Monetizing video content to platforms including Over-The-Top (OTT) and Video-On-Demand (VOD) on the internet is an important driver of business revenue. Having an effective ad insertion strategy can help you to deliver high quality content quickly to multiple platforms, leverage new revenue sources for advertisements and integrate effectively with other systems to ensure a seamless exchange of data across the complete media workflow.
SCTE-104 is a broadcast standard that defines the messaging in an SDI signal. It serves as a translator for communication between the automation and compression points of the system that inserts SCTE 35 private sections into an outgoing video transport. Conversely, SCTE-35 are timed metadata that are inserted by the driver to signal an ad insertion opportunity in the transport streams. It pre-defines exactly when an advertisement can be inserted in the stream and how long the duration should be. Once the ads are inserted, the video content and targeted commercials are stitched into a single stream to produce a seamless experience for the viewer. With Etere, you are able to deliver SCTE-35 and SCTE104 signals that drive multiple advertisement deliveries with the same program but without the additional costs. Etere opens up new media monetisation opportunities to drive remote ad insertions and to tap on advertising opportunities in different markets.
