Welcome to The ‘new-look’ Real World,Posterscope’s Out-of-Home landscape document that covers all the key facts and figures, market dynamics and drivers, revenues, new and relevant media and industry news and understanding the connected consumer.This document is updated on a monthly basis.
We live in a world changing at dramatic pace… Innovations are changing the way audiences consume media, almost overnight. For example, the iPad has been the most quickly adopted non-phone electronic device ever recorded (source: CNBC / Bernstein Research). Formats are converging... For example, the humble poster is no longer this in a traditional sense… it can be a TV or a website, or a transaction point or a gaming console. Similarly, experiential activity is transforming - combining interactive content, video, mobile and social activation. And of course phone handsets themselves can now do many of these things and more…There is a huge race amongst payment-services brands to dominate the mobile commerce platform. People are increasingly expecting to be able to do anything, anywhere. The content brands are using to communicate to audiences with is also changing – many used to rely largely on a bought media model, but are now increasingly incorporating owned assets in strategies, plus driving earned sharing / exposure. Data is the new gold in identifying exactly where, when and how to engage these audiences. To plan effective multi-market campaigns requires efficient use of a wealth of local, proprietary, 3rd party and client data. Whereas the variety of communication channels that consumers have access to is fragmenting, businesses are increasingly centralising their media planning, ensuring consistency in the way their brands talk to ever-more-mobile audiences. This mobility is on a global scale, by both land and air:51%+ of global citizens already live in cities... by 2050 this will rise to 70% (source: UN World Urbanisation Prospects 2009 Revision)Global airport traffic will rise from just under 5.0bn in 2010 to 6.3bn by 2015 (source: ACI Global Traffic Forecast 2010).
The world is being transformed by technology, changing how people behave, especially when Out-of-Home…This is evidenced by the way we are having to re-define OOHTraditionally positioned as posters and screens that you can put ads on. Maybe a bit of experiential too.Today’s OOH media infrastructure looks very different...For example, it incorporates all kinds of bespoke placements, exhibition spaces, client owned inventory and BTL retail communications.Plus the technology that consumers use when they are out and about - in principle, a laptop can be just as OOH as a posterAnd there’s a whole range of things that can be layered on top of straight advertising;Services (search, public utility content on screens)Experiential conceptsPlatforms (Facebook, twitter)Content (YouTube, DOOH ‘programming’)Commerce (virtual store posters, downloadable vouchers)Games (on mobile, DOOH or both together)So what we have here is very much a bought, owned and earned OOH ecosystem of media, technology, content and experience, with lots of interconnected and interdependent partsWhat’s interesting about the OOH ecosystem is that it overlaps with other major global ecosystems e.g.;Google (video – YouTube, search, mobile display, Gmail, Google+)Facebook (website, mobile app/site, f-commerce)apple (iPhone, iPad, iTunes, iAds)Amazon (app, website, affiliate)But unlike them, the OOH ecosystem isn’t dominated by any large multi-disciplinary multi-nationalsPosterscope aims to help bring a lot of this together.
OOH is one of the only forms of media that continues to see audiences grow year after year as we spend more time out of our homes and do different things with our time.
This section examines how we can understand the connected consumer in greater depth. It encompasses industry and proprietary insight, media owner consumer panels and Route, OOH’s revolutionary audience measurement system.
OCS is Posterscope’s proprietary consumer surveybased on a representative sample size of over 6,000 adults. It evaluates their OOH activities, their attitudes towards, and opinions of, advertising in different environments, and importantly their typical moods and mindsets in different environments. Available audiences include all the standard demographic groups plus detailed audience segmentation (matching client specific audiences), category enthusiasts, WOM influentials and social and mobile audiences. Typical areas of analysis may include weight of media consumption, travel behaviour, thoughts when travelling, OOH environmental effectiveness, OOH formats noticed, intention to purchase, actions taken in response to OOH advertising, etc.
OCS is now present in over 30 of the Posterscope network countries with a total of over 100,000 respondents. In the UK the survey is now in its 5th incarnation, has a total sample size of 6,836 and incorporates almost 40 OOH formats in the analysis.
OCS enables us, for example, to understand how smartphone users interact with OOH which will in turn influence planning decisions.
