Advertising Block

Post by djanji »

Is it possible that in the advertising block we can move ads by order. And is it possible that ads are categorized by category (for example: car dealers, shop, concerts, ...) in order to avoid the ads of the same category one after the other?

Yes, you can already assign two attributes to a advert campaign, which are doing exactly what you are looking for.
For details, press the '?' icon in the Campaign Editor dialog.

Priority: (Campaign Prioriry)
A priority can be used to define the order in which campaigns are played within an advert-slot. Campaigns with a higher priority will be played first.
Note: When using campaign keys this priority might get shifted resulting in campaigns with a lower priority being played first, as the campaign key is evaluated regardless of the priority.

Key: (Campaign Key)
A key can be used to prevent, that adverts having the same key will be played out subsequently one after the other.
Note: This of course can not always be guaranteed, e.g. when using too less campaigns with different campaign keys.


If you furthermore enable the "AllowEditing" option for a related Overlay Scheduler entry, you are also able to even manually edit the generated overlay playlist within the overlay player prior to its start.

Male and female voice: Advertising Block

Post by audiostreamen »

Dear sir,

It is posible that ads are categorized by category (for example: car dealers, shop, concerts, ...) in order to avoid the ads of the same category one after the other?

Is it also posible that voices are categorized by category (for example: promo 1 female voice, promo 2 male voice, ...) in order to avoid the ads of the same voice one after the other?


Best regards,

Benny

You might use the above "Key" property to do so.
The Key property is basically a string; so you can define it as you like.
E.g. you might specify "Car Dealer, Male" as well as "Car Dealer, Female" as keys.

So I assume, that one "Key" value (which can be used as any category) is sufficient.
The reason is simple: Depending on the overall number of ads you play in one slot, it might not always be guaranteed, that 2 keys are played back to back, i.e. when using too less campaigns with different campaign keys.
The more categories you use, the more likely this is...

Dear Bernd,

Thanks for the clear answer.

This would be great

set the key "value beforehand
For example: car garage, hairdressers,
and then a puldown menu for the key in the Campaing popup.

Is this posible?

Best regards,

Benny
