CHICAGO –  For many publishers, creating scale around video production, coupled with  getting those videos watched, is not easy. For advertisers, there is highly limited inventory, with about 4 percent of video pre-roll suitable for top tier brands, says Jim Daily Managing Director of North America for video ad tech platform Teads.

Daily says the revenue opportunity for publishers, and the supply solution for marketers, is for video ads appear outside of the video player, and on the Web page or on mobile in various rich media units.   Teads, which recently merged with eBuzzing, provides these solutions to hundreds of publishers, brands and most of the major ad agency holding companies.
