The Video Overlay Ad loads as soon as the Web page fully loads. Unlike pre-roll, it separates editorial content from your ad. The video dominates the page upon load, darkening the page background so your video is the dominant element on the page! The video can run ROS or can be targeted by content section or section front, like the homepage.
The Video Overlay runs from a 1x1 pixel ad tag and doesn't require a companion ad. This allows advertisers to target sections that may not have display advertising impressions available.
Optional companion ad available in two sizes: 300x250 or 728x90
An 88x31 logo can also be included on the video.
