Sophisticated transport stream processing13 September 2016
The latest generation of TS Splicer is at IBC2016. TS Splicer combines multiple-channel, frame-accurate transport stream media splicing with media storage and SCTE 35 opt-out signal decoding.
Peter Blatchford, marketing director, Starfish, said: “As the momentum towards OTT and IP delivery gathers pace, sophisticated transport stream processing becomes increasingly relevant. Legacy splicing technologies were often hampered by issues
with channel counts, propagation delays and GOP boundary limitations. TS Splicer was designed to address those issues.”
TS Splicer runs on generic, enterprise-grade hardware and provides simultaneous splicing of more than 20 HD or SD video services on a single server. It supports MPEG-2, H.264 and HEVC encoded media, and its frame-accurate splicing mode is designed to ensure that input video signal quality is retained. Audio splicing is also a key benefit of TS Splicer, claimed the company, with the ability to ‘effortlessly’ splice AC-3 and MPEG-1 Layer II streams.
