Frequently Asked Questions

Technology

What is the “unrecalled functionality”?

A similar idea has already proved to be a huge success. This is the “companion banner” by YouTube, which provides continued brand presence after a video ends. YouTube’s “companion banner” allows the viewer to click on it anytime, monetizing the number of views. In general, both IntapTV and YouTube provide links to unrecalled information for viewers. Unrecalled advertisements (unrecalled ads) are pieces of visual digital information in the form of digital signals that a viewer for some reason misses a moment to memorize the expired information (for example, the TV ad had run and had not been copied down or memorized, etc.). The patented IntapTV technology works on all devices and any TV while YouTube’s “companion banner” works only on YouTube and only on a few devices and not on TV due to patent infringement.

Why is your patented “unrecalled functionality” so important?

According to Google, as seen in the diagram below, viewers only start searching after a TV ad has run. That’s why our patented “unrecalled functionality” which allows viewers to get all information about a recently watched ad is so important.

How does the IntapTV technology provide showing companion ads on mobile devices when viewers watch smart TV?

When a viewer watches a smart TV, he/she can use the mobile app to get more information about video ads currently or recently seen on the TV. IntapTV provides an automatic request to the server of the service provider immediately when the viewer opens the mobile app. As a result, information about the interested ads appears on the mobile app in just a second. This works similarly to YouTube’s companion banner but divided between a smart TV and a mobile device.

Do you provide serving personalized ads in cases where people watch TV together?
Yes, we do. To better target TV ads in cases when people watch TV together, we are using multiple sub-accounts associated under one TV streaming service and player provider’s user ID. Here is an example of how it works:
Provide serving personalized ads in cases where people watch TV together
Who owns the data?

The Streaming service and player providers retain ownership over their interaction data. They can use this primary data to target audiences with more personalized advertisements.

What standards does the technology comply with?

The IntapTV technology complies with:

  • All SCTE standards;
  • ATSC 3.0 and DVB;
  • MPEG-DASH and HLS;
  • VAST, VMAP and VPAID.
Do you have any prototype?

We do not have to make a prototype because all our future partners have a software development team in-house or they are using a third-party software development team.

Does the technology only applies to TV ads?

It applies not only to TV ads but to other programming as well, like shows, news and the like.

What else can your patented and patent pending method work for?

Digital Radio and DOOH around the world.

Finances

Who gets money from the advertisers on a pay-per-click basis?

The Streaming service and player providers should receive money from advertisers on a pay-per-click basis according to the data collected by the IntapTV technology.

Who determines the cost per click?

The Streaming service and player providers should determine a reasonable cost per click as per the following example. The average click-through rate for paid search ads is about 2%. IntapTV technology does not have any click-through rates on paid search ads, meaning all clicks are paid clicks. Based on that, TV advertisers can spend X times less money for each click. For example, if an insurance company were to run a TV ad which created an increased search volume but then spent $50 per click on paid search ads while on IntapTV they would spend X times less per click.

How does the IntapTV technology affect the subscriber’s monthly fees?

By earning more from advertisers, the streaming service and player providers can reduce or eliminate user subscription fees to attract additional viewers from other platforms.

How many times can the shares of an existing media company rise by implemented IntapTV technology?

By implemented IntapTV technology, you are automatically being valued like a tech company. It turns out that the public markets value of your company is very similar to a typical tech company, for example, an Alphabet, Inc., Facebook, Inc., and others.