IPATouchPoints is a unique, consumer-focused, multi-media database which has been produced in response to the needs of the communications industry, specifically to provide insights into how people use all media. TouchPoints’ Hub Survey provides a detailed view of ‘a week in the life’ of consumer behaviour. Respondents record their activities every waking half hour over a seven day period, giving a unique view of people’s daily lives and how their media usage fits into these patterns. TouchPoints, now in its 4th generation, is a two-pronged system which comprises of an e-diary and a self-completion questionnaire:The e.diary- Active purchasing each half hour. They also ask the respondent to tell themhow much they have spent if they have bought something. This allows them to find out more about purchasing behaviour in general. Where people are when they are buying – how much of it happens online or when they are out and about. Whether major purchases at the point of sale are made when people are with others or when they are alone. And of course to enable them to understand respondent’s media consumption just prior to actual purchase. -At the end of the half hour e.diary questions a screen of 12 emoticons have been added which respondents are asked to click on to reflect their mood state. The Self Completion Questionnaire: - More questions have been added on social networking and use of social media. - The technology section has been revised to reflect the ever changing technology market and questions about use of tablets and e books have been introduced.-In the television section respondents are asked about the platforms they use to watch content including ipads, internet connected televisions and 3D TV sets. -There are also new questions relating to product placement on television for the first time. And the VOD questions have been completely revised and expanded. - For radio respondents are now asked about radio listening via an app with frequency levels. -For newspapers and magazines respondents are now asked about readership via electronic devices for the first time, by title. - The outdoor section has been revised to include more questions about digital screens. - The gaming section has more questions relating to games played on the internet rather than just hand held devices. - The internet section has been radically revised and now includes many more frequency questions in terms of both sites used, activities on the internet and location of use.
VirtuoCity is a joint insight project between Posterscope and JCDecaux and was voted ‘Best Research Paper’ at the 2012 MRG Conference . It is a four minute driving simulation where research respondents watch video footage that follows a car driving through the suburbs and into the town centre. Specialist laptops measure respondent’s eye-tracking and then recall studies identify the memorability of different OOH advertising variables within the virtual city. These OOH variables included size, orientation, frequency and animation. The brand creatives and poster locations were rotated for different respondents, so the results were based on the advertising variables rather than the creative.VirtuoCity provides great insight into levels of fixation, recall and the ‘engagement index’ for OOH exposure elements.In future months we hope to transfer these learnings from the virtual world into the real world to plan OOH more effectively.
JCDecaux’s Connected Commuter, run by On Device Research, is a mobile panel of 1,500 rail commuters from London/South East and provides insight across a wide number of categories. Surveys have included finance, supermarkets, fashion, media, travel, motoring and insurance amongst others.In addition to this, in May 2013 JCDecaux launched its Connected Youth research initiative plugging in direct to 1,000 urban mobile-connected 15-24 year olds and enabling advertisers and agencies access to their opinions, habits and lifestyle choices. The Connected Youth community, also run through mobile research specialist On Device Research, gives brands up-to-the-minute insight from one of the hardest to access social groups. To further connect with this group JCDecaux have also developed an app to talk to its Connected Youth community on smartphone devices. JCDecaux will deliver short weekly surveys that will ensure advertisers get the information they need, when they need it. JCDecaux will also offer bespoke surveys at the specific request of agencies and advertisers to its Connected Youth community.
Ngen ,a unique audience insight community,was launched in June 2013.Dixons Store Group and Channel Five are among the brand partners for Clear Channel’s new audience insight community Ngen, which allows Clear Channel and their brand partners to participate in a hosted, two-way dialogue with 400 engaged and connected 18-34 year olds from eight major UK cities. The community will cover a wide range of topics close to the hearts of its participants, creating great insight for this influential audience. Ngen participants are from a tech-savvy generation who are used to documenting their lives through social media and are happy to interact online. Ngen builds on the community’s familiarity with social media to gain a deep insight into who they are, where they go and what they think about the latest hot topics.Run in collaboration with Crowd DNA & Trajectory Partnership, Ngen ran for an initial 18 weeks, alongside two waves of quantitative online research in the summer and autumn of 2013. A dedicated website which can be accessed by Clear Channel and their partners houses insights gained from the research including photography, video, quotes, survey results, analysis and third party literature.A full report will be released in early 2014 capturing all aspects of the project.
