Epoch is an ad building tool that makes it easy to create animated multi-screen HTML5 ads.
Flash has dominated the world of digital advertising for long, so there’s an understandable reluctance when you try to make the army of Flash developers & designers shift to something else.
But Epoch is serious competition, providing ad builders & designers a lot of functionality to create animated HTML5 ads without worrying if their ads will work on any screen, any device, or ad server.
Adcade’s framework is able to replicate any & all animations that can be done in Flash, while also being able to tap into the native device functionalities of smartphones, Tablets, digital TV & any connected device. Adcade has removed the mobile limitations of flash-based digital ads. Users can simply output ads that will intelligently respond to every characteristic of a device, placement & the ad itself, regardless of media. When the Adcade HTML5 ad building platform was launched in May 2014, Rob Cromer, CEO of Adcade, claimed that Adcade would make Flash irrelevant for digital advertising.
This cross-screen ad building platform has been built with next-generation HTML5 technology & features AdScript, the first coding language built exclusively for digital advertising. It’s a simpler & leaner HTML5 that excludes unnecessary libraries in order to significantly reduce your project file size.
Epoch features include LightSpeed, a Photoshop extension that saves you time by converting your PSDs directly to an Epoch project.
Live previews generated by Epoch make it easier & faster to review & fix issues while you work. You can broadcast projects with your team to test cross-screen functionality & tweak it on the fly.
Publishing created ads is also a breeze. You simply choose your server in Epoch & export ad bundles with your ad server’s hosting & reporting specs built-in & ready to publish.
You can test the Epoch HTML5 ad building tool with a free 7-day trial download before you sign up for the paid version (US $99/user/month or $85 if you pay for a year).
