SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GumGum, the leading computer vision platform for marketers, today launched its In-Content Video ad unit, a cross-platform, autoplay video execution with a customizable banner that appears in media pages instead of being limited to video inventory. In-Content Video complements GumGum’s existing viewable and engaging ad formats, In-Image and In-Screen, and allows marketers to run scalable video executions across GumGum’s network of premium publishers. In-Content Video is viewable by design and leverages GumGum’s proprietary targeting capabilities.
“For brands, we’ve definitely seen a shift in focus onto video ads, and In-Content Video allows GumGum to deliver high-impact, viewable video executions on premium publisher sites,” says Brian Kim, VP, Product Development, GumGum. “Our product is optimized for both desktop and mobile devices, and by combining this with our image recognition and contextual targeting systems, we’re able to offer yet another rich media unit that is relevant and engaging to consumers.”
In-Content Video units expand within article content when the page is in view, and collapse when out of view, leaving behind customized display ads. To date with beta customers, viewability rates for these video ad units are performing in-line with GumGum’s other formats.
