Fields for a splice_insert message - AWS Elemental MediaLive

Fields for a splice_insert message

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

Field Description
Action type SCTE-35 Splice Insert.
Action name A name for this splice_insert action. For example, splice_insert actions could be numbered sequentially, restarting every day or every month.
Start type Fixed or Follow or Immediate.
Date and time

If the Start type is Fixed, specify the UTC start time for the splice_insert action. 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 for the splice event. Enter an ID for the splice event that is unique among all scheduled and active splice_insert messages in this channel. A message is active if the schedule action is in process in the channel and has not completed.
Duration The duration for the splice event. Complete in one of these ways:
  • Enter the duration, in 90-kHz ticks. For example, 1350000, which is equal to 15 seconds.

  • Leave empty to create a message with no duration.

The splice_insert inserted in the transport stream will have the following:

segmentation_event_cancel_indicator = 0 out_of_network = 1 duration_flag = 1 duration = the specified time

Or

segmentation_event_cancel_indicator = 0 out_of_network = 1 duration_flag = 0
