We are pleased to be partnering with GoFish, as they are the leading platform in original online video programming aggregation and distribution
SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) August 29, 2007
The partnership enables GoFish to match relevant, text-based ads with its online video content using adap.tv's proprietary analytical software. The technology analyzes video content in real-time and instantaneously matches it with appropriate ads. adap.tv's in-video advertising network currently serves some of the most popular online video sites on the Web, including GoFish's Network of approximately 8 million unique users.
Last week online video site YouTube announced the introduction of semi-transparent overlay ads at the bottom of select video clips. In-stream text ads served on the GoFish Network through adap.tv's platform will be similar to YouTube's new ad feature, however, the GoFish ads will be contextually relevant through the use of adap.tv's proprietary software.
"The monetization of video content has been one of the biggest challenges posed by the advent of online video," said Tabreez Verjee, president of GoFish. "Our partnership with adap.tv assists GoFish in creating a compelling platform for advertisers in order to allow them to reach target demographics, and does so in a way that does not detract from the user experience."
"We are pleased to be partnering with GoFish, as they are the leading platform in original online video programming aggregation and distribution," said Amir Ashkenazi, CEO of adap.tv. "This is a mutually beneficial strategic partnership that combines GoFish's content and reach with adap.tv's contextual advertising solution to enhance the consumer experience while increasing ad revenue."
