Expandable Medium Rectangle

What’s this? Get those ads booming! The expandable Medium Rectangle is a flash banner that extends over a portion of the website, usually at eye-level, to deliver the message within.
The benefits By cutting into the viewing path and covering the site content momentarily, the viewer’s attention is focused on the expandable Medium Rectangle. The nature and dimensions of the ad allows ample creativity in execution so advertisers are able to flaunt their product or services in innovative manners that will leave deep imprints on viewers’ minds.

 Ad Mechanism:
 1. Upon page-load, the ad unit appears in its collapsed form on the right of the page.
 2. The collapsed unit will expand to the left upon click from its position and the full animation will play.
 3. The ‘Collapse’ button on the expanded unit allows viewers to stop the ad at any point of the animation.
 4. On clicking of the “Close” button on the Expanded unit, it closes back to the Medium Rectangle unit.
 5. For ads with video, the video will restart each time the expanded unit is opened.
