Bell Media has unveiled Streets-to-Screens, a multiplatform program, brought to market in collaboration with Desjardins, enabling virtual product placement across TV, radio, out-of-home (OOH), and digital. Leveraging Bell’s ad-synching Radio-to-Road program, where select roadside digital boards synchronize with ads on specific radio stations, Street-to-Screens uses the company’s first party data to extend virtual product placement through TV viewing at home. To maximize exposure, Bell Media says it’s employing geo-fence technology to retarget mobile users exposed to digital out-of-home boards, ensuring a sustained and impactful presence across various media channels.
