The VAST video begins to play when 50% or more of the ad is viewable. The video will begin playing with muted sound and within the dimensions of the ad itself. If the user scrolls further down the page (or back up), and the video is no longer 50% viewable, then the video will pause. The video will resume again when it is more than 50% viewable. Control panels are available at all times which allow the user to turn on the sound, pause the video or click to full screen. If interacting with the video, the user will be redirected to the landing page.
