Tuesday, October 19, 2010, 9:51 AM ET|Posted by Will RichmondUnicorn Media is unveiling "Unicorn Once" this morning, which allows content providers to dynamically insert ads into videos viewed on mobile devices, including iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch. Yesterday I caught up with Unicorn's chief strategy officer David Rice and its VP, Client Services, David Morel, to learn more.
Unicorn Once allows customers to integrate their own ad sources or third-party networks. Customers choose which mobile devices to deliver to in the Unicorn dashboard and can also use an advanced tool for further personalization (ad targeting, formats, loads, etc.) based on user behavior/preferences in the Unicorn analytics. Unicorn Once just finished up its beta and is available now. Like other Unicorn modules, it can be used in conjunction with other online video platforms or as part of Unicorn's own Media-as-a-Service platform.
This has been a breakout year for mobile devices with both the iPad and numerous Android devices being introduced. With the iPad and other iDevices not supporting Flash, there have been a lot of new initiatives around HTML5 and ad management, from companies such as FreeWheel, Brightcove, Ooyala, MeFeedia, Tremor, JW Player and others. No doubt many more will follow as mobile video consumption becomes more popular.
