"It is common to link advertising viewing at home to increased levels of materialism and domestic tension stemming from 'pester power' (children getting parents to buy something by asking for it repeatedly until they get it).
While these are serious issues, we have found that creative and skilled viewers of television advertising in the family living room can overturn and personalize commercial advertising meanings for family and household benefit," write authors Laknath Jayasinghe and Mark Ritson (both University of Melbourne).
The authors placed video cameras in the living rooms of eight suburban family homes to study viewer behavior during television advertising breaks. They followed up with family group interviews where these consumers were shown excerpts of their recorded advertising response behavior and asked to comment and provide deeper context to their behavior.
The authors consider advertising response from a viewer-centered perspective, cautioning against conceptions of advertising response, engagement, and interpretation organized solely through broadcast media contexts and from a message processing perspective. The normal and routine situations and contexts that motivate advertising experiences, responses, and engagement at home are uncovered in precise detail and demonstrated to significantly impact the process of advertising response and engagement. They also locate the presence of family interaction during the television program break, which challenges traditional perspectives of audience behavior in studies of advertising response.
"Companies should consider how family interaction, media multitasking, and the place and time of viewing impact the ways consumers watch and engage with television ads. They should also recognize that the same ad may be engaged with and interpreted differently at different times due to varying household interactions and activities that impact how it is viewed," the authors conclude.

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.
Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...
The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.
Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.
