Seamlessly reach viewers everywhere with Dynamic Ad Insertion

When you think about TV, you don’t think about buffering, or poor ad-resolution quality. TV just works, and it works at scale. But as viewers are increasingly watching their favorite TV shows or large live events like the Olympics through over-the-top (OTT) services and across a variety of different devices, it’s important to make sure that they experience the same quality on digital as they do on TV.

Dynamic Ad Insertion helps broadcasters and publishers earn more revenue for their video inventory by delivering a seamless and personalized viewer experience. Because it’s built directly into Google Ad Manager, Dynamic Ad Insertion helps you take advantage of advanced monetization software and machine learning to maximize your revenue across devices, for live and on-demand content.

Google Ad Manager’s Dynamic Ad Insertion is the first server-side ad insertion (SSAI) solution to be accredited by the Media Rating Council (MRC) for its client-initiated impression measurement of video ads on live and video on-demand content. Partners using the solution also benefit from robust debugging tools and 24/7 support to ensure reliable delivery and help achieve operational efficiency. Which is why Ad Manager's solution has powered digital monetization for some of the largest global events in the past three years, including the World Cup, the Winter Olympics, the NFL Playoffs, and more.

How Dynamic Ad Insertion delivers personalized ad experiences seamlessly at scale

Dynamic Ad Insertion is a server-side ad-insertion technology that enables a seamless, personalized ad experience at scale. It does so by transcoding every video creative in advance to meet the format and delivery requirements of each device, and unifying the video ads and video content into a single stream in real time. Across live and on-demand content, Dynamic Ad Insertion supports mobile apps (iOS, Android), web (HTML5), and connected TV devices, including Chromecast, tvOS, xBox, and many more.

Delivering seamless and personalized ad experiences is especially challenging and critical during live events, where stream failure has high-stakes consequences. Dynamic Ad Insertion reliably supports millions of concurrent viewers with advanced pre-fetching ad decisioning, a sophisticated detection and mitigation system, and Google infrastructure and serving capacity.
