The AI-powered pipeline developed by them can precisely define the end of a period and automatically insert an advertisement block. This is a promising way of workflow automation enablement,” explains Sebastian Kramer, SVP of Business Development and Product Management at NAGRA.

Since we already have a credible technological stack for context-aware ad insertion and overall sports content understanding, we’ve happily enrolled in this pilot project,” states Oleg Gubin, CEO at AIHunters.
