Each sponsor trailer must be delivered in a separate file. The file name may not exceed 32 characters. Please make sure that the file name does not include any special characters (including ß, ä, ö, (, <, & ...). The SOM should start at 00:00:00:00. Only MXF files may be placed on the server.
For first-time users of our system it is required to send us a test file for our approval in advance, otherwise we are unable to guarantee a broadcast of the sponsor trailer. Please take into account that we need the file five working days before the broadcast, as they still need to be approved regarding technical specifications and content. If necessary, however, a shorter term solution can be arranged on demand.
