  • The Real World is Posterscope’s out-of-home media landscape document that captures the highlights of the year, focuses on current areas of interest, and offers a perspective on what’s coming up.The presentation is updated every month although not all the content will change, for example, OOH revenue figures are released on a quarterly basis. The main areas updated monthly are ‘who’s buying’, ‘stuff we like’ and ‘what’s coming up’. For ‘stuff we like’ and what’s coming up’ new content will be added to the existing content for anyone not visiting on a monthly basis. The remainder of the document will be updated as and when relevant.
  • ‘What just happened’ takes a retrospective look at the out-of-home market across 2011 and 2012 to date
  • ‘How’s Out-of-home’ focuses on the broad trends within the Out-of-home industry.
  • Outdoor up £84m in 2012:  9.5% growth - Back up to historic spending highs6th consecutive quarter of growthDigital up 42% year on yearThe Outdoor Media Centre today announces that outdoor revenues grew 9.5% year on year in 2012, to £970.1m for the full year 2012 (full year 2011 was £886.3m). Quarter 4 rose 1% to £258.8m (£256.4m in 2011). This brings outdoor right back to its historic highs in 2006-7.The standout quarter of the 2012 calendar year was Quarter 3, with 25% growth year on year helped by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, but every single quarter showed outdoor expenditure growth. Altogether an extra £84m was spent in outdoor than in the previous year. All major environments (transport, roadside, retail and leisure) benefitted from significantly higher spend year on year.In Q4, revenues in the digital sector grew to £56m, the highest quarter ever, as advertisers found new ways to use digital advertising, and media owners continued to invest, transforming sites in the best locations to digital. Digital made up 21.6% of the total revenue in Q4, another record share. For the full year 2012, the average share for digital as a percentage of outdoor expenditure was 19%. The total expenditure on digital for the year was £181.7m, up 42% year on year.“It’s a vote of confidence in the medium by advertisers. The incremental spend was driven both by a higher client count and by higher average investment. There was a real high from the Olympics and Paralympics. But just as satisfyingly, there has been steady growth in the other quarters too, making six quarters of continuous growth in total,” says OMC’s chief executive Mike Baker. “Planners like the medium because it delivers a quality urban audience in what we call the active space - just the right locations for advertisers to intercept consumers with a branded visual message. And digital has again been a major driver of what advertisers can do in the medium, adding creativity, convergence and flexibility to their communications.”
  • Over the last decade we have seen the medium transformed by a surge in digital OOH, innovation and creativity alongside the consolidation of media owners and a continuous stream of investment. This rapid evolution has kept the OOH landscape fresh, new and exciting thus resulting in growth that surpasses all other media with the exception of digital.
  • OOH is also one of the only 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. The Taking Part survey has run since 2005 and is the key evidence source for DCMS (The Department for Culture, Media and Sport). It is a continuous face to face household survey of adults aged 16 and over in England and children aged 5-15 years old. This latest releases presents rolling estimates incorporating data from the fourth quarter of year seven of the survey.The figures detail increase in 2011/12 versus 2006/2007
  • Days out or visits to places (68.3% in 2011/12 versus 58.4% in 2006/2007)
  • Visits to theatre (46.0% in 2011/12 versus 37.5% in 2006/2007)
  • Eat out at restaurants (73.5% in 2011/12 versus 61.8% in 2006/2007)
  • Visit museums/galleries (37.2% in 2011/12 versus 27.2% in 2006/2007)
  • Play sport/exercise(55.4% in 2011/12 versus 50.1% in 2006/2007)
  • Go to a cinema (53.8% in 2011/12 versus 42.3% in 2006)
  • Between 1995/97 and 2010, the average distance travelled by bus in London has nearly doubled (+90%) to 81 miles per person per year, while the average distance travelled by other local buses is now similar to its 1995/97 level at 226 miles per person per year. Rail travel (surface rail and London underground) accounted for 9% of all distance travelled in 2010. The average number of trips and distance travelled by surface rail has increased overall between 1995/97 and 2010, by 61% and 58% respectively. The latest year shows a rise in surface rail travel, reversing the downward trend of recent years. Trips by London underground increased by 12% between 1995/97 and 2010, while the average distance travelled has increased by 23%.
