Unified Origin - VOD Streaming with DRM

Unified Origin - VOD Streaming with DRM

By: Unified Streaming Latest Version: 1.14.2

Product Overview

Unified Origin enables you to dynamically package VOD content from one source format (MP4, fragmented MP4, or HLS) to all formats i.e. HLS (TS & CMAF), (DVB-) DASH, HbbTV, HDS, and Smooth. All major DRM systems are supported.

Dynamic packaging is the process of keeping only a single source on disk, and delivering content in a requested output format by generating that output from the source at the moment the request is received, i.e. dynamically or just-in-time. Adding encryption (and DRM) can be part of it. Everything is generated on-the-fly so a dynamic workflow allows for quick changes to the configuration of your streams because it does not require changes to the source on disk.

Unified Origin supports all the major DRM systems (Adobe Access, FairPlay, Marlin, PlayReady, and Widevine). AVC, HEVC, HDR, and Dolby Vision are all compatible.

DRM may come as pre-encrypted content, on-the-fly encryption of clear content, and trans-DRM. Trans-DRM is a unique feature allowing on-the-fly change of DRM using pre-encrypted content. Common encryption (CENC) is also supported. Both CENC and trans-DRM give flexibility to DRM and playout format.

Unified Origin supports leading audio technology, such as DTS Express, Dolby Atmos, Dolby Digital Plus, and HE-AAC v2, along with subtitles and captions. Adding an audio description track and subtitles or captions using TTML or WebVTT makes your content more accessible.
