Server-Side Ad Insertion for live

Server-Side Ad Insertion (SSAI) is a crucial technology that enables you to input advertisements within content streams at the server level sending a continuous stream to the viewer’s device that blends the content and ads into a single stream.

Client-Side Ad Insertion for live

Client-Side Ad Insertion (CSAI) enables advertisements to be directly set within the viewer’s device during content playback. With CSAI, you can dynamically insert ads in real-time and personalize the viewing experience while ensuring seamless integration of ads within the content.

How does Bitmovin support monetization for live streaming

Bitmovin’s Live Encoder elevates streaming workflows by offering robust integration with both Server-Side Ad Insertion (SSAI) and Client-Side Ad Insertion (CSAI). Our advanced encoder not only enhances content delivery with high-quality live streaming but also supports SCTE-35 markers embedded in the input signal, ensuring these markers are seamlessly passed through to the output. This capability empowers broadcasters and content providers to effectively monetize their streams and implement the monetization strategy of their choice. The dual integration provides a flexible, viewer-centric approach to ad monetization, making it easier than ever to maximize revenue while maintaining an optimal user experience.
