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.

Use the OpsRamp AWS public cloud integration to discover and collect metrics against the AWS service.
