The following explains how publishers can add IRIS.TV data to their Amagi channels.
There are 5 steps to add IRIS.TV data to channels powered by Amagi:
Provide video data to IRIS.TV via the Amagi Channel API
Amagi to pass the Amagi asset_id (their Content ID) on all ad requests
Ensure all your supply tags have the content_id macro added
Turn on the IRIS.TV Context API in your ad server
- Pass the IRIS_ID to SSP partners
Step 1: Pulling video data from Amagi:
IRIS.TV has a central integration with the Amagi Channel API enabling IRIS.TV to gain access to a publishers video metadata without any development work needed by the publisher.
Providing Channel API Access to IRIS.TV:
Publishers should provide the following Channel API credentials to IRIS.TV:
- Channel ID
Step 2: Amagi to pass the Amagi asset_id on all ad requests:
Confirm with Amagi that they are passing the Amagi asset_id (their Content ID) on all ad requests for all distributors and rights of sale.
Step 3: Ensure all your supply tags have the content_id macro added
Ensure you have added the content_id macro to all your supply tags to enable the Amagi asset_id to be ingested into your ad-server.
- Please reference your ad server's documentation for more information on how to format this macro.
Step 4: Turn on the IRIS.TV Context API in your ad server:
Ensure you have turned on the IRIS.TV Context API in your ad server to enable the IRIS_ID to be added to your ad requests using the Amagi asset_id to match the content to the IRIS_ID.

Step 5: Passing IRIS.TV data to the SSPs:
Once the IRIS.TV data has been passed to the ad server the publisher will need to update their connection with each SSP per our normal process/steps for each SSP. See here for further documentation.
