IAB Dynamic Content Ad Standard for Public Comment

New Dynamic Content Ad Standard Draft Open for Public Comment until November 28.

The IAB Dynamic Content Ad Standard is a structured system of meta-data for defining creative components and their asset variations in an ad unit. This standard is designed to help creative developers, ad content management systems, and ad servers build and serve real time dynamic content in advertisements.

The dynamic content ad standard is developed to be programming language agnostic. At the same time, it is delivered with a JSON schema as an implementation example available here.
