Iab standard banner

The vast possibilities of rich media continue to grow by leaps and bounds—and the sexy, innovative and awesome ad solutions we see in the market continue to wow us, including new IAB filmstrip Rising Stars examples.

Every now and then we like to list out a few of the cooler ads we stumble across, and this is one of those times. It’s nice to see what creative minds can do with emerging technology like the filmstrips Rising Stars format, a cutting edge format that integrates the best that rich media ads has to offer: scrolling, video, sound, and tons of panel and content options.

Here are three of the most awesome filmstrip Rising Stars examples we have seen lately (including one of our own.) Enjoy.

1) Pixel filmstrip by Hook

To support the launch of Google’s new Chromebook Pixel laptop, the product team there approached Hook to come up with a fast rich media solution using IAB filmstrip Rising Stars format and film footage that already existed from other campaigns. The result is a beautifully engaging experience with many qualities we like:

2) San Diego by Mering Carson 

We have always held to the truth that to be engaging, rich media solutions must rely on all the many channels and technologies within its reach. IAB’s filmstrip Rising Stars format enables you to combine it all: video, interaction, voice, sounds, gamification ADS and so much more.

That’s why we liked this San Diego tourism banner. It has video. It has games. It allows the user to scroll vertically through different experiences, and more.

In the end, the ad allows the user to really experience the joys and beauty of San Diego—all in a rich media ad experience. Tourism just got a really cool, rich media sales tool.

3) Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini by Digitaland

Here at Digitaland we have many flimstrip Rising Stars examples and have recently completed a production that we couldn’t resist including in the list. Mainly because, like the examples listed before, it integrates all the best that this new technology allows.

To promote the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini, this ad was build with the new Iab standard banner filmstrip format to allow for all the best that rich media can offer:
