Unified Streaming’s Unified Origin software is now available on Microsoft Azure, and can be employed for one-time usage such as live events, or to cover extra loads in video streaming workflows.
Unified Origin enables online broadcasters and video service providers to stream their live and VoD content from one source to multiple clients and devices.
Broadcasters and video providers can ingest video in a single format and package it on-the-fly to streaming fomats such as HLS, MPEG-DASH, HDS and HSS. It is also compatible with AVC, HEVC, HDR and Dolby Vision and supports all the major DRM systems (Adobe Access, FairPlay, Marlin, PlayReady and Widevine), timed metadata (including SCTE-35 for ad insertion), and accessibility features, such as captions and subtitles.
“More and more streaming companies want to take ownership of their video workflows. To be successful, they need flexibility in a way that is quick to launch and cost-effective, while delivering a broadcast-quality experience. Unified Origin delivers this and we’re looking forward to further expanding our product offering on Microsoft Azure,” said Simon Westbroek, VP global sales at Unified Streaming.
