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.OCS5 is due out March 2013
Focussing on the McKinsey Journey which demonstrates how the consumer decision making process works and how OCS fits into the processUsing the Insight from OCS in conjunction with other research sources we can see the role that OOH can play at each stage ... Awareness & getting on the consideration list – Demonstratehow OOH drives awareness ... (“OOH being Known & Liked” )Active Evaluation – Consumers gather information to help make decisions – Demonstrate how “OOH is Generating Search”Active Evaluation – Key to reach consumers at right time/place/location – OCS has so much insight on Moods/OOH Channel Selection as well as Insight into how decisions are made both rationally/emotionallyMoment of Purchase – OCS has questions regarding formats noticed when shopping and Media owners often provide EPOS case studiesPost Purchase Experience - Vitally important for brand loyalty, reassuring consumer they have made the right choice etc. There is not a surplus of results available in this area however we do have lots of research from OCS on how OOH can generate earned media as well as lots of other Information.

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. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2aEPkyOBtRo
The new highly anticipated out-of-home audience data will be launched by POSTAR on the 26th February 2013. The research will cover all outdoor environments and has been developed from scratch, with an investment of 19 million over six years by the industry.To prepare the OOH industry a beta version of the data has been made available to the subscribers to familiarise themselves with the data, train staff and update systems.The final data covering road, tube and bus will be available from 26th February at which point the industry can trade using the data. POSTAR will continue to launch iterations in regular quarterly intervals. Data for retail and airport environments will also follow as part of the planned expansion of the service.The new POSTAR study will provide an entirely new currency based on a detailed gauge of the population’s movement, which uses cutting edge technology. A sample of 23,000 people provide the bedrock of travel data, which is then mapped onto a bespoke network of the country’s pathways.The study has been designed to include all possible outdoor environments, the effect of illumination, on audience figures, and the effect of an advert being digital. This is a huge step forward from the existing currency, though historical eye tracking research from Birkbeck College, University of London is retained and expanded. The change sees a rise of inventory from 120,000 sites (in POSTAR99) to 360,000, with more to be added.James Whitmore, POSTAR’s MD, said “The study brings together several sets of data. Combined it is one of the biggest datasets of its kind with over 160 million records – providing an enormous enlargements of the current understanding of OOH audiences. As such, it has been a time-consuming, very detailed undertaking. We are in a position to launch this rich data in February next year and now need to prepare the industry in an ordered and measured way”.Annie Rickard, CEO, Posterscope, said “it is difficult not be impressed by the scale of the new Postar both on coverage of OOH environments and formats but also what this means to advertisers – real inclusivity in the measurement of their campaigns. From the specialists perspective the new data sets allow us to look at the medium in terms of planning and buying by audience delivery which will lead to greater accountability with other communication channels”.
‘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.

Holocaust stories preserved through interactive 3D hologramsThere are an estimated 500,000 Holocaust survivors alive today, but with an average age of 79, they comprise an ever-dwindling part of the world's population. Their stories, however, will almost certainly live on, thanks in part to innovative efforts like New Dimensions in Testimony — an initiative that aims to record and preserve their harrowing histories through 3D holographic avatars.Launched by USC's Institute for Creative Technologies (ICT) and the USC Shoah Foundation Institute, the project effectively converts existing survivors into full-body, interactive holograms. Using seven high speed cameras, researchers recorded hours worth of testimony from people like 80-year-old Pinchas Gutter, who spent his early childhood in a Nazi concentration camp. Gutter was interviewed and recorded in 3D against a green screen inside Light Stage 6, a 26-foot wide dome lit by 6,000 LEDs. This footage was then converted into a lifelike holographic rendering designed to be displayed at museums or other historical exhibitions.http://www.theverge.com/2013/2/12/3979462/holocaust-survivors-converted-into-3d-holograms

All macro trends but all are prevalent and pertinent to OOHWhether they apply to consumer behaviour or brands or mediaAll prompt us to re-consider the way we plan and the way we position OOH within the broader landscape...
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...It’s all kinds of bespoke placements, exhibition spaces, client owned inventory and BTL retail comms.Plus the technology that consumers use when they are out and about - in principle, a laptop can be just as OOH as a posterThere’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 globalecosystems e.g.;Google (video – YouTube, search, mobile display, Gmail, Google+)Facebook (website, mobile app/site, f-commerce)apple (i-phone, i-Pad, i-tunes, i-ads)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.
By 2014, in a study by VC firm Kleiner Perkins, analyst Mary Meeker predicted that mobile browsing will exceed desktop browsing by 2014. Known as the “Queen of the Internet”, Meeker is acknowledged as the industry’s leading and most respected analyst. In the report, Meeker predicts smartphone and tablet shipments will surpass PC shipments for the first time in 2011. Additionally, Kleiner Perkins points to a convergence occurring where social, local and mobile come together through mobile devices and mobile apps. In the palm of one’s hand, these magical devices have GPS capabilities to make them local and a plethora of apps to make them social. As new social and location based apps come to the market, this will only fuel greater mobile internet usage
This changes how people behave when OOH, and also how they interact with OOH.
And these days a poster is not just a poster....it can also be used as a....-TV /website e.g. five live example on the underground which had a live link to the streets of New York-Cinema e.g. cinema Peroni-Gaming console e.g.Cadbury’s Stars and Strips)

