LG Electronics developed the LG advertising platform to strengthen the ecosystem of developers, publishers and users, creating a mutually beneficial platform in which developers can maximize revenues and users receive targeted, relevant and engaging advertisements. The global, multi-device platform offers advertisers the immersive engagement of the TV's large-screen experience combined with the interactive engagement of digital media.

YuMe and LG announced today that Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc., the U.S. arm of global automotive manufacturer Toyota, is the charter advertiser on LG Smart TVs.

LG and YuMe will be running pilot ad campaigns in the United States with several leading advertisers starting in November with broader advertiser participation planned for the spring of 2012.
