IAB Tech Lab releases final Dynamic Content Ad Standard
The schema is now available to create, serve and measure programmatic personalized ads.
After a public comment period, the IAB Tech Lab has updated and ratified the standard for creating dynamic content ads, first introduced last October.
The schema will enable developers, ad content management systems, ad servers and media platforms to efficiently create, serve and measure ads that are dynamically personalized based on user factors such as gender, location, weather and language.
A demo tool shows examples of the standard in use to create a dynamic based on gender and weather, geography and language, as well as audio examples. Users can generate the JSON code for each example.
The standard is designed to meet the requirements of current ad formats, and Diaz Nesamoney, founder and CEO of Jivox and co-chair of the IAB Tech Lab Dynamic Content Ad Standards Committee, believes it could probably be used in future formats. “I am sure we will soon see Chatbot ad formats using this standard and, who knows, maybe even VR ads using this standard,” said Nesamoney in a statement.
The dynamic content ad standard is available for download here.
