Nielsen IAG Data Study Demonstrates How Cinema Boosts TV Effectiveness Significantly

NCM Media Networks, a leading integrated media company reaching U.S. consumers in movie theaters, online and through mobile technology, released a new analysis on the impact of cinema advertising on recall and likeability of advertising when combined with a TV schedule for the same brand(s).

The analysis included over 1,350 standard ads spanning 29 distinct product categories. Utilizing Nielsen IAG’s web-based panel technology, General Recall, Brand Recall, Message Recall and Likeability scores were collected from persons exposed to advertising within NCM’s FirstLook pre-show program in movie theaters, as well as from broadcast and cable television over the past five years. For each ad measured, the creative was either identical or similar in both media. Panel data was then segmented to analyze reactions of persons exposed to each medium alone, and in concert.

The results revealed that the cinema experience has a significant influence on enhancing a consumer’s ability to recall and enjoy advertising:

  • Overall, cinema is more effective than TV alone, yielding higher Recall and Likeability scores across all metrics.
  • Combining cinema with a TV special leads to significantly greater impact across all metrics. Brand Recall saw a 65 percent lift while Message Recall roughly doubled (+94 percent) and Likeability increased 79 percent as compared to TV only.

Of the 29 categories included in the analysis, performance of every single category improves when combining cinema exposure with TV, but CPG categories enjoyed the greatest benefits from combined exposure. On average, Message Recall of CPG ads increased 112 percent when cinema exposure was combined with TV. Health & Beauty, Personal Care and Prepared Foods categories performed particularly well. Also of note was the Insurance category, which showed triple digit increases in both Message Recall and Likeability.

“Past research has usually indicated a higher rate of recall for on-screen cinema ads compared to the same ads running in television,” said Doug Pulick, senior vice president, Strategic Insight and Analytics with NCM Media Networks. “But we’ve never been able to look at the cumulative effect of the same ad running in tandem on both media until now. The fact that every ad included in the analysis was part of the same creative strategy as the TV execution further underlines the idea that you do not need to have customized creative to have a highly effective cinema campaign.”

“With everything the marketplace is currently seeing in terms of television audience fragmentation and erosion, this study truly proves what a great complement cinema makes to any TV buy, especially when you consider that cinema is the number one network on the weekends,” added Cliff Marks, president of sales and marketing with NCM Media Networks.

Many brands and agencies have started recognizing the winning combination of cinema and TV, including CEO of OMD US, Alan Cohen. “More people actually pay attention to your television advertising when they’ve seen it in the theater,” noted Cohen.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year.
