Video Chip inside the Paper Magazine

Video ads are being displayed in paper magazines . A small video screen like mobile phone display and chip to keep the video file inserted in the Magazine’s page displays the video ads.

For the first time in the world ,Pepsi and US TV network – CBS jointly tried this idea.

Over to BBC News :

The small screen, built into a cardboard insert, contains an advert for Pepsi Max and trailers for US TV network, CBS.
There are also in-built speakers, so the viewer can hear the advert too.
“This is an extraordinary way to refresh how we interact with consumers,” said Pepsi-Cola’s chief marketing officer, Frank Cooper.
Chip technology is used to store the video – described as similar to that used in singing greeting cards – which is activated when the page is turned.
The slim-line screens – around the size of a mobile phone display – also have rechargeable batteries.
Each chip can hold up to 40 minutes of video. BBC News’ Los Angeles correspondent, Rajesh Mirchandani, said that the magazine advert was mounted inside a cardboard insert, so it was “instantly distinguishable from a normal flimsy page”.

“You can’t really flick through the magazine, because the 4-page insert that includes the video screen is relatively bulky. “And when you do open up the relevant page, the actual advert takes several seconds to load and play and that’s a lifetime’s lag in the advertiser’s world,” he added. Copies of the magazine containing the screens are being sent out to several thousand subscribers in Los Angeles and New York.

CBS and Pepsi won’t say how much this limited commercial trial is costing, but manufacturers Americhip told BBC News that a multi-thousand print run with built-in screens would cost in the region of US $20 (around £13) for each magazine.
This has prompted criticism from some quarters, saying that the internet has already been delivering video-embedded-in-text for some time.
