Parallel requests are supported for typical mediation as well as Unified Bidding.
  • Impression counting changes for banner ads: Smaato’s NextGen SDK supports the rendered impression counting method, which means the impression beacon is fired once the banner or MREC is added to the web-view, similar to the counting methodology of the current SDK. Note that for Interstitial and Rewarded Video ads, the impressions are still counted when the ad is considered viewable (at least 1% of the ad markup/video is shown).