  • And the environment is changing to meet our demands.......more pubs, more gyms, coffee shops etc....Overlay this with the fact that the world is now surrounded with technology and emerging new medias, it is plain to see that the last 50 years has seen an incredible amount of change. As a result OOH has had to evolve and adapt to stay alive and it is the sheer fact that OOH is stitched into the very fabric of our world that has allowed the medium to quickly embrace this transition in offering increased opportunities and ways to talk to these audiences.....Today OOH is reacting to the surge in technologies by providing a perfect partnership to leverage multimedia conversations.
  • The Outdoor Media Centre today announces that outdoor revenues grew 9.5% year on year in 2012, to £970.1m for the full year 2012 (full year 2011 was £886.3m).
  • Now in its 4th generation....which includes the following additions...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.
  • Through to Posterscope’s proprietary consumer survey OCS is the UK’s only OOH consumer survey, based on a representative sample size of 11,000 adults, it focuses on their OOH activities, their attitudes towards and opinions of advertising in different environments, and most 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 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.
  • The new OCS5 Survey asks consumers what product categories they plan to purchase and which they buy more on impulse. It then delves deeper into the triggers for each product category as to what the key drivers of impulse purchases are ... Giving us a greater understanding of the decision making process across a wide range of categories So for example ...Pay Day is a key trigger for impulse purchases particularly in the categories of fashion and entertainmentMood is more important for impulse purchases for confectionary/snacksAnd Peer pressure/recommendations play a key role in impulse decisions when going to the cinema/theatreThis new OCS insight can also help planners be more defined with their target audiences for any given brief.So for example a confectionary brief might wish to target 15-34 who buy confectionary as a pick me up ....So using the new OCS Insight we can be far more defined when creating our target audiences to plan buyi.e. 15-34, regular confectionary purchasers, who purchase confectionary on impulse AND their mood is a key driver of this impulse purchase
  • even being able to measure real-time sentiment.As part of the Olympic celebrations, EDF created a spectacular nightly lightshow on the London Eye, based on the mood of the nation.  An algorithm tracked all positive and negative Olympic tweets from the 10 million UK users to give a positivity percentage, which is translated into illumination on the London icon.  Visitors could participate in this interactive campaign through digital and social media activity.
  • And the real-time city is now real! The digital revolution has layered a vast system of cameras, communication devices, microcontrollers and sensors over our environment, enabling entirely new ways to imagine, monitor, and understand our cities. These systems have a value that goes beyond their original purpose: the digital exhaust of cellular networks reveals social and economic patterns, tracking systems highlight global material flows, and digitally managed transportation fleets address a city's mobility. Taken together, the impact of digital networks on cities will be as significant as any past human undertaking.LIVE Singapore!, an ongoing initiative by the SENSEable City Lab at MIT, closes the feedback loop between people moving in the city and the digital data generated by their actions. The project's platform allows for the collection and combination of multiple data streams and provides access to data through dynamic visualizations that offer new insights into Singapore's urban dynamics.LIVE Singapore! provides people with access to a range of useful real-time information about their city by developing an open platform for the collection, elaboration and distribution of real-time data that reflect urban activity. Giving people visual and tangible access to real-time information about their city enables them to take their decisions more in sync with their environment, with what is actually happening around them.Check out the video.
  • And of course we have Route, the OOH industry’s audience measurement system.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 – delivering an industry currency which will allow OOH to be truly accountable in this increasingly multi-media, multi-platform world.
  • The next two charts demonstrate how advanced the new Route system is compared to the old Postar system. From the audiences that can be measured, the scale of geographic locations, the measurement of dynamic frames and the diversity of formats and environments through to day-parts included, illumination facts and formats and location and attributes.

