Using Mid-Roll Ads

Advertisements will only populate if they have been set up on your account. To get set up, please reach out to our Support Team.

  1. To fire off an ad, go to the Ad Trigger buttons on the right side of Production Truck.

  2. Select the duration of the ad break. Click Fire Ad.

    On the Windows version of Production Truck, you must be in Testing or Live mode in order to Fire Ads

  3. A countdown timer begins below in the center of Production Truck to signify when the ad break will begin. Once the ad break has started that will change to a countdown timer for how much time is remaining in the break.

  4. To stop the ad break early, click Stop Ad. This will stop the ad break and can continue with the broadcast. For viewers, the ad will stop and they will be taken back to the live broadcast.

    Countdown timer durations and durations of the ad breaks can be adjusted by going into the preferences window and then Timers.

  5. When you fire advertisements, you will see your splash screen displayed within the program feed area. This is due to advertisements being displayed through our video player. While you are seeing that screen, the viewer is seeing an advertisement.

    In order to change the Splash Screen go to Updating your Poster and Splash Image

  6. Below is an example of how an advertisement would appear to the viewer within our video player. Similar to other services, the viewer gets an indication in the upper left-hand corner for how much time is left in the advertisement.
