Dynamic ad insertion into streamed video offers the ability to create value through hyper-targeting, which is set to exploit full programmatic delivery. Commercial rights, regulations and technical specifications are governing factors for ad copy management. In the online arena, managing these touchpoints can be highly manual and error-prone when trafficking first-party sold digital ad copy. Furthermore, there is currently little confidence in third-party sold / programmatic networks' ad copy workflows, however broadcasters and consumers alike expect ad insertion into online video to be delivered with a "TV-quality" experience. The route forward is a fully connected ecosystem that leverages proven practices, experience and technology within broadcast operations. The challenge that faces the market is that none of these touchpoints are ever connected in their entirety. There are a multitude of endpoints offering different opportunities for inventory and targeting. Yospace and Adstream wish to present the integration of the yospaceCDS Dynamic Ad Insertion platform and Adstream Connect which addresses these challenges but also delivers unique benefits to ad agencies and brands.
