Microsoft Smooth Output

Microsoft Smooth output does not support passthrough of the SCTE-35 messages, but does support instructions in the sparse track. The following table shows the valid processing options.

SCTE-35 Passthrough Manifest Decoration Blanking and Blackout Effect
Not applicable (SCTE-35 messages are never included in output) Enabled Yes or No SCTE-35 messages are removed from the video stream. But instructions are included in the sparse track. You could also implement blanking and blackout.
Not applicable Disabled No SCTE-35 messages are removed from the output. The sparse track doesn't include instructions. Don't implement blanking or blackout because without SCTE-35 messages in the video stream and without data in the sparse track, it will be impossible to find these blanks and blackouts programmatically in the output.
