Cobalt Digital To Show Transport Stream Splicing Solution

Addressing the increasing need for reliable and seamless ad insertion, at the 2019 NAB Show Cobalt Digital will show new transport stream splicing technology it now offers thanks to a new partnership with UK-based Starfish Technologies.

The combined solution creates an affordable, automated ad insertion or media replacement system for broadcast, IPTV, satellite, and cable TV applications.

Designed to be a complete replacement for ad insertion or content blocking applications, the TS Splicer combines the functionality of an integrated ad server, SCTE-35 opt-out signal decoding, input stream switching, and transport stream splicing. It takes in transport streams with SCTE-35 triggers and inserts advertisements based on the embedded control signals. The fully configurable TS Splicer performs a technically clean media switch with minimal propagation delay.

Cobalt Digital offers a range of MPEG encoders and decoders, as well as a series of frame synchronizers and scalers, supporting with SCTE-104 injection. Compatible units include the BBG-1002 Series of standalone encoders, 9902 and 9904 Series openGear cards, and the new 9992-ENC-HEVC (H.265) card, which offers upgradable multi-channel MPEG-2/AVC encoding.
