NEW YORK, Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovid, the technology platform delivering immersive video advertising anywhere, today released its Interactive Video Advertising Benchmarks: Q4 2012.

Meanwhile, campaigns utilizing video interactivity saw a whopping 3.09% Engagement rate and 71.58% Completion rate. Furthermore, interactive campaigns delivered an additional 21.57 seconds in time spent, converting 30 second media buys into 51.57 slots and delivering a 70% increase in brand exposure with no additional media investment.

"The Quarterly Benchmark report is a great representation of how video advertising is performing across the industry," said Zvika Netter, CEO of Innovid. "We served simple pre-roll campaigns to the most complex interactive units across thousands of sites for our clients. Adding a native element like interactivity to pre-roll campaigns proved to be a winning strategy for advertisers, who were able to maximize the impact of their media buys and earn an average additional time spent of 21 seconds of consumers with their brand. This Benchmark report should help our agency and media partners evaluate creative impact, media planning efficacy, campaign performance, and make better decisions about their media allocation."

Glossary

  • Awareness (rate): The number of times the video environment is moused over by the user while the pre-roll plays and then divided by all the impressions served. The event is counted once per impression.
  • Engagement (rate): The first click by the user to the iRoll unit and then divided by all the impressions served. This can either be an interactive slate open event, or click-thru depending on the format of the unit. The event is counted once per impression.
  • Time Earned: The average time in seconds a user spends interacting with the unit while the pre-roll video is automatically paused in the background. Note, iRoll Apps units do not consistently require the pausing of the pre-roll video in the background, and therefore may not generate the Time Earned metric.
  • Completion (rate): Impression logged immediately upon completion of the video play, divided by all impressions served.
  • Ad Viewed (percent): The average duration of the pre-roll video watched by users, calculated as a percentage.
  • CTR: A click directing users to a new web page and then divided by all impressions served.
