What’s new with illumin?

Author Lyndsie Wise

Welcome to the first edition of what’s new with illumin®. We’ve just introduced several impressive new features to illuminate your path to smarter decisions and better outcomes.

Ad Format Support

SkipStream™ Custom Video Player

Our custom video player SkipStream™ is now available in illumin for video creative, allowing an overlay of interactions and performance reporting based on your brand’s Share of Attention™. The SkipStream™ video player is customizable and puts the control in the viewers hands. Advertisers pay when a consumer completes their video or engages for at least 30 seconds, whichever comes first. Users have the option to skip the video after a 5-second preview if they’re not interested. Advertisers who utilize the SkipStream™ ad format for a video campaign have the option to analyze pre- and post- campaign Share of Attention™ metrics as the technology harnesses all publicly available view data for video campaigns during the time period of the campaign and tracks how content performs in real-time. If you are interested in Share of Attention™ analysis on your next campaign, get in touch with your CSM.
