Instream video advertising with Smaato delivers all the functionality needed to drive more revenue with higher eCPMs and improved click-through rates. There are three types of instream video ads:
Join many of the world’s top publishers by leveraging Smaato’s Instream videos and add highly monetizable inventory to your content. Our instream video is VAST (Video Ad Serving Template) compliant. Plus, it provides users with a seamless and highly viewable ad experience.
Publishers and marketers can guarantee viewability and enhance content engagement by leveraging outstream video content in premium placements. Smaato’s outstream video ad units integrate seamlessly with a publisher’s in-app, mobile web content, or desktop content, instantly transforming it into premium video inventory.
Rewarded video is a popular ad format (especially for in-app content) where users are incentivized for watching a video ad. Rewards can be in the form of prizes, virtual currency, or anything else the developer can provide in the context of their app. Or, for mobile web or desktop, rewarded video can offer users a stretch of ad-free content.
These non-skippable videos typically run for 15 – 30 seconds, and are supported by user rewards. Users opt in to watch a video ad in exchange for a reward. This greatly improves video completion rates and increases brand awareness. Plus, it helps to drive app-install campaigns.

Interstitial video ads offer a full-screen ad experience. They are typically served during natural breaks and transitions within the content (e.g. mobile games). These ads utilize the power of full-screen impressions without disrupting user experience and gameplay. Smaato’s interstitial video ads show powerful video ad content that is usually skippable after five, 15, or 20 seconds.
We give publishers complete flexibility. For video monetization, you have options: linear ads, or non-linear overlay banners.
