“Our North American rollout of Connect is the largest deployment of integrated mobile and out-of-home technology ever,” said Suzanne Grimes, President & Chief Operating Officer, Clear Channel Outdoor-North America. “The intersection of mobile and out-of-home is an enormous opportunity for marketers, and Clear Channel Outdoor is excited to continue to lead the way with Connect . Combining the visual impact of out of home with the interactive and data-rich capabilities of mobile will help our clients create more engaging and measurable campaigns to build their brands and achieve their sales goals.”

Clear Channel Outdoor and Blue Bite are making the development and execution of interactive mobile campaigns easy. Connect tags (see photo) are attached to digital and static panels on pedestrian level outdoor sites with heavy traffic such as street furniture, bus shelters and other advertising structures, also in airports and at other points-of-sale. With Connect , Advertisers have a turnkey solution for interactive campaigns using existing web-optimized content whether they need NFC tags, QR codes or SMS numbers. Clear Channel Outdoor also plans to deploy beacons and other technologies when client demand and consumer benefit arise.

Blue Bite will facilitate the consumer experience by delivering appropriate mobile content to each smartphone user who engages based on their location. They will ensure access to information, coupons and transactional opportunities, or facilitate interaction with social media or games. Campaigns can be customized by city, neighborhood, or even individual site.
