New tool for ad insertion
Today a new tool is announced in the toolbox called Scissor which focuses on combining live streams and static video files into one or multiple live output streams. Similarly to Clamp it allows you to control and program the content of the live stream dynamically using JSON instructions in an ad-hoc way or based on a predefined schedule. The functionality provided allows you to insert advertisements or arbitrary vod content into your streaming events on demand by simply editing a control file. Scissor immediately picks up and processes the changes.
