Blanking is Global - AWS Elemental Live

This is version 2.18 of the AWS Elemental Live documentation. This is the latest version. For prior versions, see the Previous Versions section of AWS Elemental Live and AWS Elemental Statmux Documentation.

Blanking is Global

Both Ad avail blanking and Blackout apply to all outputs. You cannot choose to blank out for some outputs and not blank out for others: it is an all-or-nothing decision.

Compare Blanking to Manifest Decoration and Passthrough

Manifest decoration and passthrough have a smaller scope than blanking : they apply only to outputs that support these features.

Take important note of this fact, because if you do not do passthrough and do not do manifest decoration in a given output (because these are not supported or because you choose not to) but you do implement blanking, there are no “markers” for where the blanked content occurs.

To identify where this blanking is occurring. look for the IDR I-frames that identify where the SCTE-35 message used to be.
