StreamGuys To Showcase Monetisation Maximising Tech At IBC 2017

News Image
StreamGuys is to showcase how it helps broadcasters maximise monetisation efforts for dynamic ad insertion within on-demand content at the upcoming IBC2017 show.

The content delivery network and streaming media provider will demonstrate how its technology can benefit monetisation efforts for dynamic ad insertion within on-demand content such as podcasts. The demonstration will take place at IBC on stand 14.L23 in the RAI Exhibition Centre, Amsterdam from 15 – 19 September.

Complementing StreamGuys' dynamic pre-roll and mid-roll advertising capabilities for live streams and part of its evolving Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) toolset, the on-demand functions use the latest advances in targeting technologies to deliver advertisements most likely to resonate with each consumer, while keeping ads timely and relevant for consumers downloading ‘long-tail' evergreen content.

StreamGuys' dynamic advertising capabilities insert ads into the on-demand files only at the time the content is requested, leveraging available information about the listener – from geographic location to other demographic or behavioural data – to select current campaigns from advertisers or underwriters that best align with that particular subscriber or consumer.

Jason Osburn, Executive Vice President at StreamGuys, said: "Applying dynamic ad insertion to on-demand content libraries allows publishers to easily expand their monetization efforts not only to new delivery channels, but also to their back catalogs by making old podcasts evergreen with new ads.

"Long-tail content offers a significant revenue opportunity, with some publishers finding close to one-third of their download requests coming from their back catalogs. Incorporating fresh campaigns into this older programming extends the monetization value of that content for publishers, while intelligently targeting those ads to relevant listeners increases their effectiveness for advertisers and sponsors."

Embedded within the StreamGuys SGrecast system for podcast and side channel creation, StreamGuys' AdsWizz-enabled, server-side ad insertion tools enable publishers to deliver dynamic advertising to listeners across a wide array of playback platforms without requiring specialized client software for each target consumer device.

The service takes advantage of ongoing improvements in location accuracy, such as the latitude and longitude now available through mobile apps and modern web browsers, to target ads by country, state, metropolitan area or even more granularly. Support for third-party ad network integration in the underlying technology enables content providers to fill spots outside their primary target area with ads relevant to those geographies.

StreamGuys' browser-based audio editing and ad break tagging tools also improve operational workflows, avoiding the need for additional software applications while accelerating turnaround times. Fast file access and waveform generation enable users to quickly load on-demand assets, mark the points where dynamic mid-roll ad insertion should take place, and re-save the file, all without the performance delays common with alternative browser-based solutions.

Dynamic ad insertion is a key component of StreamGuys' end-to-end SaaS platform and toolset for producing, managing, monetizing and delivering live and on-demand streaming media. For podcasters, the targeted advertising capabilities combine with SGrecast and StreamGuys' robust, cloud-based delivery infrastructure to offer publishers a comprehensive, unified solution spanning content creation through distribution.

Customers ranging from public broadcasters like New York Public Radio to commercial networks such as Cox Media Group depend on StreamGuys' technology and customer service to power their podcast offerings.
