Go Big Video
The Go Big Video player is a skinnable expandable ad unit focused on video and awareness. It is an IAB standard 728×90 leaderboard that expands down to a large 728×500 video player with playlist. Hosting up to four videos, the oversized video window creates a higher engagement rate than standard banner video players and is targetable to the advertiser’s audience. The Go Big also incorporates social sharing buttons and can include CTAs such as “Buy Now” buttons or white paper downloads.
