GAD Process: Eyeblaster Training

September, 17 2009



  • This deck is designed to capture the production, trafficking, and reporting considerations for campaigns using Eyeblaster to traffic rich media – in particular, BIEB.

  • Included are:

    • Production Considerations

    • Trafficking Workflow Summary

    • Data Collection & Reporting

Will eyeblaster be used in your market

Will Eyeblaster be used in your Market?

The decision of whether to use the Eyeblaster (EB) version of media or standard flash file is a local decision.

If adopted in your market, Eyeblaster will issue local credentials to WUN subs to access their local accounts.

In addition to the usual delivery of files thru the Xinet system (swfs, FLAs, fonts, etc), the creative agency will also deliver the following:

  • EBC file. This handles all of the Eyeblaster settings and has the FLAs contained in a single package.

  • EBS file. This will allow you to upload the ad to your local Eyeblaster account without editing the Flash files.

  • Eyeblaster preview of the original ad. This will allow you to see how it should function.

Are flash edits needed

Are Flash edits needed?

If no:

Edits can be done using the Eyeblaster’s Smart Versioning tool.

Smart Versioning is an online tool that will not require you to purchase fonts or recompile Flash. Edits to both copy and images can be done within the tool.

Note: If you need to change the publisher’s specs or make fundamental animation changes you will need to edit the Flash. This method will be explained below.

7)Double click on any of the items you want to edit, make your changes and press “Apply”.

8)When all edits are done, click “Save” and we’re done.

Are flash edits needed1

Are Flash edits needed?

If yes (resizes, market specific edits):

Local sub can open the EBC file with all needed assets and edit in Flash using the Eyeblaster Workshop to preserve all of the settings.

Finished assets can be previewed locally and uploaded directly to the Eyeblaster platform from Workshop.





Before the Ads can be assigned to specific placements by UM, WUN teams must:

  • Complete RIO Preparation

  • Enter Naming Information

  • Enter Destination URLs

  • Provide AD ID to UM

    Before tags are delivered to publishers, WUN teams must QA the assets against the publisher specs.

Rio preparation

Rio Preparation

The Microsoft RIO Integration involves sending specific “cell code” information to an Atlas tag and to a Microsoft tag for their tracking purposes. The implementation is accomplished by the integration of two custom scripts.

  • The first script msft_interaction.js was developed by Eyeblaster and utilizes some of our custom event handlers. Specifically, it uses our onHandleInteraction event which is triggered every time an interaction is triggered. The script checks to see if the interaction triggered in the list of RIO interactions (see above). If it is, it sends tracking information to an Atlas tag and the Microsoft tag. The information sent is Interaction, Placement ID and Cell Code.

  • The second script RioTracking2_Rmt.js was developed by Microsoft and is a JavaScript library we use to make the calls to the two tracking tags.

Ad tag modification:


vargstrEbPreLoadScripts = "msft_interaction.js";


<script src="[timestamp]"></script>


<a href="" target="_blank"><imgsrc="" border=0 width=300 height=250></a>


Naming conventions

Naming Conventions

Recommended Eyeblaster naming conventions as will be reflected in reporting:

  • Campaign Name

  • Placement Name (Section Details)

  • Ad Name

  • Panel Name

  • Video Asset Name

    Campaign Name

    CountryCode_ CampaignName_Details

    UK_ itPro_FirstRelease

    Placement Name



    Ad Name



    Panel Name


    Product _Panel1

    Video Asset Name



We are holding on Eyeblaster recommended naming conventions until we confirm compatibility with Atlas / RIO reporting.

Where does the url go

Where does the URL go?

Two tabs back from Smart Versioning you will find “Actions and Tracking”. Open this tab and you will find the default clickthrough URL. 3rd party tracking can also be done from here.

Instead of packaging files, building instructions and URLs, all that would need to be delivered is an Ad ID number. All asset QA and verification can be done on the Eyeblaster platform.

Hand off to um1

Where do I find the Ad ID number?

Log in to the Eyeblaster website.

Select the “Creative” tab on the far left and then click on “Ads.”

You will see a full listing of all ads in your account. Your Ad ID number is available here.




Ad qa overview

Ad QA – overview

QA is handled through the Ad Campaign Manager (ACM).

QA is done on two dimensions:

• General preview – to check the expected behavior of the final ad on websites (expansion, close, clickthrough etc.)

• Assets preview – to check proper setup and functionality of each asset (default image\flash, rich, panels, video etc.)

Publisher specs

Publisher Specs

If you need to create a lowest common denominator spec for your region, Eyeblaster has a Publisher Spec tool available. This is found in the “Tools” tab under “Search Specs.”

Select your sites from the list and then click “View Specs.” You will be presented with a web version showing each individual spec in a column and also a LCD column. You also have the option to download as an XL document.

A couple of particulars

A couple of particulars . . .

Atlas Reporting - both Atlas click tags and post-click "conversion" tagging will function normally and data will be retrievable from atlas.

RIO Reporting - Eyeblaster has worked with RIO team to implement minor adjustments to allow for standard RIO reporting.  RIO team also working to import behavioral data from Eyeblaster so ALL data from Eyeblaster would be available in RIO.
