HTML5 offers a set of rich animation and interactive content features that work universally across any platform or device type.
HTML5 ads render just like web pages, in contrast to Flash (.SWF), which requires you to have a Flash player (plugin) installed.
Create HTML5 ads
To build HTML5 ads, work with a developer. If that's not an option, IAB lists a few helpful tools, but even these require some technical know-how.
After you create HTML5 ads following these guidelines, reach out to your Account Manager or the Customer Support team to help upload your ads.
