Create playlists and insert commercials:
Programs play at the exact scheduled time; SCTE markers inserted into programs indicate commercial breaks, and commercials are inserted as scheduled.
Interrupt programs with breaking news
Unscheduled live segments, such as breaking news, can interrupt the schedule, which then resumes automatically when the live segment ends.
