Ad Map The Ad Map defines the available ad breaks or opportunities in a video stream. LiveRail uses the Ad Map to decide what types of ads to retrieve, such as pre-, mid-, or post-roll ads, and how many ads to retrieve. By default the Ad Map configured in your LiveRail account will be applied, however if you specify an Ad Map for your Ad Set it will over-ride the default Ad Map configured in the LiveRail system.
Use Custom Metadata Metadata ingestion is disabled by default. You can enable this feature to automatically pass custom metadata from your video asset to LiveRail's system. You will need to (1) enable this feature for the ad set as well as (2) add custom metadata to your video asset within Backlot.
