New! THUNDERSTORM Dynamic OTT Ad Insertion Platform
At BVE 2016, attendees can get a sneak preview of Amagi's THUNDERSTORM, a new platform that dynamically inserts ads on the server side, simplifying the way TV networks deliver personalized and targeted ads on premium live and linear OTT feeds.
THUNDERSTORM performs instant, server-side ad insertion, providing TV networks with an effective approach to OTT ad insertion compared to the traditional method of inserting mid-roll ads on the client-side. THUNDERSTORM also allows broadcasters to insert multiple types of ad formats, including bugs, L-bands, and linear video, for ultimate flexibility. THUNDERSTORM eliminates the need to create device-driven OTT ad streams, as the ads are stitched at the server level, making them compatible across various screens.
