Supported Output Features

Blanking and Blackout

The “cue out” and “cue in” instructions in SCTE-35 messages in TS inputs line up with specific content in the video, audio, and captions streams. You can set up so that this content is blanked out in the output:

  • To blank out content for ad avails, use the ad avail blanking feature.

  • To blank out content for other messages, use the blackout feature.

The behavior that you want must be set up in the channel.

For more information, see Enabling Ad Avail Blanking in the Output and Enabling Blackout in the Output.

Manifest Decoration

Manifest decoration is supported only in HLS and Microsoft Smooth outputs:

  • You can set up HLS outputs so that their manifests include instructions that correspond to the original SCTE-35 message content from the TS input. Decorate the HLS manifest with one or more of the following types of ad markers:

    • Adobe

    • Elemental

    • SCTE-35 enhanced

  • You can set up Microsoft Smooth outputs so that the sparse track includes instructions that correspond to the original SCTE-35 message content.

The behavior that you want must be set up in the channel. For more information, see Enabling Manifest Decoration in the Output.

SCTE-35 Passthrough

You can set up TS outputs so that all the SCTE-35 messages from the input are passed through to the output. Or you can set up to remove these messages from the output.

The behavior that you want must be set up in the channel. For more information, see Enabling SCTE-35 Passthrough or Removal in the Output.
