SpotXchange is a hosted ad management platform for streaming video that provides targeted ad insertion and scheduling, campaign management and reporting. It’s billed as the world’s first auction-based exchange for streaming video advertising.

SpotXchange borrows many of the best practices of sponsored search and applies them to an online video ad marketplace. These practices include, self-service tools, free market bidding, transparent reporting, an aggregated marketplace, and real-time tracking and optimization.
