The Interstitial is a full-screen ad format that launches before displaying a publisher's content. It usually launches with an overlay that resizes to the dimensions of the screen, closes after a defined period of time, and optionally, disables scrolling of the publisher's page.

The Interstitial includes the following attributes:

  • Maximum size is 10 MB. (The initial load can be set at 200 KB.) For more information, see

    Add Polite Load to your HTML Ads.

    Note

    Notes:

    • While Sizmek Ad Suite (SAS) ads can be up to 10 MB, ads must also follow the specifications of the publishers or DSPs that will ultimately run the ad.

    • Maximum ad size can be increased beyond 10 MB upon request; however, you should check with your media partner to verify that the ad will not be rejected by the publisher.

  • Ad can contain multiple user interactions.

  • Ad can contain video.
