Advertising in VOD programming offers specific advantages for brand marketers to effectively engage consumers, according to the Phase II study of the Advanced Advertising Media Project (AAMP), a BlackArrow and 4A's research initiative to measure the impact of advertising within free VOD.

The study, which examined the viewing behavior of more than 1,000 consumers, indicated that advertising within a VOD environment has a positive impact on the level of engagement of consumers, enabling agencies, cable operators and networks to leverage full, linear TV ad loads, while allowing advertisers to utilize longer-form approaches that can serve as avenues for enhanced creativity.

Public reports discussing the findings of Phase I and Phase II are available for download at http://aamp.blackarrow.tv. Phase III, a market trial leveraging findings from the prior phases, will be conducted in the first half of 2012.
