Overlay.tv Received $4.6 Million for Interactive Video Advertising

Overlay.tv raised $4.6 Million in their Series A from Celtic House Venture Partners, EdgeStone Capital Partners and Tech Capital Partners.

What does Overlay.tv do?

Overlay.tv inserts advertisements into video that you can interact with, so you may watch, click and get.

VCU says:

The Overlay.tv platform allows viewers to interact with online video. Publishers can monetize their video and advertisers have a new contextually relevant tool for delivering their message.

Viewers are able to opt-in to receive “overlays” which provide contextual information about the content being viewed. The overlay technology allows any image in a video to be ‘hyper-enabled’ and allows a viewer to click on the image, right in the video, and take any number of desired actions that are directly associated with the context of the image being viewed.

The overlays can be embedded in external web pages, online shops, blogs and social network profiles. With overlay advertising there is no pre-roll, no post-roll, no banners, and no changes to the video at all.

Authors, content owners and e-commerce providers are able to offer advertisers a measurable return on investment for their product placements, without increasing the costs associated with video production.
