Adverty is granted US patent for in-game ad viewability technology BrainImpression™




STOCKHOLM, Nov. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Adverty AB (publ) has been granted a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office for its in-game ad viewability technology BrainImpression™; a groundbreaking method for determining ad viewability and impressions within complex gaming environments. The patented invention is one of the core functionalities of Adverty’s leading in-game advertising platform.

Adverty, the leading in-game platform for advertisers, agencies and game developers, today announces the notice of allowance for its in-game ad viewability technology patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The technology, called BrainImpression™, is a groundbreaking method for determining ad viewability and ad impressions, for example, when an advert is considered as seen by the user, within complex computer-generated graphical environments such as two-dimensional and three-dimensional games.

Viewability is one of the most important metrics in brand advertising and several renowned brands tend to exclude websites and other advertising media with low viewability in their media plans. To help advertisers understand and publishers define how to count an ad as seen, the media industry has established standards on how to measure web-based ad viewability. In regards to in-game advertising viewability, the industry is still at its infancy, with Adverty taking an active role in helping both IAB and third party ad verification leaders define these industry-wide, sought-after standards. 

“Our patented in-game viewability algorithm outlines one of the core functionalities in our cutting-edge ad platform. We use our knowledge and innovation to help define appropriate viewability standards for in-game advertising – something that will benefit the media industry and heighten the acceptance of this new ad format amongst advertisers”, says Niklas Bakos, CEO and founder at Adverty.

The BrainImpression™ patent covers and protects a method of deciding if an advertisement, displayed in a gaming environment and shown on a display, has been seen by a user. The method of decision is based on the ad size, time in view and position on display for the user. Depending on the size of the ad on display, the ad is classified as seen after various time intervals, triggering an ad impression by the system.

Furthermore, the patent covers specific methods for adverts in the three-dimensional gaming space, where viewing angles and incidence angles towards the ad and the user display determine how well the ad is visible at any given time. For example, an ad unit viewed from the side is not detected as quickly, if at all, depending on its viewing angle, compared to an ad unit seen from a straight angle. Moreover, an advert placed in the center of the field of view is classified as seen faster than an ad closer to the periphery with a higher angle of incidence.

The BrainImpression™ patent application was filed in March 2017 at a time when Adverty focused on future gaming platforms such as Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality. Over the years, the focus has shifted towards mobile games, the largest and fastest growing gaming platform globally. Altogether, Adverty has established a leading cross-platform framework for unobtrusive, in-game brand and performance advertising, allowing brands to connect with new audiences in unique ways.

With the company’s fundamental mission in mind, the patent US 16/499.258 / US20200110262A1 covers head-mounted displays, such as Virtual Reality headsets, Augmented Reality headsets and smart glasses. A continuing application to protect the invention for other displays such as mobile phone, tablet and TV screens has been submitted to the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

Oslo, Los Angeles, Cidade do México e Budapeste estão empenhados na construção limpa para levar a indústria da construção a um futuro sustentável




Na C40’s Clean Construction Declaration os presidentes de câmara comprometem-se a revolucionar a indústria de construção global e a levá-la a um futuro mais sustentável para alcançar “uma vida próspera, resiliente e saudável para todos nas nossas cidades, especialmente nas comunidades mais vulneráveis”.

A indústria da construção é actualmente responsável por mais de 23% das emissões globais de gases com efeito de estufa e 30% do consumo global de recursos. “Business as usual” significaria um perigoso aumento da temperatura global de 3°C.

A declaração estabelece objectivos ousados e ambiciosos para o desenvolvimento dos edifícios e infra-estruturas do futuro com emissões líquidas zero:

  • Reduzir as emissões em pelo menos 50% para todos os novos edifícios e renovações até 2030.
  • Redução das emissões em pelo menos 50% de todos os projectos de infra-estruturas até 2030
  • Aquisição e, se possível, utilização de maquinaria de construção exclusivamente livre de emissões a partir de 2025.

A obrigação de converter e modernizar os edifícios existentes tem um enorme potencial para criar novos empregos verdes, que são essenciais para uma recuperação equilibrada e amiga do ambiente a partir do Covid-19.

Os autarcas utilizarão o seu poder de compra para normalizar o equipamento de construção com emissões zero, exigir transparência e responsabilidade na cadeia de fornecimento, incorporar uma política de construção limpa nos procedimentos de concepção, aquisição e contratação e nos códigos de construção. Os Presidentes de Câmara comprometem-se a aprovar pelo menos um projecto de construção com emissões zero até 2025 e a apresentar um relatório anual sobre o progresso.

  • Réduire les émissions indirectes d’au moins 50 % pour tous les nouveaux bâtiments et les rénovations d’ici 2030
  • Réduire les émissions indirectes d’au moins 50 % de tous les projets d’infrastructure d’ici 2030
  • Acquisition et, si possible, utilisation de machines de construction exclusivement sans émissions à partir de 2025.

L’obligation de convertir et de moderniser le parc immobilier existant présente un énorme potentiel de création de nouveaux emplois verts – essentiel pour une récupération équilibrée et respectueuse de l’environnement à partir de COVID-19. 

Les maires utiliseront leur pouvoir d’achat pour standardiser les équipements de construction à émission zéro, exiger la transparence et la responsabilité dans la chaîne d’approvisionnement, intégrer une politique de construction propre dans les procédures de conception, d’achat et de passation de marchés et dans les codes de construction.

OMRON Strengthens Engagement with AliveCor with Series E Investment, Reinforces Cross-company Alliance for Remote Cardiovascular Condition Management




KYOTO, Japan, Nov. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — OMRON Healthcare Co., Ltd. announced on November 24 additional investment into AliveCor by its parent company, OMRON Corporation, as part of $65 million series E funding for the leader in AI-based personal electrocardiogram (ECG) technology. OMRON led this round of investment, reinforcing the cross-company collaboration that began in 2017. The companies continue to build on their global alliance to accelerate development of solutions for cardiovascular disease management and remote patient monitoring utilizing ECG technology.


“OMRON is committed to developing life-saving cardiovascular health technologies in pursuit of our ‘Going for Zero’ vision to eliminate heart attacks and strokes.

That is why we seek like-minded partners, like AliveCor, to advance our initiatives and work together to save lives,” said Isao Ogino, president and CEO of OMRON Healthcare.

“Over one billion adults are hypertensive worldwide (*1), and their risk of stroke is nearly five times greater (*2) if they also suffer from Afib (atrial fibrillation). Hypertension is also an underlying health condition which increases the risk of complications with COVID-19 (*3). The ability to monitor both blood pressure and heart rhythm at home is essential for early detection, treatment and management of these cardiovascular health conditions.

“Our alliance with AliveCor will help enhance our current technology portfolio and provide hypertensive patients and healthcare professionals with data that can save lives–a complete picture of patients’ cardiovascular health that can be achieved with personal remote monitoring technology used at home. We continue to explore and develop new technologies to enhance the accessibility of home monitoring that help people to manage their condition, and will engage partners like AliveCor to ensure this technology is best-in-market, further accelerating our remote patient monitoring business to achieve our goal, Going for Zero,” said Ogino.

OMRON’s expanded investment into AliveCor builds upon the companies’ ongoing collaboration. OMRON expanded its blood pressure monitor portfolio with the launch of “Complete” (TM) the first blood pressure monitor with ECG capability in a single device and the first FDA-cleared technology developed in collaboration with AliveCor in 2019. Currently available in the U.S. at and participating retailers, expanded distribution of Complete (TM) is expected in other regions globally during the company’s fourth quarter.
