In the digital world, OTT/CTV are two phrases that often are used interchangeably, as they are referring to the same concept; targeting users with video ads through programmatic display on their large screen (or small screen) while streaming video content.
This video differs from standard video pre-roll as the creative placements for OTT/CTV mimic traditional TV commercials, where as standard video pre-roll occurs before a shorter online video.
CTV is a TV set that is connected to the internet (Connected TV). The connection can be made through either a smart TV itself or a streaming device, such as a Roku, gaming console, Blue Ray player, or Chromecast.
OTT refers to Over The Top, or streaming TV content because its going “over the top” of the traditional means of television (cable, satellite). The term is often applied to any device where streaming TV can be watched.
