What is Server Side Ad Insertion?

Server Side Ad Insertion (SSAI) allows media owners to insert ads directly into the primary content stream. This can be played from the same source location to minimize the possibility of buffering brought on by excessive format and bitrate variations during video playback. Likewise, this process allows for a smooth transition switching between content and ad, providing the same user experience as broadcast TV. The diagram below shows an example of SSAI:

AWS SSAI MediaTailor is different from other SSAI solutions, due to their implementation of detailed client-side viewing metrics. The majority of SSAI solutions don’t provide detailed metrics, as they report on CDN server logs or ad servers. AWS SSAI MediaTailor solution provides advertisers with more personalised and granular metrics from their client base.
