Create clips from any stream and, in the process, do frame-accurate cutting. Unified Capture works with Live and VOD streams generating clips in HLS, MPEG-DASH, HDS and HSS. It enables monetization of live streaming and new services, such as nPVR, catch-up TV and timeshift TV.

How Unified Capture works

Unified Capture is a command line tool that captures and downloads the adaptive bitrate presentation (ABR) to disk, from a URL with timestamps. It also provides the option to do frame-accurate cuts in stream, whereby Unified Capture decodes and encodes beginning and ending fragments to allow for sample-accurate timing.

Reduce time-to-view

How long it takes to go from live to VOD depends on the amount of time you spend making clips and removing specific content, such as ads. Content preparation processes are time-consuming and may require manual processing to make the live streams available for VOD. As time-to-view gets prolonged, you risk missing opportunities for monetization.

Seamless streaming

Unified Capture simplifies content replacement by doing in-stream cuts and creating a seamless transition between frames. This saves you time and optimizes your window of revenue.
