Canoe, the advertising technology company owned by the major cable operators, said it has dynamically inserted more than 100 billion commercials into video-on-demand programming since September 2012.

Dynamic ad insertion lets programmers and cable operators put fresh ads in shows when they are watched on demand. It also allows advertisers to better target the viewers they want to reach.

“We are proud of the value we have been able to create for our programmers, MVPDs and the television advertising community” said Joel Hassell, CEO of Canoe, in a statement. “We expect cable VOD to remain healthy for years to come and we look forward to providing the same level of quality assurance and reliability for the next 100 billion.”

Canoe inserts ads in programming in 36 million cable households served by Charter, Comcast and Cox.
