MediaBrix Offers Industry First Responsive Design Functionality for Immersive, Interactive Ad Units for Social and Mobile

Large Animal Games and Method Solutions Adopt New Capability to Maximize Monetization and Deliver Seamless User Experiences Across All Devices; Brand Advertisers Cut Creative Approval Times and Costs in Half

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 12/18/12 -- MediaBrix, the only end-to-end, in-app social and mobile advertising solution for Fortune 500 marketers, today announced the release of the first ever responsive design functionality in immersive ad units for social and mobile apps and games. While a few game developers may have mastered this within their own games, until now, no company has delivered this to the industry at large. Leveraging HTML5 and CSS3 enhancements, this new functionality allows for full screen experiences with features such as video, social sharing and value exchange across all devices.

"What makes our vision and model work for developers and advertisers is that we provide users with seamless, immersive, interactive brand experiences that are non-disruptive," says Ari Brandt, CEO and Co-Founder, MediaBrix. "Our latest innovation is another way to make sure user experiences with brands stay positive and consistent, no matter what device -- Samsung Galaxy, iPad Mini, whatever -- that user is on."

Benefits to Developers
The HTML5 and CSS3 enhancements to MediaBrix offer an automated and seamless way for social, mobile and tablet developers to offer consistent user experience with immersive advertising across all devices. Tapping into users on all devices allows developers to maximize monetization by increasing advertising CPMs. According to SMAATO, average mobile CPMs last year were under $2. Through MediaBrix, developers can run advertising from companies such as Coca-Cola, Samsung, Lexus, T-Mobile, Procter & Gamble and many others to earn higher CPMs. To date, social app developers are reporting eCPMs as high as $120 for MediaBrix's value exchange in-game and in-app immersive, interactive brand advertising units.

"We have always been impressed by how we've been able to monetize our apps and games using MediaBrix," said Wade Tinney, CEO, Large Animal Games. "This latest announcement has really extended our reach to even more users on more platforms and we love it."

Benefits to Brands
For brand advertisers, MediaBrix's responsive design ad units offer automatic bespoke ad formatting without requiring marketers to provide separate advertising creative for each platform and mobile device. HTML5 and CSS3 allow for multiple full-screen messages and orientation support within one creative execution with minimal assets, along with support for all mobile browsers including Safari for iPhone and Chrome for Android in ways that proprietary technologies do not. Because only one basic set of creative assets is needed for each platform, these technology enhancements have cut creative approval processes and costs by as much as 50 percent.

"With technology like MediaBrix's new HTML5 enhancements, brands and ad agencies can save time and cut costs because of significant production efficiencies," said Pete Stein, President of Razorfish.

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT's direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...

As enterprises around the world struggle with their digital transformation efforts, many are finding that innovative digital teams are moving much faster than their hidebound IT organizations. Rather than struggling to convince traditional IT to get with the digital program, executives are taking advice from IT research firm Gartner, and encouraging existing IT to continue in their desultory ways. However, many CIOs are realizing the dangers of following Gartner’s advice. The central challenge ...
Cloud Object Storage is effectively infinitely scalable and boasts the lowest total costs. But cloud SLAs and T&Cs are traditionally optimized for huge customers like Netflix, so applications demanding better confidentiality or higher availability typically can’t reap the benefits of public cloud storage. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Don Martin, CTO of Security First Corp, will provide an overview of innovative technologies available today – secret sharing and information dispersal algori...
There is an ever-growing explosion of new devices that are connected to the Internet using “cloud” solutions. This rapid growth is creating a massive new demand for efficient access to data. And it’s not just about connecting to that data anymore. This new demand is bringing new issues and challenges and it is important for companies to scale for the coming growth. And with that scaling comes the need for greater security, gathering and data analysis, storage, connectivity and, of course, the...
In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...

In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Stephen Coty, Chief Security Evangelist at Alert Logic, will show how properly configured and managed security architecture can...
Many private cloud projects were built to deliver self-service access to development and test resources.
