VPAID is a a rich media creative that is delivered as an additional media asset type within a VAST tag. VPAID is typically used for ad interactivity in a publisher’s in-stream video player. VPAID creatives can pause or mute the video player and bring up their own content, including interactive options. Similar to VAST, a publisher needs to be VPAID compliant in order to render VPAID assets correctly.
Campaign Manager only supports linear VPAID creatives.
A linear VPAID creative appears by itself, not alongside publisher content. It can appear before, between, or after the publisher's video. For example, a VPAID linear creative might interrupt a publisher's cartoon to display a video commercial with interactive graphics overlaying the advertiser's video content.
Get started in Campaign Manager
First get VPAID creatives from Studio. VPAID is a rich media creative, so you cannot upload it to Campaign Manager manually. Instead, you must set up a connection between Campaign Manager and Studio, called an advertiser association.
If your Campaign Manager advertiser already has the VPAID creatives you need, start setting them up.
