All Things Outstream & Instream: December 2015

Now Live: Our New Smoother and Faster Video Player
One of the biggest pain points for publishers and their readers is the user experience, which is often negatively affected by ads impacting the time it takes a page to load and on scroll-time. ConvertMedia constantly devotes significant R&D resources to improve the user experience and recently focused on the memory footprint and speed of our player.We are pleased to announce that we have further reduced the load time of our video player by 82%. This is a win-win scenario – the users benefit from a speedy pageload and smooth scrolling and publishers benefit from an improved user experience with additional profits for every millisecond the unit spends displaying ads instead of loading. The player is already live with thousands of satisfied publishers, and their users. Visit our Outstream Ad Unit Portfolio to see the new player in action.

 

Meet MediaFuse

ConvertMedia recently sat down with Paul Salomone, Founder & CEO of MediaFuse to get his take on key issues facing publishers, the opportunity that Outstream video provides and what waits ahead for 2016! For the full interview, visit our blog.

What types of advertising controls do you think are most important to publishers?

Publishers need to be able to manage their programmatic inventory quickly and efficiently. Whether it be blocking specific advertisers just prior to a sales call, stopping disruptive auto play audio ads, or blocking certain categories/buyers preemptive, these controls are vital to a publisher’s success in the programmatic world.

How long have you been working with ConvertMedia and which products do your publishers use?

We have been working with ConvertMedia for about a year and a half. We always recommend that our publishers find a way to leverage ConvertMedia’s technology into their ad tech stack. We have seen great performance with their inline units, expandables, in banner video, and interstitials. This has proven effective in increasing our publishers’ overall programmatic yield.

Are your publishers interested in adding Outstream video to their offering? If yes, why/to what extent?

Outstream video is one of the hottest trends we have seen this year. It is a great way to add incremental revenue to publishers’ programmatic yield strategy. The technology is sleek, non disruptive to users, and very profitable for our publishers.
