Get started

How Unified Origin works

As a software plugin for industry standard webservers, such as Apache and Nginx, Unified Origin allows a webserver to ingest one format (MP4, fragmented MP4 or HLS for VOD) and package it on-the-fly to all formats, including HbbTV, Progressive and CMAF. It supports all the major DRM systems (Adobe Access, FairPlay, Marlin, PlayReady and Widevine). AVC, HEVC, HDR or 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 Digital Plus/Atmos 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.

The additional feature of supporting timed metadata allows for smarter and more flexible streams, enabling even more advanced workflows, such as Dynamic Ad Insertion (DAI).