To kick off the UK football season, ESPN , the American global cable television network focussing on sports-related programming, worked with Arena Media, Posterscope UK and LocaModa to create an innovation OOH campaign to actively engage fans and continue the dialogue with them from TV screen, online and mobile device. The campaign is the first UK campaign to integrate live, real time content and debate, featuring comments from ESPN ‘s well-known football presenters while they are on-air. The digital screens, across the weekend, show the presenters questions or raise subjects for debate, such as "Which new signing will have the biggest impact?“. Some of these topics will be discussed on air and passers-by will be encouraged to respond on Twitter, using the hashtag #espnuk.Live scores from football news site ESPNsoccernet.com were also included in the digital outdoor feeds, alongside information about ESPN’s live football matches and Twitter responses from the public.The campaign, the biggest social campaign to run across digital Out-of-Home, involved over 300 screens across the UK, including screens on London Underground and British Rail’s Transvision screens.

The space on a huge digital poster site was used to invite shoppers to donate money - by texting the poster itself. When a text arrived, a shower of coins dropped into place, forming a picture of a woman in Africa; a woman we could now help to set up her own business. It's a live example of small change here creating big change in Africa.

Eurostar screens consumer conversation live on the Tube Eurostar launched a live advertising platform to integrate social media and consumer conversation into its mainstream advertising activity on 60 CBS Outdoor XTP screens and 100 LCD screens across London Underground stations.The campaign promoted the international connection from London to Amsterdam via Brussels and is expected to be part of the brand’s activity before and during the London 2012 Olympic Games.Eurostar developed the campaign to help customers travelling around Europe share experiences and advice while communicating directly with the brand. The campaign integrated real time comments and opinions about Eurostar, its services and destinations into the XTP creative. This included varying degrees of live executions, including a timetable countdown and ‘on board’ updates.Eurostar Live was truly interactive, displaying around 4,000 unique posts per day from the Eurostar Facebook and Twitter profiles. An image uploaded online could be re-purposed immediately to run on Underground screens, and comments from bloggers using #Eurostarlive were live on screen within minutes.A digital clock counted down until the next train arrived at its destination and an ‘on board’ live report from the train provided details such as its speed, distance travelled, and pictures.Users could also share ‘hidden gems’ and recommend places for others to visit and a daily picture competition asked visitors to guess a secret location from one of the cities.

A new report from Juniper Research has found that the NFC retail payments market will exceed $180 billion globally by 2017, more than a seven-fold increase over 2012. 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. Technology & Ecosystem DevelopmentsThe report found that 2011 was a watershed year for NFC payments. Major technology infrastructure standards were finalised, many mobile network operators committed to the market and NFC payment pilots from both mobile operators and financial institutions transitioned to commercial service. Above all, NFC-enabled smartphone models were announced by almost all handset manufacturers and Google ignited the market by launching its wallet in the US.NFC enabled devices allows the user to open an app, go to a website to view content, download vouchers, make a purchase, register facebook likes or check in at a location, simply by holding an NFC-enabled mobile to a poster site or payment point. Your phone effectively replaces your wallet so if you see something you like on a poster you can click and buy it there and then.
To understand the potential of NFC, a piece of research from Posterscope and Clear Channel reveals the applications, content and environments that consumers claim to be most valuable and relevant for NFC enabled poster interactions. It also looks at brand and advertiser product categories for which NFC-OOH experiences would be most appealing and current levels of consumer awareness and understanding. A video demonstrating the future potential formed part of the research project. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ORkuWJcJpXoOther recent reports produced by Posterscope include ‘NFC News and Views’, Social Media, ‘Smartphones Social and Screen’s, etc, which all look into how OOH integrates with mobile, social and technologies.The convergent world presents an enormous range of opportunities for brands to derive even more value from the OOH medium. The Guide to Convergent OOH, located on slideshare, outlines some of the opportunities available and associated case studies.
The Posterscope View: How OOH will evolve in 2013We always like to share our perspective on how the world of OOH is evolving out there, changing our thinking and opening up new opportunities for our advertisers, so we have looked at some of the key themes which we think will play out in the OOH ecosystem over the year ahead. We look at audience growth and how very soon we’ll be able to capture and quantify its movement in a more sophisticated way than ever before, we delve deeper into how the increasingly connected population is engaging and interacting with our medium thanks to a whole host of exciting technologies, propelling OOH towards a real-time future, and we explore the growing value of more immersive brand experiences for consumers whilst out and about. The report can be found on slideshare: http://www.slideshare.net/Posterscope/posterscope-predictions-v5

Geography of Time (GoT) is a two part research project. A (quantative) survey of 3,500 respondents from 5 major GB conurbations to gain insight into city life. Secondly, a PDA diary which recorded 1,200 diary days of consumers’ activities. The PDA diary is similar to Touchpoints and analysing the two data sources creates some interesting insight. Also the data from both surveys support each other, adding confidence in the results. The time element of the survey (the PDA diary) was launched at the recent trojectory conference hosted by the IPA.
With the aim of understanding our clients’ search and social strategies, to make OOH work harder, to create innovative solutions and more convergent campaigns”
