NightVision, designed and developed specifically to tap into load shedding schedules and activate media exposures in real-time. This first-of-its-kind AdTech, developed with insights into human behaviour, API integrations, and geo-fencing capabilities, making it possible to boost investment in areas where we know we can capture a more attentive audience digitally during load shedding.
The negative impact of load shedding on businesses is monumental, with an estimated loss of over R1.2tn ($65bn) to the economy. Advertising spend is also under scrutiny, because of the effect that these power cuts have on delivering paid-for exposures on channels.
We are excited to be launching NightVision into the South African market, and we are confident that it will provide significant benefits to our clients...– Dawn Rowlands, CEO Dentsu Africa.
