Adobe unveils new video ad software

Adobe has launched a new web-based video technology platform that allows marketers to create and edit live video clips for use in online advertising almost instantaneously.

The Primetime Highlights software, which was launched today at Mobile World Congress, means that marketers could create an ad featuring video content from a live event that is still ongoing.

It integrates with the Adobe Auditude ad platform, which delivers behaviourally targeted video ads, to create a single workflow for creating and monetising live video clips in real time.

Online and offline cross-pollination on marketer's to-do list for 2012

This week we launched Econsultancy's fourth quarterly intelligence briefing, produced in partnership with Adobe, which highlights developing trends within digital marketing.

Social engagement was found to be the top priority for the next year, alongside content strategy and mobile optimisation. With our annual state of social study showing in December 2011 that 64% of businesses have matured beyond basic use of social media, that desire for a deeper connection was no surprise.

One area that the briefing did happily highlight however is the the growing importance of connection between digital activity and offline marketing. Though integration is often on the lips of marketers from all walks, actually connecting the two in reality is still an arduous task.

Adobe doubles down on its HTML5 mobile bet

For Adobe, the rise of mobile, and the iPhone and iPad in particular, has been bittersweet.

Yes, the company most recognizable to consumers for its Reader and Flash products, has plenty of new opportunities thanks to mobile, but exploiting them has required the company to look at a number of Plan Bs.

The primary reason: Apple doesn't like Flash. Adobe tried to persuade Apple that Flash isn't so bad, but that wasn't going anywhere, so the company has been increasingly betting its mobile future on other technologies, like HTML5.

Case in point: Muse, a new online tool Adobe has launched which is supposed to make it easy to "design and publish HTML websites without writing code."
