Inserting SCTE-35 Messages Using the Schedule - AWS Elemental MediaLive

Inserting SCTE-35 Messages Using the Schedule

Use the channel schedule to insert SCTE-35 messages in the content. For example, you can add an action in the channel schedule to insert a splice insert in the running channel at a specific time.

The main use case for this feature is to add SCTE-35 messages, when the source content doesn't already include SCTE-35 messages.

To insert SCTE-35 messages in the content, create actions in the schedule. For detailed information, see Working with the AWS Elemental MediaLive Schedule.

After MediaLive inserts the SCTE-35 message in the channel, MediaLive processes the message in the same way as it would process SCTE-35 messages that were in the input. You define this processing when you create the channel and configure these options:

  • Blanking

  • Blackout

  • Manifest decoration

  • Passthrough

For a summary of these options, see Scope of Processing by Feature and Supported Features by Output Type.
