Integrated Server Side Ad Insertion

Fast Engine boasts the most flexible yet robust SSAI solution for any Linear Channel aggregation service. Control your own ad insertion using an out-of-the-box SSAI solution or honor your content partner’s existing streams complete with passthrough advertising parameters delivered through today’s top providers such as :

  • Amagi Thunderstorm
  • Wurl Ad Spring
  • Publica SSAI
  • AWS Mediatailor

Programming Alerts

FAST Engine streams fully automated playout systems from multiple origins. This can give aggregators a lack of control over any program scheduling issues originating from the source. This can result in a less than desirable user experience. FAST Engine Alerts uses New Relic to monitor each channel’s program data and triggers alerts for any missing or corrupted programming.  These alerts can be connected to dedicated Slack Channels alerting stakeholders of potential programming issues coming up in the future giving them time to reach out to their channel providers to correct the issue.
