Apply one tool to prepare all your content for HLS, MPEG-DASH, HDS, HSS and CMAF. Unified Packager works with content protection schemes, such as encryption, DRM and multiple-key DRM, to create a seamless viewer experience. Once packaged, your content is ready for delivery to an origin server or a CDN.

How Unified Packager works

As a software program, Unified Packager takes MP4 files as input to produce segmented output in HDS, HLS, MPEG-DASH and MSS formats. DRM can be applied using the command-line options, whereas CPIX may be used to specify multiple keys.

Unified Packager smoothly handles advanced features for adding multiple audio codecs, such as DTS Express, Dolby Digital Plus/Atmos and HE-AAC v2. Adding subtitles is easy because Unified Packager supports SRT, DFXP, ISMT, STPP or WebVTT.

One tool for all formats

Applying a separate solution for each format has long proven inefficient because it requires having multiple workflows for the same content. Add your content protection to the mix and it can be challenging to get the content package delivered in the right format at the right time. Unified Packager addresses all these needs, using one tool for all formats.

Take control

External parties cannot always handle on-demand packaging on a large scale. New technology comes to market every day, but not all content delivery is device-agnostic. With Unified Packager, you take control of your own packaging process so you can respond directly to your viewers’ demands.

Easy to integrate, improving time to market

You can incorporate Unified Packager into any existing workflow and CMS. Flexible and easy to integrate, it was developed to meet the varying needs of a broad range of companies.

Deploy anywhere

Implement Unified Packager anywhere, whether you want your data on-premise or in the cloud. It works with Amazon EC2, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure. Pre-configured and ready-to-stream images of Unified Packager are available.
