Rubicon Project Expands Premium Mobile Video Supply With Virool’s InLine Format
The InLine video format is aimed at adding premium video inventory to mobile as an alternative to invasive takeovers.
Mobile video advertising platform, Virool, and ad tech giant Rubicon Project have extended their deal to deliver Virool’s InLine mobile video ad format globally. The format, sold on a viewable impression basis, is available exclusively through Rubicon Project.
InLine embeds dynamically within content on the mobile web on iOS and Android devices. Ads auto-play on mute when the video area is viewable. Users can opt to play sound and the video dissolves back into the page on completion or stops when the user scrolls it out of view.
“Until now, video advertising on much of the mobile web has been limited to full-screen takeovers,” said Joe Prusz, Head of Mobile, Rubicon Project. “Our extended alliance with Virool brings significant new, premium mobile video inventory to the market, enabling greater monetization opportunities for sellers and deeper, more impactful opportunities for brands to reach and engage consumers.”
Here’s a screenshot example of InLine from the Virool site:
InLine is now available globally to sellers and buyers through Rubicon Project’s programmatic platform. Virool will continue its direct publisher selling.