  • ‘Who’s Selling’ briefly talks about the OOH media owners and their plant.
  • There was a major shake up amongst the media owners in 2009 when Titan Outdoor fell into administration and their plant was taken over by JCDecaux (rail and POS) and Primesight (large format roadside) altering the sales dynamics of the medium. Since then SOV has remained relatively static.
  • With change came a renewed sense of focus and media owners are continuing to enhance the overall OOH proposition by reviewing their sales portfolio. Previously, when one media owner would relinquish a site/piece of land, another would quickly buy it up and erect a panel. Today this is not the case as media owners are collectively working to improve the quality of their plant with massive investment into existing sites and also into the development of high quality digital investments.
  • ‘Who’s buying’ provides an overview of who is spending what, where, when and why.

  • ‘How's digital’ provides a broad overview of the digital market.
  • You may find it quite surprising that it is the UK and not Asia that is the global leader of the digital OOH market. They do in fact have 35% of all worldwide screens but their government has limited their ability to be networked so it is difficult to plan, buy and facilitate a campaign on anything other than a site by site basis. This is not the case in the UK as the majority of screens are networked, making this market one of the most sophisticated in the world and allowing clients the opportunity to capitalise on the benefit of digital Out-of-home – planning by day part, location, audience, environment and mindset to mention a few. This means that, for example, it is now possible for a client to advertise ice creams in city centres on days when the temperatures reach over 25c!Number of mainstream OOH advertising screens Worldwide : c.2,500,000% of located in Asia : c.35%% located in USA & Canada : over 50%% located in UK : c.8%
  • Digital still remains the success story in OOH and as new technologies continue to be developed we predict that the market will continue to increase. Not only because digital quickens the pace of the message, offers added dynamism and relevance for the advertiser but also because media owners are able transform their plants and reduce overheads.
  • By its very nature, the major revenue streams remain in the roadside, rail and the London underground arenas as they appeal to broadcast audiences. Their counterparts offer unique, targeted solutions so will of course have a degree of capped income.
  • London is the commercial centre of digital media as the majority of roadside, rail and London undergroundformats are situated in thecapital. However, it is testament to the changing landscape that well over a 1/3of impacts are now delivered outside of London and we urge you to consider them when being briefed.

  • 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. The installation will run until the 18th April.
  • To promote the Peru-based University of Engineering and Technology’s capabilities, the first-ever billboard was created that produces drinkable water from the air. In Lima, despite atmospheric humidity being 98%, many suffer from the lack of potable water due to polluted wells and lack of rain. By tapping onto the air’s high amount of humidity, the billboard’s generators capture the humidity, does a ‘reverse-osmosis’, and turns it into purified water that is stored in tanks. Residents can then collect water from the billboard through the taps on its base.
  • The Partners was commissioned by the Consortium for Street Children, with the goal of highlighting the issue of children that have to live on the streets, both in the developed and developing worlds, and challenge the United Nations to officially recognise International Day for Street Children.The Home Street Home campaign crystalises the issue in a visually effective way, using giant children's room signs, placed in rather inhospitable looking street locations across south east and east London, to draw attention to the situation many kids are in.
  • To promote the Iron Man 3 launch,Marvel’s touring a nationwide Kinect-powered virtual reality setup that lets you ‘become’ Iron Man. Stand in front of a giant screen with a Kinect bolted above it and see your armour assembled over your body on screen, piece by piece.Once all the armour is in place, you leave augmented reality, and enter the Iron Man garage/test centre area. The Iron Man on screen is mapped to your body, so when you wave, the superhero on the TV also waves. There’s a series of ‘tests’ to run through, like shooting targets with your repulsors, and flying around the garage – each controlled by film-accurate gestures. All participants are given some souvenir photos to stick on Facebook.

The leading regions of North America, Western Europe and Far East & China will contribute 90% of this market value as smartphones with NFC payment technology become standard.
