SeaWell Networks & ARRIS Highlight Targeted, Ad-Supported Content Delivery to Any Consumer Device

2012 NAB Show

TORONTO--()--SeaWell Networks Inc. today announced successful ad-insertion interoperability with ARRIS Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARRS) and the demo debut of their combined technology at the NAB Show, booth SU10802, April 16-19 in Las Vegas.

To help network operators create and manage targeted ad campaigns, SeaWell Networks’ Spectrum and the ARRIS AdManager™ have collaborated, using open industry standards and protocols, to create a solution that dynamically and seamlessly inserts ads into adaptive bitrate (ABR) streams, enabling ad decision routing and data collection to facilitate targeted ad placements. This solution abstracts the complexities of an increasingly sophisticated delivery and advertising ecosystem to enable operators to efficiently expand existing VOD and linear advertising models to any IP device.

“As video becomes more mobile, the opportunity to tailor content and ads – down to the individual viewer – expands immensely,” said Susan George, SVP of Sales and Distribution of SeaWell Networks. “Together, SeaWell Networks and ARRIS provide an intelligent ad delivery platform, driving higher premiums and allowing distributors to increase the revenue earned per stream.”

The combination of Spectrum and AdManager focuses on increasing buy-side value through behavioral targeting. This translates into higher revenues for network providers, while simplifying operations and ensuring scalability for new service offerings.

“The successful interoperability of ARRIS and SeaWell Networks allows relevant ads to be delivered, based on contextual data,” said Neerav Shah, ARRIS VP of Product Line Management. “This relationship further demonstrates ARRIS leadership in advertising technology and our commitment to bringing innovative and open standard solutions to the market in order to monetize multi-screen services.”
