Sydney-based creative ad tech company PLAYGROUND XYZ, who use its proprietary platform to author innovative new types of mobile ad formats, today launch a new format called Border Control.
In what they claim is a worldwide first, the ad format builds a ‘virtual wall’ around the ad, helping advertisers stay clear of certain content.
Said Rob Hall CEO (above) of PLAYGROUND XYZ: “Advertisers and users alike need to protect their interests. We thought building a visual wall around content that may be upsetting or ‘non-desirable’ would certainly strike a chord with the masses.”
The ad scans the page for a range of keywords and then applies a visual technique to cover them up.
The ad is developed in sync with the company’s plans to launch in the US.
