For more information:
- To create an interactive video, a publisher can access Adways through a web browser interface and paste in a link to any video already published online.
- Interactive elements that can be overlayed include a photo gallery, e-commerce interface, video within a video, text, quizzes, audio, images, a Twitter feed or even a full website.
- The finished interactive videos can be embedded on other websites. Because Adways’ embed code is based on HTML5, the viewing experience is consistent across a wide range of web browsers and devices.
