Social Ad Specifications

From the Terminus platform, easily launch, manage, and report on LinkedIn Sponsored Content and orchestrate coordinated campaigns on both the Terminus display and LinkedIn channels.

  • Supported Ad Format: 1200x627 (ideal ratio: 1.9:1)
  • Supported File Types: .JPG and .PNG
  • Minimum Width: 400px
  • Maximum Size: 2MB
  • Introductory Text: maximum 150 characters
  • Title: maximum 70 characters


Video Ad Specifications

  • Terminus can serve linear ads (pre-roll video ads)
  • File Format must be MP4
  • File size must be smaller than 10MB
  • Typical resolutions: 1920x1080 or 1280x720
  • Minimum duration for video ads is 5 seconds, and maximum duration is 60 seconds, but Terminus recommends creating separate ads under 15/30/45/60 seconds.
  • Bid requests usually fall into standard buckets of max duration, and it’s possible for any video length to be sent to fulfill the request, as long as it falls below that max duration.
    • e.g. a 25-second ad could be sent to fulfill a request with a max duration of 30 seconds, or a 6-second ad could be sent for 15 seconds. The player will adapt to a shorter video length than the max duration, so there will be no dead space between the end of the ad and the beginning of the publisher’s video content.
  • The video target bitrate is 2500 kbps
  • Greater than or less than 2500 kbps is also acceptable if the total file size conforms to the accepted <10MB