work.shop.play is an online research panel consisting of people aged 16+ who work, shop and play in the UK’s urban areas. It quickly provides up to date research and insight into the urban audience’s opinions, mindsets and behaviours, which can be used by CBS Outdoor to generate valuable audience insight and help shape clients products, services and communications. Weekly studies are run to generate behavioural, motivational and product usage insights about our audience. To ensure panel members are kept engaged and consistently feeling part of ‘The Urban Community’ – an interactive platform has been built, hosting a programme of rewards and benefits in order to incentivise participation.The panel is nationally representative with an up-weight to account for London audiences, and a predicted total size of 10,000+ members by the end of 2012. Vision Critical host the panel on behalf of CBS Outdoor.
Route, which launched on February 26, replacing Postar, is OOH’s revolutionary new audience measurement system enabling greater targeting across more environments than ever before. It incorporates the latest measurement technology and covers all major formats – which acts as a catalyst to allow OOH to be truly accountable in this increasingly multi-media, multi-platform world.£19m was invested in the research which took 4 years in the making.
The research study, undertaken by IpsosMediaCT and MGE Data, combines several elements: - The largest ever GPS travel survey with a fieldwork sample of 28,000 people, who each carried a GPS meter for nine days revealing how people move around as they live day-to-day. In total 19 billion GPS records were read to date and will increase by 3.3 billion every year.- A mapped network of all the pathways in the country (including tube stations, retail mall precincts, and all types of roads) to which traffic flows and audience numbers have been affixed – the Traffic Intensity Model (TIM).- Also from the TIM, the realistic opportunity to see (ROTS) has been calculated- Pioneering eye-tracking studies gauge the likelihood to see (LTS) factor of the various types of display. The research accounts for scale, orientation and distance. It also calibrates properties such as movement and illumination.
Route, based on a sample size of 28,000, encompasses all outdoor environments – airports, buses, London Underground, National Rail, pedestrian shopping precincts, shopping malls, supermarket exteriors and all roadside frames. These environments will be added in stages – the launch data includes 360,000 frames for road, bus and tube. It is designed around hyper-local geography allowing you to select from 24 conurbations or the 14 BARB areas.
With the release of Route there is a significant opportunity around the use of the data, as it can be the catalyst for the industry to behave in a very different way. Route is not a planning or optimisation tool, (more a detailed reporting tool) but as investing underwriters, Posterscope (along with Kinetic, Rapport, CBS, JCDecaux, Clear Channel and Primesight) have unique access to the ‘raw’ IPSOS data files (which includes all the recorded information for the 28,000 respondents in the GPS travel survey and the full frame universe database together with all of the visibility characteristics that contribute to the audience delivery). In addition we have the gold standard algorithmic code that is the basis for the outputs from the collected data. This dataset is a crucial element in our development of a unique proprietary planning tool, and trading by audience.

Examples of convergent OOH campaigns….March 2013 saw the launch of Posterscope, Proxama and Clear Channel’s latest OOH campaign for KFC. Utilising over 400 of Clear Channel’s NFC-enabled UK outdoor media sites, the campaign promoted KFC’s Hot Shots Box Meal and encouraged consumers to tap or scan for directions to their closest restaurant.All OOH site locations were stored on Proxama’sTapPoint™ platform. Tapping the NFC tag assigned to the panel redirected the consumer to a Google Maps page; this identified all of the KFC restaurant’s within their vicinity and provided them with walking directions to their closest one.The campaign ran for 2 weeks across the UK and gathered a lot of attention from passers-by. Many consumers interacted with the campaign via NFC and QR. Highlights included:- 60+ interactions per day-3rd most interacted phone was NFC-enabled-3rd of all campaign interactions were via NFC
The vast majority of global digital screens are internet connected (excluding China, where content updates are largely conducted physically). This enables content to be changed quickly and cost-effectively, plus allows advertisers to optimise activity in real-time, based on variables such as sales, search etc. Optimisation can involve anything from creative content featured, to airing location / time / day etc. Thus screens can be used reactively and tactically. Content can be redistributed from other digital sources – allowing for integration with other bought / owned / earned digital media and new data feeds, plus enabling a variety of other interactive and content-sharing options.LIVEPOSTER allows us to broadcast dynamic real time advertising to digital out of home screens. UK jobsite reed.co.uk is launched a digital out-of-home campaign featuring live vacancies as they are posted to the website. The campaign includes national rail and bus shelter ads from JCDecaux and Clear Channel and sits alongside the brands current TV push. Working with LIVEPOSTER, the out-of-home push features reed.co.uk’s ‘Love Mondays’ messaging, originally developed by Contagious ContentRead more at http://www.thedrum.com/news/2013/01/24/reedcouk-launch-digital-outdoor-push-liveposter#jTwBVyagCzVKMXP3.99
Posterscope embedded interactive digital screens in 20 bus shelters around the country to show hyper-local consumer generated reviews on Yell. Users can drill down into more detail to read the full review using the on-screen interface.
