- Your station's logo
Your station’s logo displays in the main window for a few seconds before elegantly sliding to it’s place on the top left section of your player, allowing the opportunity to rotate station promos and advertising in the Station Value Added Section. Logo images should be sized 470x254px.

- Photo and name of the DJ on the air
- Promotional items for sale (tickets, t-shirts, hats, etc.)
- Sponsor or paid ads
- Concert and/or special events schedules
- Schedule SVA ads to run for a full day, certain day parts, or even certain hours of the day!
Each image is clickable (we track the clicks so you can report them to clients!) and you can rotate multiple images. The size should be 470px wide by 254px high.
- Customizable Buttons
Customize your own player buttons with images or text. Images will be standard 470x254px sizing. Text can be copy and pasted from your website, or typed directly into the Customer Control Panel.
- Gateway/Pre-Roll Ads
The player allows streams to be preceded by a gateway video, or the combination of an audio/video ad with a coordinated, clickable graphic. After the gateway ad concludes, the video screen disappears revealing the regular player graphics.
You can rotate as many gateways as you would like, and you can even schedule times for them to play. Impressions and plays can be tracked with our ad reporting software.
You can also have different gateways play based on changes to the listen live link. For example, you can set a station promo gateway to show on your live stream, and a sponsor gateway to show before archive files. You can also use this feature to remove gateways from archives or from other special events.
See our Ad Specs PDF for information about formatting and sizing.
