Geo-target ads on satellite TV

Generate additional ad revenues by inserting local ads on a common satellite feed.

Optimize your ad inventory and attract regional advertisers

For TV networks covering diverse geographical regions using a common satellite feed, Amagi offers an innovative solution to geo-target ads without creating a separate satellite infrastructure. Traditionally, if TV networks had to attract local or regional advertisers when broadcasting a single feed to multiple regions, they had to invest in as many satellite transponders to create ‘local’ feeds. This would mean upfront capital investment without guarantee of advertising revenue returns that is commensurate with investments. Often, this becomes a deterrent for TV networks to build new ad revenue streams.

Using Amagi STORM IRD solution for geo-targeting ads, TV networks can create as many ‘local’ feeds from a common satellite feed enabling local/regional advertisers to reach target audiences, thereby generating ad revenues which otherwise was left untapped.

For TV networks, Amagi licenses its geo-targeting solution on a revenue-share model. This makes it easy for TV networks to expand their advertising business without allocating a large CAPEX.

  • Build new ad revenue stream by splitting existing ad inventory
  • No need to create separate satellite feeds for geo-targeting ads
  • Save on upfront CAPEX using Amagi licensing model
