When Dom met Tom: how technology is changing the face of TV—and TVNZ

TVNZ has produced the first instalment of its Future Now series, which features a selection of talented humans from inside the building talking about some of the trends in media here and overseas—and, importantly, what they mean for local advertisers and viewers. To kick things off, film critic and entertainment writer Dominic Corry quizzes Tom Cotter, TVNZ’s general manager of digital media, on the way technology is affecting how, when and where we view our content. 

The three minute clip discusses what content accessibility means, who's doing it best globally and what viewers get out of watching on different devices. And if three minutes with Mr Cotter isn't enough, check out the full six minute interview over at TVNZ's Planit.

TVNZ was one of the first broadcasters in the region to implement an Ondemand service. And it just keeps growing. In April, it achieved another record month, with over 3.14 million videos watched (excluding short form news video).​ This represented a four percent increase on the previous highest month of March and a 51 percent year on year increase. And TVNZ has continued to embrace the mobile and online revolution with the recent launch of its iOS, Android and Samsung Smart TV apps.​

Values, impact and purpose: why marketers should be paying attention to culture

The ideas, systems and social behaviours of people come from the context of culture. As large cultural shifts take place globally, it’s more important than ever for brands and marketers to stay on top of the constantly evolving changes as they land on our shores. StopPress spoke with marketers from ANZ New Zealand and Westpac New Zealand, as well as Colleen Ryan, partner at TRA, about the importance of culture in marketing, how to use culture to make impactful messaging, and the results that come from companies looking outwards.
