broadpeak.io provides Manifest Manipulation functionality with applications such as Content Replacement, Virtual Channel and Dynamic Ad Insertion. You can find general information on the different applications hosted by our platform on our web site.

The module sits between your Origin or CDN and the Client/Player. It acts as a service that pulls the manifest from your source stream and combines it with alternative or additional content, into a single stream that can be delivered to any application, player or website. broadpeak.io also enables you to create a personal experience for each of your end-users, by controlling all the individual streaming sessions with a variety of criteria.
