  8. 8. What is MRAID?• Mobile Rich-media Ad Interface Definitions• A common API for mobile rich media advertising• Enables rich media ads in mobile apps to communicate with the “container” in which they are running• Pre-MRAID, a single ad needed multiple revisions to run across multiple apps/rich media vendors• With MRAID, a rich media ad should behave well as long as its running in an MRAID-compliant app/SDK• Speeds creative development, reduces cost and complexity, encourages more rich media advertising7
  9. 9. What is MRAID not?• NOT a Software Development Kit (SDK)• NOT a standard ad unit (or set of ad units)• NOT exhaustive• NOT meant to stifle innovation or competition in the mobile marketplace8

Why did the IAB Launch MRAID?• Idea first raised at an IAB Mobile Committee meeting in late 2010• Other efforts underway to harmonize/standardize rich media ads• IAB looked on as a fair mediator• Relevant experience from online video (VAST and VPAID)• A significant share of the rich media industry agreed to participate in the IAB process to create MRAID 1.0.9
  11. 11. MRAID 1.0 Scope and Content• MRAID 1.0 supports basic expandable and interstitial ads• Simple but very important capabilities• Ad designer writes the ad using MRAID• Enables the ad to request information from the SDK, and to tell the SDK what it needs to do• A balance between consistency and flexibility10
  12. 12. MRAID 1.0 Flexibility v. Consistency• Supports both 1-part and 2-part expandables• Provides general guidance for how the SDK should position ads onscreen• Requires a consistent location for a close control• Requires the SDK (app) supply the close indicator by default11
