In the same week Amazon took on Netflix with streaming service for Prime customers, and online music streaming giant Spotify landed a $1bn valuation (thanks to the Russian Facebook backers). Channels are changing and most brands are well behind getting their own channel mix lined up with what consumers are asking for.

Listen out for this becoming fused with YouTube to enable the migration of pay-TV; a step that will destabilise part of the value chain and economics in the pay-TV markets.

Google Googles: Mobile pics converted into web ads via product recognition

Google is running a test on its Google’s photo recognition tool, that will display adverts to users based on pictures taken by their smartphone cameras. The ‘offline marketing experiment’ utilises visual search and optical character recognition [OCR] technologies to allow users to find out information about certain products.

The experiment will see Google work with five major brands, T-Mobile, Diageo, Disney, Buick, and Delta Air Lines, each launching special print ads designed to tie into its Google Goggles mobile app. When an individual takes a photo of an ad from one of the brands using Goggles, they will be redirected to either a website or video with more information about the advertised product.
