InSkin is a new rich media ad format designed for online video. Ads wrap around the video player on a publisher’s website and remain visible for the entire video duration. When engaged by the user the InSkin ad springs into action, pausing the video and delivering a powerful experience through an expanded creative. Once the user has finished engaging they simply click the close button, InSkin retreats and the original video content resumes.



This new advertising format dominates the page and allows for an extended creative message.Advertisers can combine a leaderboard banner and skyscraper on the same page as the billboard, giving an extremely impactful roadblock.
