Splicing / Ad Replacement

Replace a TV channel with another signal. Replacement is signaled in-band with SCTE-35, out-of-band via API, or automatically detected with our patent-pending image recognition algorithm.

Case Study: France 24

In order to respect the prohibition of advertising in some countries, France 24 needs to implement a system able to automatically replace advertising breaks by alternative content. To complete this project, France 24 doesn’t need to overcome one but three challenges at a time!

  • To not add any additional step in its existing workflow – and thus not overload existing or require additional staff
  • To not modify streams
  • To not make major infrastructure changes.

The OpenHeadend solution automates the whole process and combines frame-accurate image recognition with advanced matrix switching, resulting in seamless and transparent splicing without affecting picture quality.
