technologies to create awesome. This is what you can do right here and right now.
and remember "Half the time people who think they know what the future is, they're just making shit up"
