OmniVirt Opens Monetization Platform to All Virtual Reality Apps

SAN FRANCISCO, CA(31 May 2017)

Today, OmniVirt is expanding its platform to provide a monetization solution for Virtual Reality Inventory. While previous announcements and case studies from OmniVirt have called out work with The New York Times, Time Inc, AOL, and many other traditional publishers to power 360° Video advertising for web inventory, with this announcement OmniVirt’s platform can be used to monetize a publisher’s Virtual Reality inventory as well.

While publishers have invested into VR, the industry has lacked technology to connect web and VR inventory together, creating limited scale and monetization for VR providers. Now, both traditional publishers and VR developers can monetize their VR inventory and deliver campaigns that scale for brands.

See our demos below:

  1. For publishers, OmniVirt supports ad serving into VR apps: Intro Video, Demo

To date, OmniVirt has delivered over 500M 360° VR ad impressions, supporting high profile campaigns for clients like Toyota, Infiniti, Samsung, Netflix, Chevron, Universal Pictures and Johnnie Walker. Now these campaigns can scale into VR inventory as well.

OmniVirt’s mission is to make it easy for publishers and advertisers to launch and monetize their VR experiences and campaigns. Now, with one platform both traditional publisher’s with a VR app and emerging VR developer’s looking to monetize their experience with native VR formats can get started with 3 simple steps:

  1. Sign Up for an OmniVirt Account at www.omnivirt.com
  2. Integrate the OmniVirt SDK
