Video parade in desktop

Materials should be delivered 5 working days prior to the campaign start.

Improve Media builds the functionality of the format from the image and video materials the client sends.

File format: MP4
Aspect ratio: Horizontal or rectangular videos can be fitted on case-by-case basis.
Size: Max 30 seconds. Recommended size 2MB and maximum size 10MB.
Other image files: One 980×400 px wallpaper picture, on top of which the video is built. Additionally one banner image is needed for the start and end frame of the video. The banner picture must be in the same aspect ratio as the video. File format for the images is either JPG or PNG.

A small logo picture in PNG format can also be delivered, if wanted in the implementation.

Floating Banner

Materials should be delivered 5 working days prior to the campaign start.

Improve Media builds the functionality of the format from the image and video materials the client sends. If wanted, video can be included in the implementation of the ad format.

Banner: max 980×600 px
Start frame of the video: 640×360 px
Video: 640×360 MP4/WEBM, max 30 seconds. Recommended size 2MB and maximum size 10MB.

Image material can be delivered in either JPEG of PNG format. If the materials are delivered already prepared or any additional functionality will be built in the format, the materials must be sent completely compatible with the Adform template. See the instructions on how to make the materials compatible with Adform. If Improve Media is to build the implementation, the materials cannot be delivered as tags.

Floor Ad

Materials should be delivered 5 working days prior to the campaign start.

Improve Media builds the functionality of the format from the image and video materials the client sends. The format can be run by utilising the sticky part, which is built on the bottom of the site. The sticky part works as a tactical driver. The format also works as an expanding banner: by clicking the image, a 980×400 banner will open onto the bottom of the sticky part. It’s possible to build a video in the expanding part.

Sticky part: 1280×70 px*
Expanding part: 980×400 px
Start frame of the video: 636×264 px
Video: 636 x 264 px MP4/WEBM, max 30 seconds. Recommended size 2MB, maximum 10MB.

Image material can be delivered in either JPEG of PNG format. If the materials are delivered already prepared or any additional functionality will be built in the format, the materials must be sent completely compatible with the Adform template. See the instructions on how to make the materials compatible with Adform. If Improve Media is to build the implementation, the materials cannot be delivered as tags.

*Please note that the banner will be scaled by the width of the browser. When scaled on a bigger screen the banner will be cut a few pixels from the top and the bottom of the image. We recommend placing important texts and logos in the middle of the banner.

Parade and wallpaper

Materials should be delivered 5 working days prior to the campaign start.

Improve Media builds the functionality of the format from the image and video materials the client sends. The site structures vary, which means that the wallpaper appears differently on different sites. In the visual planning, it is worth to consider that the wallpaper margins might be narrower on some sites while being wider on the others.

Parade: 980 x 400 px
Wallapaper: 1680×1200 px

Wallpaper can be sent in either JPEG or PNG format. Parade cannot be run through a tag but it should be made following the Adform HTML5 instructions or delivered as an image file.

In-Read video

Materials should be delivered 5 working days prior to the campaign start.

Only a video from the client is needed for the implementation.

File format: Preferably a MOV file, alternatively MP4, MPG, WMV or AVI files are also accepted.
Aspect ratio: Recommended 1024×576 px, minimum 640×360 px. Aspect ratio should be either 16:9 or 4:3.
Size: Max 30 seconds and 200MB.

Please note that the material cannot be an anamorphic video. Start and end frames should not be black.

If the materials have not been delivered to aineisto@improvemedia.fi according to the instructions above or if there are technical problems with them, we will send the materials back. We aim to inform the advertiser well before the campaign start in case there are problems with the ad materials. We cannot promise to inform the advertiser in good time if the ad materials have not been delivered in time.

Improve Media has the right to deny to use advertisement that is improper or against the Finnish law. Improve Media is not responsible if there is a delay in campaign start due to late delivery of campaign materials.
