Video Adspaces

Here you will find the details for setting up Video Adspaces in the Smaato Publisher Platform (SPX).

You will learn how to create a new Video Adspace and edit existing Video Adspaces. We have also provided specific details for publishers integrated with the Smaato SDK and the MoPub SDK.

New Video Adspace


Creating Your Adspace

First, go to Inventory

Select your App listed in the column on the left.

On the right side of the dashboard click the button + New Adspace.


Adspace Values & Settings

Next, you will need to enter the mandatory details as indicated by the asterisk (*).

First, you need to enter a Name for your Adspace.

Then select the ad format of Video Only.

Under Dimension, you can select from the following options:

    • Banner Phone (32ox50)
    • Banner Tablet (728×90)
    • Medium Rectangle (300×250)
    • Fullscreen Interstitial Portrait (320×480)
    • Fullscreen Interstitial Landscape (480×320)
    • Tablet Fullscreen Interstitial Portrait (768×1024)
    • Tablet Fullscreen Interstitial Landscape (1024×768)

Next, select the Video Type:

    • Instream Preroll
    • Instream Midroll
    • Instream Postroll
    • Outstream
    • Interstitial
    • Rewarded


Video Additional Settings

These additional settings are mandatory in order to save your new Adspace. In case you do not know all of the details at the moment of creating the Adspace, you can always edit at a later time (See Editing Existing Adspace below). 

If your Adspace supports companion ads, you will need to indicate the ad type:

  • All
  • Static
  • HTML
  • iFrame
  • Select the Companion Ad Size

You will also need to select the companion ad Size: The size of the companion ad will depend on the size of the video Adspace dimension.

If the Adspace doesn’t support companion ads, then you need to indicate:

  • If the Adspace supports VPAID
  • If the Adspace supports skippable video ads 

Once you have reviewed the additional settings, you then just need to click Save.

If you have more Adspaces to add, click the button to Save and Create New Adspace.


Edit Existing Adspace

If you have already created Adspaces and just need to edit them:

Go to Inventory.

Select the App that you want to edit.

Then hover the cursor over the Adspace name and click the settings dial to the right of the adspace.

Once you have made your changes, simply click Save.
