Mobile Video Wall

The Mobile Video Wall has a Video Tall Banner in the top slot paired with a freeform 320x300 unit below the fold. Both of these ads feature an intro video that will resolve to a video slate and one CTA. When the user clicks on the video slate it will launch a full video in the IMDb video player. This product lives at the top of the page and below the fold on the IMDb homepage, title pages, and name pages on mobile web, IOS app, and Android app.

These units are the mobile equivalent of the Video Wall product, which consists of the Desktop Video Wall and the Tablet Banner. These units are always sold together.

  • All timelines begin when design assets are received and approved by IMDb.
  • All timelines end when the ad unit is live on IMDb properties.
