The Agency Working Group evaluated over six dozen entries to arrive at the five creative ad product concepts that will become the IAB's first-ever Digital Video ad format standards.
"This attests that DG, the world's leading ad management and distribution platform, truly offers a cross-platform solution to advertisers globally," said Gianluca Milano, VP, Sales Engineering and Professional Services, DG.
According to Peter Minnium, Head of Brand Initiatives, IAB, "DG MediaMind's entries scored among the top in the "Ad Control Bar" and "TimeSync" categories.Rising Star Ad Control Bar: AdAPPTER

The evaluation process included quantitative scoring to get to a short-list and then qualitative discussion to determine the final winners. In this latter phase, in addition to further culling, entries were clustered into the five winning ad product concepts. This is why there are twelve winning companies and five Digital Video Rising Stars.
DG MediaMind has been invited and will join the IAB Digital Video Ad Control Bar Rising Star Working Group and IAB Digital Video TimeSync Rising Star Working Group with fellow digital video innovators to define, build, and implement these Digital Video Rising Stars.For the full press release on the IAB site, click here.
