Transport Stream Splicing
The TS Splicer is a software based product that splices multiple Transport Streams – frame accurately. It combines the capabilities of decoding SCTE 35 opt-out signalling, media storage and splicing, to offer a complete media insertion system. The TS Splicer is available as a standalone product or can be combined with Starfish playlist and media management products to build a complete automated Ad insertion or media replacement system.
It has applications in traditional broadcast, IPTV, satellite and cable TV systems.
