How to add SCTE triggers to your program schedule

TVU Channel SCTE triggers are validated by most third-party ad insertion programs. SCTE can be passed through to the CDN, scheduled, or added on the fly in real-time. Once the commercial content signal type duration completes, the program resumes where it left off. For full details on maximizing the monetization through scheduled and passthrough SCTE triggers, please contact us at support@tvunetworks.com.

  1. Click Playout at the top of the window.
