Ooyala, the leading video platform is now offering users access to the new LinkTo technology, which enables businesses, such as online retailers and ecommerce companies who wish to sell online, to highlight objects throughout a promotional video and link to a shopping cart for a "click and buy" experience.
Publishers can also insert opt-in forms for viewers interested in learning more about an item.
LinkTo.tv is an online tool from How To TV, the instructional video company, that lets users add interactive "hot spots" to their videos.
With the interactive LinkTo.tv technology, viewers can engage more directly with videos, while publishers generate revenue and collect valuable viewer data.
Russell Goldsmith, co-founder of How To TV, said “Ooyala serves over 500 customers, including 250 global media and enterprise customers. We think this is an exciting opportunity for these brands to take their existing video assets and create more engaging and actionable activities through our LinkTo technology."
"LinkTo.tv provides a great service, one we think will increase viewer engagement and grow revenue for our publishers," said Alex Holub, Senior Product Manager at Ooyala. "We're pleased to be working with How To TV to extend our video platform offering and provide our customers with innovative add-ons."
