Thirdpresence, a leading mobile in-app video SSP, announced today that Sizmek has certified the company's video player for HTML5 VPAID video advertising. HTML5 VPAID is an important part of the growing mobile in-app video advertising market, because it allows advertisers to accurately measure video viewability and add interactive elements to the video creative.

"Video viewability is a key issue for advertisers," said Markus Bäckström, CEO, Thirdpresence. "Sizmek's certification means advertisers can feel confident in buying our in-app video inventory. We are pleased to be able to offer HTML5 VPAID as the marketplace for premium in-app brand advertising expands.
