- Game/Reveal: Gamifies the creative experience; and
- Dynamic/Addressable Creative: Store locators and dealer locators that direct consumers to where they should buy products.
Units within the BrightLine suite of ad products plug into Samsung’s user interface and smart TV operating system, complementing Samsung Ads’ existing inventory of in-stream, native and cross-platform ads.
Early adopters. Early interest within the new Samsung Ads ad units is coming from advertisers in CPG, Automotive and Entertainment, we’re told by a Samsung Ads source.
