SCTE-35 markers support in Nimble Streamer Playout

We're glad to introduce an update for Nimble Streamer Playout feature (also referred to as a Server Playlist sometimes). It now provides enhanced functionality for SCTE-35 markers insertion through the playlist. Any systems with SCTE35 support can process the Playlist output in order to insert ads. E.g. Nimble Advertizer can do that for you.

The latest update introduces a new section in playlists called "Scte35Markers". It allows the insertion of SCTE-35 markers at a specific time spot within a playout-generated stream. Using key parameters like "Type", "Start", and "Duration" users can precisely control marker placement.

"In" and "Out" markers types are supported.

Out” markers support either a precise time in UTC format ("YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS") or the offset from the beginning of the currently running file set in milliseconds.

Here's a self-explanatory example:

  "Type": "vod",
  "Start": 0,
  "Duration": 600000,
  "MaxIterations": 0,
  "Source": "test/content/mp4/sample.mp4",
  "Scte35Markers": [
    { "Start": "2023-11-03 04:00:00", "Type": "Out", "Duration": 2000 },
    { "Start": "2023-11-03 04:00:02", "Type": "In" }

You can find full example on Nimble Streamer Playout page.

The improved Playout in Nimble Streamer allows effortlessly inserting SCTE-35 markers directly through the playlist, eliminating the need for additional Nimble API calls.

Install the latest Nimble Streamer version and check these enhancements.

We look forward to enhancing your streaming experience. Let us know if you have any questions.
