TV ads are starting to go over the top. Yesterday, Adobe acquired Auditude, maker of a video ad management platform for publishers. As the provider of the leading online video streaming platform, Adobe will now be able to offer video publishers a turnkey delivery and monetization solution. The integration could help make over-the-top video delivery a more commercially viable alternative to traditional MVPD distribution. Meanwhile, CE makers could also help spur development of the OTT advertising business.
