Pressbox (Press Release) - ValueClick launches instant streaming media adverts
through partnership with EyeWonder

First European pay-for-performance streaming media adverts

London, 22nd June 2001 – ValueClick Europe, the world’s leading provider of performance advertising solutions, has today partnered with EyeWonder, the creator of instant streaming video technologies for Internet and wireless devices, to offer streaming video and audio adverts as part of ValueClick’s UK suite of advertising products. Powered by EyeWonder’s EYERIS technology, EyeMedia streaming media adverts load seamlessly without the need for any end user plug-in or media players, from as little as a 28k modem. The solution provides marketers with the opportunity to extend their traditional television messages to the online audience.

ValueClick is the first UK network to provide streaming media adverts on a pay-for-performance basis, further enhancing the attractiveness of this highly dynamic and interactive product offering by ensuring maximum return on investment for marketers. ValueClick will offer the adverts across its entire network of 3,500 UK sites on a cost-per-click (CPC) pricing model ranging from 1.00 to 1.60. This provides ValueClick’s customers with a highly cost-effective mechanism for increasing response to, and recall of, online campaigns.

Eyewonder’s EyeMedia solution allows advertisers to easily adapt current video based advertising into online creative in the form of banners, skyscrapers, or pop-ups.
“The potential for much more creativity in online advertising is needed, and now that there is the technology to make video and audio adverts appear immediately on web-pages, the medium will come alive,” commented Rupert Staines, Managing Director, ValueClick Europe. “By partnering with EyeWonder, we can add a different dimension to advertisers online campaigns, which will be as powerful as TV, yet harness the interactivity and measurability of online advertising. As with all ValueClick products, our customers only pay for measurable results.”
