Segment Swapping

    INISOFT On-demand streamer can dynamically change Video/Audio Segments without buffering. Notable applications of this feature are

    • Ad-Insertion : Dynamically Insert Ad Segment into VoD Stream. This enables personalized Ad without buffering.
    • Regional scene adaptation : Dynamically choose video scenes presenting proper textual (lingual) display in 3D Animation. No need to encode whole video for regional adaptation. Additional region (audio/ video) support can be done at minimal cost at any time.
