Suzie Wang, Head of Content Distribution, Mediacorp Studios about how they are serving the rising appetite for drama

Local content drives traffic 

Across all platforms, local content still rules according to Craig Johnson, Managing Director-Media at Nielsen. But he also cautioned that brands are seated in the driver’s seat. My primary role is to comprehend today’s technology and examine how Nielsen could implement measurement services to broadcasters, OTT providers and pay-TV operators. At Nielsen we look at people, which is what we call the ‘watch-side’. So, our job is to unite ‘what people watch, what people buy’ and bring these information together statistically to provide data to advertisers and brand owners. K. Dass reports.
