Local Corporation Launches In-Player Video Distribution Channel In Rovion Ad Management Platform

Local Corporation (NASDAQ: LOCM), a leading online local media company, today announced new online video ad capabilities for its rich media solutions, powered by the Rovion ad management platform.

Users can now develop creative for Video Ad Serving Template (VAST)-compatible ad units for in-player video distribution using the platform. In-Stream video advertising is a key component of ad campaigns, as video becomes a more prevalent vehicle for effectively delivering key messages and content.

According to research firm eMarketer, U.S. online video ad spending is predicted to grow 43 percent in 2012. The Rovion platform now offers agencies, brands and publishers a way to capitalize on this growth by providing a no-code creative environment to quickly produce VAST-compliant ads.

The company is also incorporating its flexible ad synchronization feature set into the Rovion platform. Flexible ad syncing makes it easy for anyone to choreograph complex interactions between multiple ad units on a single page served via a single ad tag, without the use of code.

“Our goal has been to create an innovative rich media ad platform that was unmatched in the marketplace that incorporates unique and disruptive features and functionality,” said Michael Sawtell, Local Corporation president and COO. “These additional feature sets move us closer to that objective."

The Rovion ad management platform is a cloud-based solution that enables the advertising ecosystem to create and publish original rich media ads without code or Adobe Flash® authoring software. The platform is completely customizable and its drag-and-drop functionality helps companies develop rich media ad units with a single tag that can be viewed online or on mobile devices.
