Celtra, Mindshare and Capcom(R) Bring Compelling Mobile Rich Media to Twitter 
and Facebook 
Combined Twitter and Facebook Campaign Makes Innovative Use of Social
News Feeds to Target Relevant Large Scale Mobile Audiences by
Delivering an Immersive Mobile Experience 
CAMBRIDGE, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/05/13 --  Celtra Inc., the
industry leader for rich media mobile ad serving and analytics, today
unveiled a unique social mobile rich media campaign with strategic
partner Mindshare and gaming industry powerhouse, Capcom. The
campaign, built for Capcom's new game DmC Devil May Cry(TM), delivers
an engaging, entertaining brand story using mobile rich media
combined with the broad reach of the Twitter and Facebook news feeds
-- the world's most popular social networks.  
"As a pioneer in the gaming industry, we're constantly looking for
new and unique ways to reach and engage our audience," said Craig
Brown, UK Product Manager at Capcom. "With the help of Celtra and
Mindshare, we're seamlessly connecting with gamers where they live --
on their mobile platforms and in the Facebook and Twitter news
feeds." 
The DmC Devil May Cry campaign is the first Celtra mobile rich media
execution for Twitter and the first combined social rich media
campaign using both Facebook and Twitter platforms. This new approach
allows brands like Capcom to tap into social news feeds, the prime
real estate to grab a wide audience across social channels. Mobile
social rich media gives brands the opportunity to tell their story in
an engaging, entertaining and valuable way while using the social
channel to reach the broadest relevant audience. These social rich
media experiences can be promoted using Facebook and Twitter's mobile
advertising products for increased reach and engagement. 
"Mindshare selected Celtra last year as its rich media mobile
advertising partner because of the company's comprehensive approach
to quickly and easily deliver quality rich media ads to any device,"
said James Chandler, head of mobile at Mindshare. "This campaign with
Capcom showcases the new and innovative ways that we're working
together."  
This social rich media campaign is built upon Celtra's AdCreator
platform, which takes a unique approach to delivering the next
generation of ad display technology. Offering simple implementation
of rich engagement features, this creative solution addresses many
facets of mid-funnel marketing with regard to prospect interest,
intent, direct response and analytics.  
"Celtra's multiscreen functionality means brands don't have to worry
about the complexity of delivering a beautiful user experience to any
device. We work on any smartphone, iPad and supported desktop
browsers," said Jonathan Milne, general manager, Europe at Celtra.
"The success of this combined Twitter and Facebook rich media
campaign means brands now really enjoy the network effect benefits of
targeting and quickly converting a much broader audience by becoming
part of their trusted social circles."