To promote their 123 Current Account and credit card Santander wanted to save the people of Shrewsbury £1 million. They did this by creating a three day event in the heart of the town with experiential staff capturing the combined savings for if everybody switched to the 123 Products. Posterscope assisted with this project by creating new out-of-home displays across the town.
John Lewis, the official department store of London 2012, wrapped its Oxford Street and Westfield Stratford City stores in spectacular fashion, with branded banners as part of its support for the Games. The Oxford Street store was wrapped with an asymmetric British flag, whilst a banner displaying medals made from items shoppers could buy in store went up at Stratford. The campaign, executed by Posterscope, formed part of a wider campaign targeting both domestic and international tourists while they are around the Olympic venues and travelling across the capital

The extravaganza, #BABeachside, offered access to a ‘pop up’ Beach Lounge plus a very special experience to dine in the sky. Situated by Hove Lawns on Brighton seafront, each day was themed around a different destination you can fly to from Gatwick with British Airways, starting with Italy and followed by St Lucia, Lanzarote, Morocco, St Kitts and finishing with Mexico. Uniformed British Airways Ambassadors were situated in and around the city centre over the six days handing out 400 sticks of British Airways rock. Each stick gave access to the ‘pop up’ Beach Lounge or for the lucky few, the treat unveiled a very special prize to take a unique ‘flight’ to dine in the sky!
Online fashion retailer, Very.co.uk, launched a digital ‘window shop’ for the Christmas party season using an empty shop window in Liverpool’s shopping and leisure complex, Liverpool One. The ‘window shop’ incorporated both NFC and QR code functionality which allowed passers-by with smartphones or tablets to scan and shop the collections on the Very.co.uk website. Purchases ordered before 9pm were delivered for free the following day. The windows featured three of Very.co.uk’s key festive trends, Glitz and Glam’, ‘Rock Chic’, and ‘Snow Princess’, which were specially created to appeal to the tastes of Liverpool’s shoppers, based on their typical browsing and purchasing habits with the e-tailer. The campaign was planned and bought by Posterscope and Carat.
During a fictional graffiti billboard campaign promoting the demise of GioCompario, Twitter saw a huge increase in buzz. OOH was the only live broadcast media during this period proving its power to influence digital behaviour. Brand Objectives:Increase brand considerationCreate a unique & authentic graffiti campaign in OOH Tactical Planning: Avoiding quality backlit and scrolling formats by selecting undesirable locations, increasing authenticity of the creative.
MINI Fan the Flame. In this campaign, executed by Posterscope Belgium, MINI launched a pretty cool, live streaming social installation at the Brussels Motor Show, featuring the new MINI Countryman. The Countryman was placed on a 15% slope, held only by a thick rope, while a Bunsen burner was placed under the rope and remote rigged to their live streaming app, where each “like” generates you a burst of flame on the rope in real time…Whoever’s ‘burst of flame’ broke the rope and set the MINI Countryman free, got to keep the car.
Samsung held a live event in Portugal to showcase the capabilities of the Galaxy Note 10.1. An outdoor advertisement featured a remotely-located artist on a two-way digital screen, who was asked to draw caricatures of passersby in real-time.Those who stood in front of the interactive billboard could watch the artist live on the giant screen as he drew their picture. Instead of using paper and a pencil, he was given a Samsung Note 10.1 to create the caricatures.Afterwards, he revealed his drawings to the subjects and the pictures were also posted on Samsung Portugal’s Facebook page.
