Integrate Nielsen data to measure audiences on iOS and Android:

As you may have heard, Adobe has struck a strategic alliance with Nielsen that will provide broadcasters, cable networks and MVPDs with comparable metrics in Adobe Analytics to measure audiences accurately across IP-connected screens, including desktops, smartphones, tablets, game consoles, and over-the-top (OTT) devices. As part of the initial phases of this effort, the Nielsen SDK is now available within Adobe Primetime TVSDK for iOS and Android.

Dynamically insert ads for a targeted ad experience once the C3 window has expired:

With Adobe Primetime’s latest TVSDK, new ads can be dynamically inserted to replace linear ads already baked into a C3/C7 VOD asset.  This reduces the time to deliver engaging and relevant ads online that can be effectively monetized.

Air alternative content during blackouts for seamless viewing experience:

Adobe Primetime continues to build a robust offering to support regional blackouts. Adobe Primetime’s TVSDK now allows viewers to watch alternative programming if there is content that is blacked out in that region for that particular time frame. Once the blackout has ended, the viewer will return to original scheduled programming to ensure no disruption to their viewing experience.

 Optimized ABR for reduced buffering on Desktop and Android:

Adobe Primetime has optimized ABR logic within the latest TVSDK to reduce buffering and disruption while viewing content. If a viewer is experiencing buffering during a particular variant of ABR, Adobe Primetime’s TVSDK will no longer ramp back up to that variant during that playback session in order to sustain viewer engagement.

Stay tuned for Adobe Primetime’s deployment across even more devices in the New Year to ensure that we reach the broadest audience, whenever and wherever they want to consume content.
