According to Smaato, the SDK offers support for banners, interstitials, rich media, interstitial video, and rewarded video, and an upcoming release will add support native, vertical video, and playable rewarded ads.

“Our development teams have been hard at work to bring publishers a truly next-generation SDK and we’re excited to finally open this product up to mobile publishers around the world,” said Arndt Groth, CEO at Smaato. “We believe the NextGen SDK will drive increased publisher earnings while attracting additional premium advertisers to the Smaato platform.”

We developed it with fraud protection, viewability, and other state-of-the-art features built-in, but we didn’t stop there,” said Freddy Friedman, Chief Product Officer at Smaato. “We’re also offering the industry’s first true in-app header bidding solution in Smaato’s Unified Bidding.”