Fanta launched a highly interactive OOH campaign to target teenagers, which offered them the chance to physically connect with the brand. Users were encouraged to participate on a range of challenges and games through a targeted national 6s campaign, designed to seamlessly drive consumer engagement with the brand from offline to online. The ‘Fruit Throw’ game, which took place on 10 interactive screens strategically located where teenagers typically socialise, allowed users to play the game directly on screens on roadside bus shelters and shopping malls. The screens also featured a local leader board. Consumers were further encouraged to engage with the brand through Fanta branded bus stops, which were adorned with moveable Fanta stickers. People could take photos of themselves pulling their best ‘Fanta face’ with the stickers and post them on the Fanta Facebook page for a chance to win prizes. In addition, other roadside and mall 6s encouraged teens to take part in challenges, posing with 6s and uploading their photos to Facebook. Created by Posterscope and Publicis.
Posterscope worked with digital and design agencies Work Club and AllofUs to create the “Window of Intensity” for coffee brand Carte Noire Instinct at Westfield Stratford. A shop window was transformed into a unique sensory experience combining sound and real-time generative visual effects across a five-metre LCD video wall. Using a live HD video feed, motion-tracking technology and Microsoft Kinect, the public see their surroundings transformed through visual effects ranging from immersive colour trails, weather alterations to crystallising patterns, triggered by motion and proximity. The closer the user is to the window the more intense the experience, emulating the intensity inside every tin of Carte Noire.
As the web becomes increasingly hyper-local and businesses / consumers create more location-based data, there are huge opportunities to use the latter to inform and optimise OOH planning, plus measure effectiveness.Electronic transport tickets, sat navs, loyalty cards, mobile search, mobile wallets, plus numerous websites / mobile apps are just some examples of how technology is being used to create location-specific data trails – all of which have the potential to help determine which OOH sites, day-parts, and creative treatments are most effective for a particular campaign.Location based tweets provide an ideal data set to mine, thus helping us infer which posters may be more effective in influencing a consumers digital behavior. The map shows tweets generated in Nottingham in a 7 day periodThe pins show poster locations, while the color represents the associated index of the volume of tweets (generated in a 200m proximity to the poster). Red pins are the highest indexing posters that people tweet in proximity to.
Strava is website and mobile application used by runners and cyclists to track runs and rides through GPS. Combining stat tracking with social networking, it provides route rankings, reward badges and timed challenges to its users.The Strava map above shows cycling activity during the night of the Dunwich Dynamo, 20-21 July 2013, when a thousand or so people cycled from London to the Norfolk coast.A snake of light shows the riders gliding through the night, while the bright lights appearing all over the UK and Europe are regular users of the app.This data source provides fascinating location based data trails and helps us identify which roads index highest to target cyclists in the UK, helping us make a more data driven approach to selecting roadside locations to place OOH posters. http://lcc.org.uk/articles/strava-map-shows-hundreds-of-dunwich-dynamo-cycling-trips-from-london-to-the-norfolk-coast
OOH and mobile display media have a symbiotic relationship: audience, location and recency. However often planned in silos for each channel. Our approach is to integrate planning efforts to these OOH mediums. Right now, the consumer public is acting through their mobile after seeing a poster and vs. the national average the smart phone audience after seeing a poster are twice as likely to: check in, download the app, tweet, visit a brands Facebook page. With Nokia, we are pioneering in this space to test the effectiveness of planning with an integrated approach.
The internet has seen a huge uplift in the past decade- from almost no revenue in 1999, to becoming the largest advertising media today. This rise has been at the expense of press, with newspapers and magazines seeing dwindling revenue. Those papers which have adapted to online formats have survived whilst local newspapers have suffered. Outdoor, TV and Radio have maintained a similar share of voice across the period.
