Working Group 5 of the Digital Video Subcommittee is focused on the development of standards and practices that support an important revenue stream for the cable industry: advertising insertion into programs. Affecting both the content providers and the operators themselves, advertising revenue continues to grow in importance and the variety of programming vehicles expands beyond traditional QAM-based "linear television" to include IP distribution, On Demand, and TV Everywhere.
