How to create a Program Template with SCTE markers in TVU Channel

TVU Channel makes it simple for anyone to monetize their program schedule by using a Program Template with SCTE splices. Program templates are ideal for scheduling recurring daily live shows and setting program blocks for an entire day or part of a day, then applying them to a schedule before the content is fully ready. Program templates also allow direct editing of SCTE insertions and an Underplay clip function.

To create a Program Template with SCTE markers:

  1. Click the Program Template tab.
  2. Click the Plus icon.
  3. To start a new template, select With an empty document.
  4. In the Program Settings window, enter a Name in the Program Name field.
  5. Select the Media drop-down menu in the “Live/Reference Media field” and select a streaming Live or Media (MP4) source.
  6. Select your SCTE splice duration from the drop-down menu.
  7. Add a brief description of the programming.
  8. In the bottom Event panel, TVU Channel will automatically populate the events list with start and end SCTE markers along with a Reference media entry. You must leave the Reference media entry in the list for the program to execute properly.
  9. To include an SCTE splice, click the insert new row icon in the operations panel.
  10. In the Please select drop-down menu, choose SCTE(Splice).
  11. In the SCTE only drop-down menu, select Underplay Clip if you would like to have a backup media source in the event that the SCTE splice fails to run.
  12. Make the necessary SCTE start and end time adjustments in the Timing fields as needed.
  13. Click the Save button. Your new program template is now available in the left panel.
