NEW YORK, Dec. 10, 2018 – SVG Summit – Zype (www.zype.com), the leader in video content management and distribution infrastructure, today announced at the Sports Video Group Summit in New York City support for Zype Server Side Ad Insertion (SSAI), a solution geared toward sports broadcasters and sports video organizations to help maximize ad fills and revenue during live, linear and on-demand broadcasts. The Zype SSAI solution provides a robust alternative to client-side only ad monetization approaches that are susceptible to ad blockers and other ad fulfillment challenges. With Zype SSAI, advertisements are stitched directly in video streams for a continuous, uninterrupted viewing experience and optimal ad delivery. Zype made the announcement at the Sports Video Group Summit in New York City.

By stitching ads in-stream versus relying on client side requests, we help customers sidestep ad blockers and other delivery issues, and therefore maximize ad fills and revenues.”
