Regional Ad Insertion

As the broadcast industry consolidates and moves to lower cost infrastructures such as CentralCasting with hub and spoke architectures, it becomes more difficult to deliver target commercials to individual regions. An easy way to increase advertising revenues is to be able to target commercials to individual regions from a central hub that may control many different and geographically diverse stations.

Aveco's Regional Ad Insertion offer solutions using traditional video servers and a unique solution with the Thomson Video Network's Sapphire ASI server. Learn more and see this solution in action at IBC in the Thomson Video Networks booth in Hall 14 stand A10.
