The OTT Advantage with Etere: Deliver Targeted Commercials to Enhance your Content Monetization Strategy
While OTT opens up a world of on-demand entertainment for viewers, it also introduces personalized advertising streams that are designed to increase customer retention and conversion opportunities. With Etere OTT Delivery, you can target your advertising according to viewers profiles, including having different advertisements for a single content. It allows operators to coordinate all playlists and urgent requests before playout. Furthermore, Etere enables the delivery of personalized commercials that are automatically selected based on matches from the viewers profiles. With advanced metadata analysis, the delivery of commercials can be targeted on multiple levels including geo-localisation, demographics, device type and media consumption preferences.
Etere SCTE-35 driver enables video content and targeted commercials to be stitched into a single stream. The system automatically detects the final data in SCTE-35 and matches it with the playlist data to ensure that the broadcast content is always in sync with that of the playlist.
