PASADENA, Calif., April 11, 2011 OpenX Technologies, Inc. (OpenX), the world’s leading independent provider of ad technology for web publishers, has joined forces with video industry pioneer Epipheo Studios to create a provocative video short about the big problems facing online publishers today.

The video offers insight into many of the inefficiencies and frustrations involved in selling online advertising. From managing inventory to controlling data to limitations with scheduling and zones, the video also explains some of the key ways that the new OpenX Enterprise platform helps major publishers optimize all of their ad revenue channels in one place in real-time.

Epipheo Studios has developed an entirely new breed of instructional and informative online video called ‘epipheos.’ With their expertise in explaining complicated online technology, Epipheo Studios were a natural choice for this assignment, as Paul Martecchini, head of marketing, OpenX, explained:

“We wanted to dramatize how broken the online ad industry is, and do so in a funny way.  We also hope the video educates and informs people who are unfamiliar with the complexities of the online industry and triggers thinking about solutions.”

“Creating a video to help explain and communicate this area of online advertising was an interesting challenge,” said Eric Ankenman, producer, Epipheo Studios. “We hope that people will be able to find an easier and simpler method to manage their online revenue with this insight into OpenX Enterprise.”
