The idea here is always to harness the true power of data. DAN Prism is just one more step in that direction.” Rajni Menon, CEO, Carat India, added, “The TV viewing landscape of the country is swiftly changing owing to the mushrooming of a large number of OTT players, better connectivity and increased smart-phone penetration. As a country, we are now spending a lot more time watching video content. A large part of this is done on the mobile and on tablets.
