Track B: Best Practices for Deploying Server Side Ad Insertion

Wed. October 17| 3:15 PM - 4:00 PM | Location: 3D09

At first glance, server-side ad insertion (SSAI) appears easy but managing the edge cases and executing at scale actually make it extraordinarily difficult. During this session, Abid Dar and Kevin Flanagan, both Video Solutions Consultants at Google, will walk you through some best practices for deployment of server-side ad insertion. The talk will cover topics such as: encoder redundancy, multi-CDN systems and SCTE-35 best practices. Additionally, they will discuss the current state of DASH server-side ad insertion. The talk has been compiled from over five years of experience deploying SSAI for some of the largest video producers and distributors in the world.
