In this paper, we present a cloud-based live video streaming and advertising platform solution that enables internet-based live broadcasts for TV channels. The platform supports server-side dynamic ad insertion with automated ad detection and personalized ad placement. A unique feature of our solution is an interactive personalized single ad that can be inserted at desired locations in the live stream independent of broadcaster's commercial break period, which increases ad viewability up to 95% and completion rate up to 97% on average. The platform also provides management interfaces both for the broadcaster as well as for the advertisement agencies enabling fully automated programmatic TV ads.
