OMID Ad Support

Pioneered by the Interactive Advertising Bureau, the Open Measurement standard for video in the mobile app is a giant leap for viewability measurement. Open Measurement gives publishers transparency and control to manage the third-party verification scripts rather than running them through the ad creatives themselves, where they cannot be accessed. Our Android 4.1.0 release brings out of the box OMID support for this industry-wide specification through our VAST ad client.
