Yospace is delighted to have won NewBay Media’s Best of Show Award, presented at the 2016 NAB Show in Las Vegas by TV Technology.The award recognises the importance of Yospace’s Dynamic Ad Insertion platform in enabling live channels to be monetised when viewed online, an advancement that goes a long way to securing the future of live broadcasting.Yospace’s entry was based around a series of major launches around the globe since NAB 2015. Starting with Canal 13’s coverage, as host broadcaster, of the 2015 Copa América football tournament, the entry also covered launches with French news channel BFMTV and DIRECTV in the US, then continued with a string of major European deployments, including Channel 4, Sky and ITV.The scale and breadth of these long-term projects demonstrate that Yospace’s Dynamic Ad Insertion platform has emerged as the most innovative and robust monetisation solution for live simulcast available today.NewBay Media’s Best of Show Awards are evaluated by a panel of engineers and industry experts, and are selected based on innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry.“Recognition with an award at the NAB Show from NewBay Media’s Broadcast & Video Group is a strong vote of confidence and admiration from our leading industry publications,” said NewBay Media Broadcast & Video Group Vice President & Group Publisher Eric Trabb.
Yospace is the foremost provider of server-side ad insertion (SSAI) technology in the world today. Its solution allows live streams and on demand (VoD) content to be monetized for OTT in a way that is true to the seamless viewer experience of linear television, while opening up benefits of digital advertising such as one-to-one addressability and real-time measurement.
Yospace was the first to publicly demonstrate SSAI in a live stream, with ITV in 2012, and today services major broadcasters and network operators across the globe, including DIRECTV and FOX in the USA; Sky Media, ITV, BT Sport, Channel 4 and STV in the UK; Telia and TV4 in Sweden; Optus, Nine, and Seven West Media in Australia.
