Amsterdam, the Netherlands, April 29, 2022—Unified Streaming announced today that its solution, Unified Remix, is a streaming category winner in the 2022 NAB Show Product of the Year Awards. This official awards program recognizes the most significant and promising new products and technologies showcased by corporate partners of NAB Show.
Unified Remix enables broadcasters, operators, and streaming platforms to be much more flexible in the way they deliver video. By working with playlists, as opposed to video files, media companies may manage streams on the fly, via their own CMS. Unified Remix also helps companies increase the relevance of the OTT experience for their viewers, all the while reducing the heavy lifting that file-based workflows require.
Remix makes monetization of content and customization of the viewer experience low effort and high value, by enabling streaming solutions such as:
Broadcasters and streaming providers can increase advertising revenues through one-to-one targeting and measurement for AVOD and live streaming. The solution is agnostic to all major dynamic ad insertion (DAI) vendors.
Enhanced viewer functionality
Viewers benefit from the latest catchup and playback features, such as personal recordings,“skip intro” to get to the content quicker, or the ability to scroll through a live event timeline (to watch a goal during a soccer match again, for example).
Virtual live channels
By creating personalized playlists, streaming providers can make more of their VOD libraries by repurposing content and serving up a string of relevant programs to each viewer. These can take the form of FAST channels; themed pop-up channels; personalized sports highlights; exclusive as-live events; and other custom virtual linear streams. All these custom streams are designed to provide the ultimate personal TV-like experience, reduce time searching for content, increase watch time, and drive customer retention.
NAB Show Product of the Year Award Winners were selected by a panel of industry experts in 15 categories and announced in a live awards ceremony at NAB Show on April 26. To be eligible for an award, nominated products had to come from companies exhibiting at the 2022 NAB Show and are delivered within the 2022 calendar year.
“The 2022 NAB Show Product of the Year Awards honor innovative breakthroughs that will change the way the media and entertainment industry creates, connects, and capitalizes content,” said NAB Executive Vice President of Global Connections and Events Chris Brown. “We congratulate Unified Streaming on this award in recognition of Unified Remix and its potential to help storytellers meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.”
“We’re all about leveraging and celebrating the power of the industry ecosystem, so being recognized by a panel of industry experts for Unified Remix is wonderful,” said Linzi McRae, Product Manager at Unified Streaming. “We are extremely proud of our team, our customers, and our partners. Their constant creativity and drive for excellence inspires the evolution of Unified Remix: from a simple stream customization tool, into a suite of increasingly dynamic and diverse capabilities for personalizing, managing, and monetizing content.”
