Ad Insertion, Splicing and Playout
Industry leading MPEG splicing solutions
It is accepted by the broadcast industry that MPEG splicing is the most efficient way of deploying scalable content replacement and advertising insertion in transport stream broadcast environments. Mediaware is a leading authority in compressed domain splicing with over a decade of real-world broadcast experience delivering ad insertion, splicing and playout solutions for SD, HD and UltraHD HEVC.
Compressed domain splicing is the process of digitally switching from one compressed digital TV signal to another without decoding either signal back to uncompressed baseband video and audio. Seamless, frame-accurate MPEG splicing is desirable in commercial broadcast environments because it reduces costs, streamlines operations and achieves a better quality broadcast by avoiding unnecessary decode/re-encode steps.
Mediaware software can splice:
- Between two or more live video streams
- Between a live stream and a file stored on a server
- Between two files stored on a server
Our digital processing technology can be used to insert or replace ads, programming, audio and subtitles files into multiple transport streams with bulletproof reliability.
