NEW YORK, NY — Aniview, a global leader in video advertising technology and monetization, announced its partnership with Evrideo, a leading cloud-based automated distribution provider for the burgeoning CTV advertising market. Aniview and Evrideo’s combined state-of-the-art solution brings together the industry’s best-in-class providers for a complete solution enabling the creation, distribution, and monetization needs of broadcasters, free ad-supported TV (FAST) network providers and CTV device manufacturers (OEMs) worldwide. In addition, Aniview announced the appointment of adtech veteran Greg Smith, who brings experience at DeepIntent, McKinsey & Co, Tremor Video and others, as its General Manager for North America.
The combined capabilities of Aniview and Evrideo will enable content creators to launch and monetize streaming channels quickly, requiring zero upfront investment or infrastructure costs. Global customers can access Evrideo’s playout and distribution capabilities, leveraging technology that manages multiple bouquets of FAST channels and is designed to work with all video formats to deliver broadcast-quality channels with automated playout, graphics, and audio. In addition, customers will have access to Aniview’s pioneering dynamic ad insertion (DAI) technology, as well as its Video Ad Server and Monetization Marketplace. Under the terms of the agreement, Aniview will have exclusive rights to monetize Evrideo-powered CTV channels. This deal comes at a time of massive growth for CTV advertising, which is expected to grow 27% to $26.9 billion in 2023 according to eMarketer.
“Our vision has always been to deliver the foremost monetization capabilities to our customers across the globe,” said Alon Carmel, CEO of Aniview. “Evrideo’s expertise in playout technology will help us expand our offerings beyond monetization and enable Aniview to provide a unified solution that focuses on broadcast-grade channel creation, content distribution, as well as CTV advertising. The partnership is a natural progression in Aniview’s journey from being a leading authority in monetization to a one-stop solution in the CTV space.”
“We will bring the combination of the best monetization technology and high-quality cloud playout solution to publishers all over the world, across all devices and platforms,” said Avi Zenou, CEO and Co-Founder, Evrideo. “Through Aniview’s solution, we are able to bring our ground-breaking technology to publishers, providing flexibility and cost-effectiveness to customers in how they launch and deliver FAST channels.”
