Video Insertion Products & Services
AdGorilla offers a variety of branded products built around our advanced video insertion software- SSP Quantum™- and our expertise in providing services related to video manipulation and advertising delivery. While our products each serve a unique function in a video content delivery environment, together they can offer providers the ability to originate, monitor and monetize their content.
GEAR: Featuring the most advanced video insertion software in the industry: SSP Quantum™
‘Gear’ refers to the box you put in your racks. But what makes AdGorilla GEAR different from our competitor’s products is what’s inside the box. After ten years’ experience in making high-quality, cost-effective advertising insertion products AdGorilla recently launched the most advanced video insertion software available: SSP Quantum™, featuring our Seamless Splice technology. AdGorilla wrote the book on single-unit digital ad insertion when we launched our analog insertion equipment in 2006, but with Quantum™ we’re re-writing the entire video insertion encyclopedia to encompass advertising, alternative content splicing, network origination, IPTV, OTT, mobile and whatever else content providers can imagine.
AdGorilla’s SSP Quantum™ builds on our successful See Spots Play™ digital insertion software platform. While See Spots Play changed the insertion market by offering all the functions of digital insertion on one chassis, Quantum™ changes the game again by offering seamless digital splices that are indistinguishable from the source content both visually and by advanced video analyzers. There are no compromises with SSP Quantum™.
Ad Insertion Applications
For advertising insertion, AdGorilla GEAR is based on SCTE standards, and handles MPEG-2 and MGEG-4, or a combination of both, in GigE or ASI digital connectivity. And GEAR plays well with others – or alone. There is no need for any 3rd party equipment and there are no licensing fees for your customers to enjoy Seamless Splices from SSP Quantum™.
Have an IP video network that needs a better insertion solution? AdGorilla SSP Quantum™ can be executing insertions as quickly as a single day from installation to operation. With our software-based, single-platform solution, your team doesn’t spend time configuring unnecessary hardware interfaces and you’re ready to go that much faster!
With the onboard transport stream analyzer AdGorilla GEAR continuously monitors the transport streams on which it inserts and can alert your NOC to input issues. This feature can save hours of headache and eliminates the embarrassing call from your customers alerting you to quality issues. And, our automatic fail-over redundancy feature ensures that you’re up and running all of the time.
AdGorilla has learned that there is no replacement for bit replacement. AdGorilla GEAR inserts digital content by replacing the native video stream’s bits with the inserted video’s stream’s bits, not by simply overlaying a video clip. For advertising insertion, this means that insertion where they’re supposed to happen – at the correct frame, not in the middle of a national ad or worse; in the middle of programming itself. Additionally, our approach produces the cleanest video imaginable, no jitter, no CC errors, no problems down to the 3rd level and beyond.
And if you’re up in arms about the CALM Act, just calm down. AdGorilla GEAR is configured to make you CALM compliant without any additional expense or effort on your part.
Alternative Content Splicing
For managing your sports blackouts or any other content splicing, AdGorilla has developed a product called Alternate Content. With this capability, AdGorilla enables content distributors to switch entire audio/video feeds On-Demand or On-A-Schedule. With Alternate Content, not only can you support blacking out sporting events, but you can also apply the same solution to changing feeds for specific programs as your scheduling requires.
Designed to be integrated into the AdGorilla GEAR single-platform solution using SSP Quantum™ technology, Alternate Content gives video providers the ultimate flexibility to effectively manage their content, minimize video management expenses and maximize revenue.
Network Origination and Advanced Advertising
AdGorilla GEAR’s SSP Quantum™ is also the backbone of AdGorilla TORQ, including our network origination services and advanced advertising products. The same technology that blends advertising and network content into a seamless video stream also permits us to originate complete linear video streams for content license holders. And for advanced advertising installations, Quantum™ can multiply streams internally and output the same source content many times over; each with a different advertising insertion.
AdGorilla GEAR behaves the way the video insertion was intended; efficiently, easily and accurately, leading to the reason we call SSP Quantum™ the most elegant and effective video insertion offering in the marketplace! Whether it is ASI- or IP- based digital ad insertion, network origination or advanced advertising, AdGorilla GEAR is the solution for you. Click here for details about our equipment.
