AdapTV has two different models – the standard model and the marketplace. The standard model allows Kaltura partners to define their own ads. The marketplace provides the customer the ability to connect with all sorts of ad companies to choose the most fitting ads.

- Go to your AdapTV account, define ads, scheduling, targeting, etc. on the AdapTV end.
- Go to the Studio tab and edit an existing player or create a new one.
- Select the Advertising tab.
- Enable ads for the selected player.

The Kaltura partner administrator should contact their ad server company to obtain the SWF URL and the proper Key-Value Pairs to insert.
