With the escalating importance of video advertising, we’ve been carefully examining the overall video landscape and its evolution. In my conversations and early analysis, I’ve seen that at least 50% of all video inventory on the market today is served in-banner. These ads, also called display video ads, are served independently of a video player, almost exclusively without video content to follow. In other words, a pre-roll without the “roll”. No doubt you’ve seen in-banner video ads on many of your favorite sites; they come in many shapes and sizes, but they run with limited incentive for users to watch to completion.
Ad environments used to be easy to understand: a couch in a living room, positioned around a single screen. But today’s digital environment is more like five couches in front of 25 screens. It is now more important than ever to understand those environments and increase the likelihood of reaching the right person at the right time, in the right environment.
