AdSparx Dynamic-Ad-Insertion now available for MPEG-DASH and Smooth Streaming

New York, NY — June 6, 2016

AdSparx announces the availability of video ad platform that will enable dynamic ad insertion in MPEG-DASH and Microsoft Smooth Streaming protocol using the same workflow settings and business rules that were used for HLS. This promises the same TV-like seamless experience of user targeted ads in online video to all the three protocols.

The HLS, MPEG-DASH and Smooth support also comes with built-in support for the DRM standards Fairplay, Widevine and PlayReady respectively. These capabilities will make AdSparx monetize even DRM protected streams across all protocols. In case of MPEG-DASH, any player can play the ad-inserted streams. No need on the player side to support any advanced features like multi-period support.

Ad-insertion rules like targeting, campaign goals configuration for streams remain same across the three protocols. Creatives are auto-packaged into DASH and SMOOTH compatible formats during delivery such that they match smoothly with the content & its streaming protocol. AdSparx supports both pre-rolls and mid-rolls in live streams and on-demand content for all three protocols.

"With the support for these new protocols, we have ensured AdSparx is now truly protocol agnostic", says Kunal Lagwankar, CEO, AdSparx. "AdSparx continues its endeavors of providing a flexible platform that does not require publishers to change any of their existing infrastructure, existing DRM policies, transcoders or any video players. We have taken considerable efforts to ensure the Ad configuring and serving workflow remains same for all the protocols. The adaptive nature of the protocols ensures that multi-bitrate ads & streams results in smooth transitions based on the end-user bandwidth"
