Benefits of the Collaboration

First, we know that offering audiences an optimal streaming experience is crucial nowadays. Broadpeak, renowned for its cutting-edge streaming solutions, ensures that users get the best-in-class streaming experience using our OTT content processing and delivery expertise. However, a seamless streaming experience isn’t the sole ingredient for success in the OTT space; monetization plays a pivotal role. Google, a trailblazer in digital advertising, brings forth unparalleled monetization strategies. By integrating superior SSAI streaming capabilities on with Google Ad Manager’s robust monetization tools, content providers can offer an outstanding viewer experience while ensuring sustainable revenue generation.

Secondly, of course, viewer engagement is vital for better CPM. For that, personalization is the key to capturing viewers’ attention. With platforms that focus on their strengths ( on SSAI, DAI Pod Serving on ad serving), they have a better capacity to scale overall. Advertisers and distributors now have the unprecedented ability to tailor each ad break to the individual viewer in privacy forward way. This not only elevates the user experience but also optimizes ad efficacy.  Ads can now be curated based on viewer preferences, habits, and demographics, with user consent and privacy controls in place, potentially leading to a more engaged audience and better returns.

Moreover, by receiving standard analytics between the audio/video pipe and the ad stack, publishers can delve deep into understanding the true impact of their advertising content on the viewing experience. Such analytics evaluate not just the effectiveness of the ad content but also how it integrates with the overall streaming content, ensuring that ads enhance rather than disrupt the viewer journey. A unified analytics platform gives a holistic view of viewer behavior, which can then be leveraged to refine strategies and achieve better viewer retention.

Finally, it’s often challenging for publishers to consistently stay ahead without overhauling their systems. However, with the overlay Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offerings, publishers don’t need to discard their existing video stack to work with Google Ad Manager on the advertisement stack. Instead, they can supercharge it. seamlessly integrates with the current ecosystem, providing the much-needed boost in SSAI capabilities without a total revamp while keeping control of the stack.
