The Billboard HTML5 ad format is rendered like a mini web page. It works flawlessly on all browsers and mobile operating systems. It also reduces development and operational costs. Agency/Creative-developers who are developing the HTML5 creative should make the required changes before providing it to ZEDO for it to work correctly.
