Scopus’ ad-insertion platform gets CableLabs’ OK
The testing ensures that the product complies with the SCTE-30 and SCTE-35 standards, as well as that it interoperates with leading ad servers and other cable headend equipment.
The intelligent video splicer (IVG) provides concurrent ad insertion, grooming and rate-shaping capabilities for digital video network architectures, the company said. The platform offers SD and HD splicing and standards-based DPI implementation.
Based on programmable DSP technology, the platform integrates Scopus’ bit rate reduction and statistical multiplexing algorithms, providing high-quality video at low bit rates. Also, the IVG has networking support for video routing over IP and an advanced redundancy fail over mechanism.
