ThinkAnalytics, the specialist in Al-based TV content discovery, viewer data insights, and targeted advertising has integrated its new ThinkFAST AI-powered content scheduling Free Ad-Supported Streaming TV (FAST) channel solution with AWS Elemental MediaTailor. By leveraging AI-powered intelligent scheduling, ThinkFAST streamlines the process, resulting in higher audience engagement and reduced churn rates.

ThinkFAST’s integration with AWS Elemental MediaTailor offers customers launching and running FAST channels a reduction in time to market. Elemental MediaTailor can be used as the destination for the schedule created by ThinkFAST to create low-cost virtual live FAST channels without the need for a live encoder.

Then they can use Elemental MediaTailor Ad Insertion to enable seamless Server-Side Ad Insertions (SSAI) by integrating with standard video ad decision servers to dynamically insert personalised ads during scheduled ad breaks for channels curated by ThinkFAST.

“The race is on for content rights holders to launch new channels and to keep existing channel lineups refreshed with curated programming to increase audience engagement. ThinkFAST’s integration with AWS Elemental MediaTailor streamlines the labor-intensive process of curating and scheduling FAST channels,” said Marc Aldrich, CEO of ThinkAnalytics. “Increasing engagement and advertising revenue potential for FAST operators is key and ThinkAnalytics’ solution integrated with Elemental MediaTailor equips rights holders with the tools to succeed in FAST.”
