Welcome to the world of Total Video; welcome to smartclip!



Your role

With the digitization of classical TV and radio advertising a new challenge has arised: while traditional digital advertisements have been designed to fill an ad opportunity with only a single ad, modern ad decision systems need to be capable of filling ad opportunities with a sequence of ads which has to follow complex rule sets and also hybrid models of digital and linear ads are required.
