Viamedia Unveils Parrot ADS: A Revolutionary Managed Service For Simultaneous Linear and CTV Ad Insertion

Lexington, KY – November 14, 2023 – Viamedia, the leading fully-integrated independent cross-media local advertising company, today announced the launch of its innovative new managed service, the Parrot Ad Decisioning Systems (Parrot ADS). This transformative platform reimagines television advertising by enabling MVPDs to seamlessly insert regionally targeted ads on linear streams to match the local ads simultaneously running on traditional cable TV systems.


Parrot ADS presents an enormous opportunity for MVPDs to effortlessly package and execute their linear inventory with connected TV (CTV) inventory, all while better serving their local communities, businesses and advertisers,” said David Solomon, CEO at Viamedia. “Parrot ADS is not just a solution; it’s a revolution in advertising. Its simplicity and efficiency during this pivotal transitionary phase are unparalleled. It’s a genuine win for all stakeholders.”


The industry’s ongoing shift from conventional hardware-based video distribution to addressable or dynamic distribution presents a myriad of challenges. As MVPDs migrate their subscribers over time – typically 10% to 20% annually – ad buyers have had to use two separate orders and systems to reach the same audience they have been accustomed to purchasing. This incurs additional work, time, and fees, among other challenges and complexities.


Viamedia has developed a powerful solution with its new Parrot ADS. Using this single, unified platform, media buyers can purchase ad inventory regardless of the consumption method, be it traditional or addressable. This consolidation significantly simplifies purchases and execution, while empowering ad sales teams with a singular approach for selling both sets of ad inventory.


For MVPDs, Parrot ADS brings a plethora of new capabilities and advantages:

  •  Regionalize streaming distribution: Insert regionally targeted ads on linear streams that mirror the ads running on traditional SD and HD channels
  •  Protect Ad Revenues: Safeguard ad sales and revenues while transitioning from linear to full dynamic advertising
  •  Unified Ad Sales: Sales teams now have the luxury of selling both traditional and addressable inventories in a single order
  •  Accelerate time-to-market and reduce technological risks associated with transitioning linear into digital streams


Solomon added, “By mirroring the same ad on two platforms, MVPDs can optimize linear and CTV feeds for advertisers, maximizing inventory and ad sales during this critical migration.  This means greater demand and value for existing advertising inventory.”


Viamedia’s best-in-class technology stack adheres to established IAB standards and utilizes a standardized platform to enable integration with any streaming applications, ensuring MVPDs will soon be able to use the streaming app of their choice to grow digital advertising revenue similar to CTV.

“You Have to Get Them Into the Shop, Before They Can Become Buyers.”

“Without a doubt the best money I have spent is with cable TV advertising.  I am willing to say that 70 % of customers who walk into my shop for the first time mention they have seen my commercials, and had to stop and check out the bikes.  You have to get them into the shop, before they can become buyers.”

Detroit Boss Hoss Motorcycles – St. Clair Shores, MI

“…Local Cable Advertising has Helped Our Organization Reach Out to its Friends and Neighbors.”

“As a small business focused organization, local cable advertising has helped our organization reach out to its friends and neighbors. Advertising on cable is a great way to reach the customer that is invested in the local economy and the ROI is one of the best out there.”

Rebekah Cansler McGee, Uptown Lexington, Inc.

“…Customer Traffic Increased and They Told Me I Saw Your Ad on TV Last Night.”

“The Antique Market is a 23 year old antique and home furnishing store in Augusta.  A wide range of advertising methods have been used over the years but for the last five years I have become an advertiser on local cable television. It became clear to me that when my customer traffic increased and they told me “I saw your ad on TV last night” upon entering the store my decision was made to advertise with local cable only.”

Steven Fiegenba, The Antique Market Interiors & Gifts
