The amount of video being delivered online is expanding exponentially, and the ability to monetize all of this content is critical for publishers, media, and entertainment companies to meet their bottom line. The spread of ad-blocking software has created challenges for content delivery, especially when it comes to monetization. With Encoding.com’s Server-Side Dynamic Ad Insertion technology, companies can monetize content with ad support across all platforms including mobile, tablet, desktop, and OTT devices. Easily generate HLS stream that preserve SCTE triggers from broadcasters, or insert new ad markers directly into the HLS manifest or .m3u8 file. The whole process can be automated with the Encoding.com API.

Using DAI with Encoding.com addresses these issues, creating a seamless user experience that is easy to implement and ensures delivery of content and ads to the broadest audience.
