ScanScout, an online video ad provider, has raised $8.5 million in Series B funding. IDB Investments of Singapore closed the round. Previous investors include General Catalyst Partners, Time Warner, First Round Capital, Baseline Ventures, and Ron Conway, according to its Website.
The company offers automated video advertisements through pre-roll and overlays. Basically those quick ads you see before a video starts and that eventually pop up throughout an online video. It recently launched a new technology called, "Super Pre-Roll," which basically makes pre-rolls more interactive and clickable.
