Imagine Integrates SureFire Ad Server into Amazon Web Services

Cloud Solutions
Imagine Communications announces that its SureFire video ad server is now available in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Solutions Library. A broadcast-quality ad decisioning solution for OTT, SureFire leverages an advanced set of broadcast rules and audience data across CTV, FAST, AVOD, and addressable linear platforms, enabling media companies to sell and fulfill campaigns across their entire audience and deliver a consistent, quality experience for both viewers and advertisers.

The AWS Solutions Library enables customers to easily browse curated solutions built by AWS and AWS Partners for a broad range of industry and technology use cases. Whether organizations prefer off-the-shelf deployments or customizable architectures, the AWS Solutions Library enables fast discovery of AWS-vetted solutions and guidance that help rapidly address relevant business challenges. 

SureFire operates as a managed cloud service on AWS, so it has flexibility and scale to meet the needs of any media company. Auto-scaling enables SureFire to support millions of concurrent viewers, with sub-100ms response times and six 9s reliability even under heavy load. It uses the advertising industry-standard VAST and VMAP protocols to communicate broadcast-quality dynamic ad insertion instructions with AWS Elemental MediaTailor.

Earlier this year, SureFire successfully completed the AWS Foundational Technical Review (FTR), which was part of the technical compliance step required for launch in the AWS Solutions Library. The AWS FTR is an added layer of clear understanding around technical and security evaluation, which in turn allows the products to be sold and supported in AWS Marketplace, a digital catalog with thousands of software listings from independent software vendors that make it easy to find, test, buy, and deploy software that runs on AWS.
