Introduction

AWS Elemental MediaTailor is a personalized and monetized service that scales server-side ad insertion.

The service enables you to:

  • Serve targeted ads to viewers while maintaining broadcast quality in over-the-top (OTT) video applications.
  • Track ad views for accurate ad reporting.

AWS Elemental MediaTailor offers important advances over traditional ad-tracking systems:

  • Ads are better monetized, more consistent in video quality and resolution, and easier to manage across multi-platform environments.
  • Ad workflow is simplified by allowing all IP-connected devices to render ads in the same way as they render other content.
  • Advanced tracking of ad views, which further increases the monetization of content.

Setup

To set up the OpsRamp AWS integration and discover the AWS service, go to AWS Integration Discovery Profile and select MediaTailor.
