SCTE Approves Digital Video Standards

The SCTE hasĀ approved two new digital video standards.

SCTE 104 2012, "Automation System to Compression System Communications Applications Program Interface (API)," defines the communications API between an automation system and the associated compression system that will insert SCTE 35 private sections into the outgoing transport stream. The standard serves as a companion to both SCTE 35 and SCTE 30.

SCTE 35 2012, "Digital Program Insertion Cueing Message for Cable," supports frame accurate signaling of events in MPEG-2 transport streams along with associated descriptive data. It supports the splicing of MPEG-2 transport streams for digital program insertion.

Both standards are available at http://www.scte.org/standards/Standards_Available.aspx.
