True Digital provides the largest OTT platform in Thailand. Main live channels are from content aggregators together with live sports events and the content produced by True Visions, the latter part of True Digital Group.
In 2019 Skylark deployed the complete automation for six IP transport streams program channels including the capability of switching from multiple IPTS sources, together with the real-time render overlayered localized graphics with Thai characters, DVB-IP subtitles and loudness control.
After the initial deployment during the summer of 2019, a second project for the backup site and the launch of new 4K program channel was commissioned in 2021. The current solution covers six main and six synced backup program channels in HD and one main and one backup program channel in 4K UHD.
In 2022, the implementation of SCTE-35 generation has been provided for the monetization of the program streams by third party distribution platforms, allowing these to automatically insert its own advertisement commercial breaks.
The marking of SCTE-35 packets in the advertisement breaks enables True Digital to monetize and repurpose their content into multiple platforms and regions without adding complexity to the existing operations.
The usage of SCTE-35 for Ad insertion instead of DMTF (audio cue tones) provides further flexibility since in the splice request packets is included the information of the duration of the commercial break, providing redundancy on the splice end requests to go back to the main program content in its absence.
True Digital is leading the IP content distribution in Thailand with the TrueID TV OTT platform and the first implementation of native 4K UHD IPTS programs with SCTE-35 signaling for dynamic Ad insertion.
