"We're introducing responsive full-page interstitials, which allow advertisers to reach our audiences with the same type of engaging ads as in our print magazines and our apps," Trotman said in a release. Full-page creative can now be used across platforms and advertisers can extend buys to the web.
 
Chatelaine and FLARE are the first Rogers Media consumer publishing properties to use the tech and others including Canadian Business are in queue, according to company info.
