Before you incorporate SERVERSIDE.AI into your video business, you should ensure that the following systems, technologies, and device/platform have already been established. While you may be using some of these already for your traditional video advertising, others are unique to SSAI and require additional implementation.
The following systems should already be established:
Ad Server and Supply-Side-Platform: The advertising service that manages your video inventory and campaigns.
Content delivery network (CDN): The origin server for all of your digital content, with HLS and/or DASH URL outputs.
Content management system (CMS): Maintains metadata for your digital video content and provides an MRSS feed output. A CMS is only required for video on demand.
After you created your company and user in Serverside.ai you will get demonstration channels that have the above systems already. You can start this way without having all systems setup in the first place.
