What is a Squeeze Back?

Squeezeback is a process that reduces the size of a video or image (such as a television display) to allow other items (such as logos, text crawls or graphics) to be seen in the display area.

squeeze back advertising is now growing popular ,  even the cable news networks are now frequently running commercials during special events in a large box alongside a smaller image of their coverage.

Most of them are running the L-Squeeze Back Style ,  So the networks’ thinking is that as long as there is program content on the screen, viewers will be less likely to switch channels, so its a win-win situation , And for designers its even easier to implement.
