Gateway Advertising

Your player displays an advertisement programming begins.

When a user opens your player, we have the ability to show a video or flash movie advertisement that will play before your programming begins.

Our web-based trafficking software will allow you to schedule and upload multiple campaigns and rotate different creative for the same campaign. The flexible scheduling tool will also allow you to specify the day of the week, time of day, and many other options that provide you with the ability to meet the exact needs of your advertiser. The Gateway Management tools are managed over the internet though our Broadcaster control web site.

To preview a scheduled gateway, our scheduling tool provides a page that displays the corresponding media and banner files. For gateways with more than 1 media file, you can select the preferred file to preview. During the playback, banner graphics for the gateway will appear below the preview screen. After the video completes, the actual radio stream follows.

The Gateway Schedule Page allows you to create or edit your gateway ad campaigns. Each campaign can consist of up to 3 different media files. You may also specify the day parts for which a content file is allowed to be shown.