Outdoor up 5.9% in Quarter 2 to £243mDigital revenues are now £52.3m, or 21.5% of the totalEight consecutive quarters of growth for outdoorThe Outdoor Media Centre (OMC), the trade body for outdoor media owners, announced that total revenues for April to June 2013 across all outdoor was £243.1m, which represents growth of 5.9% year on year. Digital revenues in the quarter amounted to £52.3m, which was 21.5% of the total. Digital revenue growth was up 37% year on year. “This quarter is exceptional in showing a pretty large uplift, on top of relatively tough comparatives. In 2012, outdoor grew 9.9%, and certain media owners were already capitalising on the Olympic hike in spend”, commented Mike Baker, CEO of the Outdoor Media Centre. “All growth is advertiser-led growth, so we are very pleased to see the continued investment from our clients. More advertisers than ever are finding outdoor relevant to their brands and are using the active space as a place to target their consumers.” Categories which spent significantly more in the quarter on outdoor include finance, drink, motors and household appliancesPosterscope estimates that OOH revenue in 2014 will be +3%, in line with total advertising growth.
Digital showed strong growth in 2012, particularly towards the end of the year, where it accounted for approximately 12% of total OOH spend. In 2013, digital spend has remained relatively constant and at a higher level on average than in 2012. The latest Nielsen data shows that to date, over £75m has been spent on digital OOH with the top digital advertising categories as follows: Expenditure (in £)Media 13,887,511Telecoms 10,714,287Entertainment & Leisure 8,591,973Finance 8,474,103Travel & Transport 7,100,896Drink 6,087,502Motors 5,168,750Govt, social, political Orgs 3,201,784Computers 2,508,038Retail 2,151,786 In addition to this, the top digital advertisers to date are: Expenditure News Intl Newspapers Ltd 11,553,575British Sky Broadcasting Ltd 3,596,428British Airways Plc 2,934,823HSBC Bank Plc 2,618,751Halifax Plc 1,935,714Hutchison 3g Uk Ltd 1,840,179Warner Bros Distributors (Uk) Ltd 1,782,142Heineken Uk Ltd 1,717,858Lloyds Tsb Plc 1,363,389Anheuser Busch Inbev 1,344,643*Data based on ‘large digital formats’ in Nielsen AdDynamix**No data available for 2011

Strapline: The Art of OutdoorAbout:A relative newcomer to the OOH scene, launched in 2005 Ocean Outdoor is a boutique, UK-based media company pioneering creativity in digital OOH via an expanding portfolio of large-format, high profile sites.In May 2012 a management buyout, backed by LDC Capital, purchased the business from Smedvig Capital for £35m.Keyformats: Ocean specialises only in large-format digital (i.e. sites such as Eat Street @ Westfield London), iconic landmark and super-premium banner locations. 50% of Ocean's inventory is traded by day part, hour, minute or even gender.Geography: Oceans has a regional footprint that spans the following UK cities: London, Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds and Glasgow. Key areas for investment: Ocean practices 'The Art of Outdoor', with every site in the Ocean portfolio having a unique quality and personality. The Grid: In September 2013 Ocean launched The Grid the UK's first large format, full-motion, city-centre network. The Grid consists of 7 key digital outdoor locations in London, Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds & Glasgow & has increased Ocean's UK coverage. Ocean Labs: Allows us to test the very latest Out-of-Home innovations such as gender recognition technology, sound showers as well as mobile integrated campaigns. We launched 4 new sites across the regions: Leeds city centre (first exterior DOOH screen in Leeds city centre), Glasgow & Liverpool.Research: The Science Behind the Art of Outdoor In part in response to Route research being launched, we recently commissioned some Neuroscience research that looks into the true impact of Out of Home advertising. Neuroscience identifies the wow factor at the heart of great outdoor. A theoretical model, grounded in neuroscience, says that to get great results, outdoor advertising needs to capture our attention and then engage our emotions. A strong emotional response serves memory encoding, and this is key for any communication, because memory encoding correlates with subsequent purchase behaviours.KEY NEUROSCIENCE LEARNINGS: Neuroscience identifies the Wow factor at the heart of Outdoor. Premium Outdoor sites generate stronger emotions by impacting the right brain.Digital sites offer elevated engagement because our brains are programmed to respond to changes in our environment.Creative, when framed by a premium site, works much harder for the brand.The most iconic sites have a powerful priming effect delivering elevated impact for the campaign beyond the initial viewing.http://www.oceanoutdoor.com/https://vimeo.com/73369556
