Fields for a return-to-network message

This table shows the fields that apply for an action to insert a return-to-network SCTE-35 message.

Field Description
Action type SCTE-35 Return to Network.
Action name A name for this return-to-network action. For example, splice0003_ return_early.
Start type Fixed or Follow or Immediate.
Date and time

If the Start type is Fixed, specify the UTC start time for the return. The time should be at least 15 seconds in the future.

Note that the time is the wall clock time, not the timecode in the input.

Reference action name

If the Start type is Follow, choose the input to follow. The dropdown list shows all existing input switches that are file inputs. Remember that a SCTE-35 action can follow input A only if input A is a file input and the source end behavior for input A is continue.

For information about these switching rules, see Fixed, immediate, and follow switches.

Follow point If the Start type is Follow, complete this field. The follow point is always End, to indicate that the switch will occur when the input in Reference action name has finished.
Splice event id The ID of the splice_insert that the return-to-network should end. You assigned this ID when you created the splice_insert.
