BAYSIDE, CALIFORNIA,�August�14, 2017���Pioneering content delivery network and streaming media provider�StreamGuys�will�bring its targeted advertising innovations and thought leadership for podcasting to the upcoming Podcast Movement (August 23-25, Anaheim Marriott), with a focus on how to monetize, scale and deliver on-demand content.�

At�StreamGuys��initial presence at�Podcast Movement last year, the company outlined how its evolving SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) toolset helped businesses effectively create podcasts and manage on-demand content. This year,�StreamGuys�will demonstrate how broadcasters can maximize the scope and effectiveness of their monetization efforts through dynamic ad insertion, and optimize relevance and effectiveness for both new and evergreen content.

StreamGuys�will�this year unveil and�demonstrate its�full-service Podcast CMS, which includes the trend-setting�SGrecast�system for podcast and side channel creation;�and�SGmetadata, which�now�features an enhanced metadata trigger feature set for�server-side ad insertion.�StreamGuys�will showcase�these solutions�in the Pro Networking Lounge, which the company�will sponsor�this year.�

As part of the�SGrecast�demonstration,�StreamGuys�will unveil a new on-demand media player that allows users to select a podcast, and choose a specific episode for which to build a player. That player can easily be shared on social media platforms or embedded on a website, with a user-friendly GUI that includes customizable options such as background color, icon color and font. The new on-demand player also integrates subscription buttons for RSS, iTunes and Google Play among other options.

Furthermore,�StreamGuys�Global Sales Executive Matt Kellogg will�serve as a panelist for��If Jesus Had a Podcast,� the event�s first-ever�worship-focused podcast panel. Matt and his co-presenters will discuss the specific challenges of�faith-based�podcasting,�including�how to effectively monetize and attract attention to podcasts�as options quickly escalate.

�Last�year at Podcast Movement it was very clear that there was a significant hunger for podcasting coming from enterprise companies, including large radio station groups, but many questions and concerns around how to effectively build a podcasting strategy,� said Kellogg. �Our philosophy at�StreamGuys�has always been to provide high�intelligence in the solution, an ability to�monetize the solution, and white glove support and scalability for our�partners. The pain points that content providers feel are the same pain points we deal with every�day, and Podcast Movement presents a unique opportunity to communicate that we are here to help move their strategies forward.�
