Audible Magic and RGB Networks Announce Dynamic Ad Insertion for TV Broadcast Streams That Lack Advertising Markers
|By Business Wire
|September 3, 2014 12:00 AM EDT
Magic, the leading provider of high-precision automatic content
recognition (ACR) solutions, and RGB
Networks, the provider of the industry’s most scalable, unified
solutions for multiscreen video delivery, announced the companies are
working together to enable cable and satellite broadcast network
operators to replace ads embedded in broadcast streams when those
streams originally lack advertising markers. The solution is
particularly applicable outside the US, where ad markers such as SCTE-35
cues are often not included in broadcast content.
Audible Magic will demonstrate the solution September 12-16 at the IBC2014
Show in Amsterdam, RAI Hall 14, stand number 14.K03.
“Many network operators outside the US want to realize new revenue
opportunities where advertising in broadcast streams could be replaced,”
said Vance Ikezoye, Audible Magic’s CEO. “Lacking SCTE-35 markers,
network operators can’t automate ad insertion. Now with Audible Magic
detecting ad placements in the content itself with frame-accurate
precision, RGB Networks can insert a marker and enable the use of ad
Audible Magic offers a hardware appliance that monitors incoming
broadcast streams and applies its patented content fingerprint-matching
technique to identify advertising content against a hosted database of
all ads appearing in the network. When ad content is detected in the
broadcast stream, Audible Magic’s Ad Detection Appliance signals RGB
Networks’ ad-marking device that then injects SCTE-35 cues, with
splice-frame accuracy, into the transcoded stream. Ad insertion
equipment that responds to SCTE-35 cues can then be utilized downstream
to enable ad replacement that is invisible to the viewer yet
cost-effective to implement.
Audible Magic’s ad detection can be applied to live linear broadcasts or
to video on demand, cloud DVR or personal DVR applications. The combined
Audible Magic-RGB Networks solution works for both QAM or IPTV
“In working with Audible Magic, we’ve provided international network
operators an immediate solution to increased revenues that easily plugs
and plays with their existing infrastructure,” said Simone Sassoli, Vice
President of Marketing and Business Development at RGB Networks.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time.

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years?
