Product Theater Lightbox

Overview

The Product Theater unit is exactly that: A theater showcase for your product. Surround your product with videos, specs, image galleries, store locators, and more. Built using the latest innovative ad technology, this showcase is an audience-targetable solution geared towards influencing purchase decisions.

The Product Theater can launch from any standard IAB banner (300×250, 728×90 or 300×600) to a large-sized Lightbox. This expansive canvas enables advertisers to deliver a wide range of content to audiences including video, relevant content, social conversations and other multimedia.
