- Initially the first interactive panel of the Filmstrip is loaded. Subsequent panels must be downloaded on user initiation only.
- There are predefined areas at the top and bottom of the panels that allow the user to click to move to the next panel (it is recommended that there be a clear call to action message to the user in these spaces).
- Users may interact with the unique content of each panel. Video may be included as an option.
- No frequency capping required.
- Please see Sizmek's demo and build guide here.
- Please contact Sizmek for further assistance.
