Smart Ad Inventory
The OpenMediation SDK equipped with smart ad inventory mechanism and optimized SDK initialization pre-loading mechanism, provides the best mediation solution for app developers. For Rewarded Video, Interstitial and Promotion Ad, the SDK will cache ads automatically and maintain ad inventory regularly, such as pre-loading after initialization, loading after ad served and timing loading etc. You have no need to invoke load method to cache ads by yourselves anymore.
Header bidding in compliance with IAB specifications has been supported to maximize revenue through realtime bidding. OpenMediation has built-in support for AdTiming, Mintegral, Helium, Vungle and PubNative bidding. The client-based bid auction solution brings flexibility and convenience by eliminating the need for an auction server. The Auction process works perfectly together with traditional waterfall. Before the waterfall starts, the auction returns a bid winner from AdNetworks that support header bidding. The waterfall winner, coming out of the waterfall process that is largely based on historical data, is compared with the bid winner to eventually determine the final winner.
