Vigor Announces Launch of Advertio® Cloud Ad Insertion Platform
Advanced Linear Local Ad Insertion Platform Now Available as SAAS
Vigor Systems, Inc., a leader in TV ad insertion services and content distribution, has announced the launch of Advertio Cloud, the software-as-a-service version of Vigor’s advanced linear local ad insertion platform. The launch of Advertio Cloud will benefit broadcasters, cable operators and IPTV networks with the increased reliability and performance associated with cloud technology and automation.
By moving media delivery, scheduling and monitoring into the cloud, cable operators will future-proof their operations from rapidly changing technology while immediately benefitting from operational flexibility. Advertio Cloud is a major enhancement to the Advertio hardware currently in the marketplace which previously was only available for direct purchase.
Other Advertio Cloud subscription benefits include:
- No upfront costs
- Monthly rental of server (Advertio configuration TBD)
- Access to the Vigor Cloud Portal via desktop or mobile device
- Advanced overnight shipment of replacement servers
- Remote assistance from Vigor with system setup
- Ongoing support for all portal, hardware, and software updates
New features integrated into Advertio Cloud include: a channel monitoring matrix, quick upload tool for ad media and CCMS schedules, scalable station infrastructure set up, and media and play-out log monitoring from a central location.
“Scaling to our customers’ needs is Vigor’s #1 priority,” says Magnus Sorlander, CEO and Founder. “We have been working diligently on creating new functionality for our ad insertion clients as well as streamlining our server environment for all Vigor services. With the rollout of a cloud version of Advertio, we believe cable operators can immediately reduce overhead costs and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with a technology partner who is focused on 24/7 customer support, and future-proof software and hardware development.”
The Vigor server included with all subscriptions is a high-density DPI ad server for SD and HD content. When used in conjunction with SCTE-compliant ad splicers, Advertio provides ad insertion on compressed video channels. Current Advertio functionality supports MPEG-2 and MPEG4 AVC (H.264) in SD and HD formats as well as SCTE-30/35 DPI trigger commands. Advertio has guaranteed interoperability with industry-leading ad splicers, simultaneous ad insertion on up to 100 channels, and approximately 96,000 SD/36,000 HD 30-second ad storage capacity.
Premiere Advertio Cloud clients will begin service rollout in March 2018.
