Key Brid Video Features

  • VAST compatibility
    Our features support for VAST 4.0 tags. It can playback any kind of VAST ad template as long as the creative is HTML5 compatible. This feature eliminates slow load times, allowing for a buffer free ad experience.
  • BridTV GEO Module
    We offer you a chance to locate and zero in on website visitors by IP address within the BridTV Video Player.
  • Header Bidding or Video Player Bidding
    Creates an improved consumer experience, improved monetization and best of all reduced latency, all thanks to header bidding.
  • Advertise your content
    Add pre-rolls, mid-rolls, post-rolls or overlays to monetize you content!
  • Ad Tag Waterfalling
    Activating this in our player means that if an ad is not returned in a VAST tag or an ad errors out, the player cascades to another tag and tries to play the next ad. Waterfalling kicks off, the player goes through a list of 4 ad tags and if none of these returns an ad from any of available tags, content playback will be initiated.
  • Full-screen mode
    Supported across all latest browsers. Browsers which do not have implemented true fullscreen mode for HTML5, full-windowed mode is used instead.
  • HTML5 video benefits
    No browser plugin, no Flash dependencies!
    You can also jump anywhere in the video without having to wait for it to buffer.
