About Us

On The Spot Media, a premier distributor of digital advertising content, was founded by advertising services industry pioneers nearly 10 years ago. We’ve delivered millions of HD and SD spots to over 10,000 destinations. Rather than just another technology company, we’re a services company that leverages state-of-the-art, web-based solutions to simplify our clients’ media delivery process.

At On The Spot Media, you don’t have to be a huge company to get the best pricing and support. We focus on delivering highly personalized service to the Fortune 1000, mid-market brands and their agencies, not just the Fortune 50. The brands and agencies that come to us typically care deeply about personalized service, are highly price sensitive, and want to have a voice.

While our national, network advertisers love us–either as their primary or secondary spot delivery firm–we’re particularly suited to service advertisers with lots of complex, local spot delivery requirements, those with primarily a regional focus, political campaigns requiring speed and flexibility, or any advertiser or agency seeking more personalized service.

Services

Advertising Spot Distribution Services

On The Spot Media is a premier, nationwide distributor of TV ad spots. We’re one of only a handful of firms that manage the entire spot delivery process, from ingestion to QC to delivery, in-house on our own state-of-the-art, web-based network. This provides us, and you, full transparency and control across the entire process. We deliver HD and SD video to more than 10,000 stations, networks and cable outlets across North America. We’re known in the industry for the quality of our support and the helpfulness of our exceptionally friendly and experienced team.

On The Spot Media is the originator of pure digital pricing, with no after-hours premiums, no surcharges, no cut-off times. We’ve let go of those unnecessary fees held over from the days of tape and other physical media. You should, too!

At On The Spot Media, we’ve limited, by design, our service portfolio to ad delivery and supporting offerings like production services. We focus on what we do best, and do it better than anyone else. We invite you to experience that difference.

Years Delivering Media

Technology

Our EZSpot Ad Delivery platform is proprietary and state-of-the art. It was purpose built to provide fast, very high quality distribution of digital HD and SD media to any web enabled destination in North America.

We were pioneers helping the industry move from tape to digital, and we’ve taken the best of all we’ve learned delivering next generation technology solutions.

Unlike many other ad distribution firms, On The Spot Media uses our own network to get spots to their destination. We’re not a patchwork of multiple providers, cobbled together to create a solution. Since every part of the process is managed in-house—from ingestion, to QC, to transcoding, to transmission and delivery, we have full transparency and control over the entire process.

And our remarkable CYBORG/QC—part human, part machine—quality control gates ensure perfect spot quality, every time.

 

For Broadcasters

We make life just a little easier for Broadcasters. On The Spot Media can customize and deliver pretty much any file format and technical spec you may require. Our software can be set up to automatically download spots during off peak hours to better manage bandwidth, and is built to work with most of the popular station automation systems like Telestream’s Flip Factory, Harris Al, etc.

Our software can run on almost any Windows-based computer with Internet access. Many stations choose to run it on a computer that is already supporting other applications, since it can be set to download at off hours. Unlike other systems out there, ours does not require a human operator in order to ingest the spot for air – we do all of the work for you, even when other applications are in use.

EZTraffic

EZTraffic is our smart and easy way for stations to manage both Media and Traffic Instructions. By using our simple web-interface, broadcasters can access Traffic Instructions within minutes of the order being placed and keep them accessible for up to six months. EZTraffic eliminates the need for stations to call and ask to have Instructions resent. Accidentally purged your spot? No worries, just simply log on and click the resend button. Your spot will be digitally sent to your server immediately – with no charge to your station or the client.

EZTraffic also allows stations to track the delivery status of incoming spots, whether they’re arriving electronically or via tape.

And the best news of all, our technology is fully supported 24×7 by experienced technicians. You’ll never get voicemail when you call On The Spot Media for help. Ever.
