Pre/Post Roll Video

Cincopa allows you to add VAST to display ads in your Cincopa Videos.

VAST (Video Ad Serving Template) is a specification released by the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) that sets a standard for communication requirements between ad servers and video players. It is a data structure declared using XML.

VAST video ads is a great option that lets you promote both your own and third-party content in your videos across all platforms.

You can take full control over ads appearance, placement, performance, and the number of impressions they get. If you own a solid video network or large video portal, you can easily promote your own content with VAST ads.

You can place catchy ad videos in pre-roll or post-roll. Optionally, you can allow viewers to skip ads after a few seconds or keep them after watching the full ad — the choice is yours.

What are Pre/Post Roll Videos?

Pre-roll and post-roll video ads are usually short and catchy. A pre-roll ad starts playing immediately after a user clicks on the play button in the video player before the main video. A post-roll ad is shown after the video.

During the ad playback, video player controls are hidden and users have to watch the entire ad before controls become active.

Interactive pre-roll and post-roll ads will look great with any custom type of video content attracting attention from as many viewers as possible to your brand. Wondering how you can do it with your video?

Let’s take a look at the new advanced video player branding tool introduced by Cincopa.
