Creating advertisement policies

Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2

You can use policies to control how advertising content is received by users. An advertisement policy defines the user experience by combining the following:

  • Events. You can use an event to trigger a switch to a certain advertisement. For example, in a live broadcast, you can use an event to insert local advertising in place of regional advertising and vice versa.

  • Playlist attributes. You can configure playlist attributes to control the user experience with advertising. For example, if you set the noSkip attribute to True, the fast-forward and seek controls on the user's player are disabled. For the user to continue to receive the content in the playlist, the advertisement must play to completion.
