Local Corporation Rolls Out New Features Within Rovion Ad Management Platform

Local Corporation (NASDAQ:LOCM), a leading online local media company, today announced the release of several new features for its groundbreaking, code-free Rovion Ad Management Platform.

Users can now utilize Rovion’s multi-ad deployment and syncing capabilities that make it easy to choreograph complex interactions between multiple rich media ad units on a single page served via single or multiple ad tags.

Rovion's intelligent ad loading, another new feature within the platform, saves users significant effort by automatically resizing images and videos as they work, while conserving crucial page-load time through selective loading of only those dynamic ad elements that are needed.

“With the addition of these innovative features, the Rovion Ad Management Platform is well positioned as the go-to source for agencies and publishers looking to efficiently create and distribute complex rich media ads with a single platform,” said Michael Sawtell, Local Corporation, president and COO.

“Local Corporation continues to challenge the status quo and change the way the industry creates and distributes rich media ads and campaigns,” added Sawtell.

The Rovion Ad Management Platform is a cloud-based, customizable solution with drag-and-drop functionality that enables the advertising ecosystem to create and publish original rich media ads without code or Adobe Flash® authoring software.

According to the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB), display-related advertising revenues hit a historic high last year, totaling $11.1 billion or 35% of all advertising revenues in 2011 and the growth is predicted to continue over the next several years, according to BIA Kelsey.
