ESB3023 - the ew-hlsingest service

The service consumes live HLS v3 sources. The sources must be multiplexed video and audio in each variant. Separate audio, video or subtitles are not supported. Higher HLS versions are not supported.

The output segments are typically written to a RAM disk, and are to be be consumed by the edgeware CBM (esb3003) for further integration with the Edgeware repackager.

The output segments will be generated with a fixed average segment duration that is constant over time. To achieve this, it is required that the input segments have a fixed segment duration except at ad boundaries signalled by SCTE-35 markers. At such boundaries, the input segments should be split by an extra IDR-frame.
