Flash animations and videos in online banner advertisements typically run for 30 seconds. But as the user scrolls down the web page, the advertisement moves up and out of the top of the browser window. It is then no longer visible. A banner is typically visible within the browser window for less than 10 seconds before it is scrolled out. Users might see the same banner again when they open a new page, but the animation or video will restart from the beginning. Since users don’t see the animation continuously from beginning to end, they don’t understand the advertiser’s message and the advertiser’s budget is wasted. Relona solves this problem by synchronising animations and videos across multiple page views. An animation or video that starts on one web page continues uninterrupted through subsequent pages until the user sees the entire animation; click-through rates increase by 2x and video completion rates increase by 8x.
