Quotes from Arthur Querou: 

”At tech we hvae this strange addiction to acronyms.

“OTT stands for Over The Top and it means any content that goes over a standard channel.”

“I think the most important thing is to think about, when you are marketer and you want to leverage CTV – can I capture my audience on TV in an effective way?”
