Triton Digital has launched Ad Marker Rules, an automated ad placement system that provides publishers with the ability to set rules that specify the minimum number of ad markers and ads per marker for an audio clip, based on the clip duration. The system will now be available to all customers using the Omny Studio Campaign Manager (OCM) or the Triton Advertising Platform (Tap). Triton says often, digital audio publishers do not place enough mid-roll markers before publishing, which has a negative impact on ad revenue. Its system aims to overcome that by empowering publishers to create and automate duration-based rules to ensure the desired amount of ad markers are always placed in radio shows and podcast episodes before publishing.
