Use a playlist to mix clips from various origins into a single stream and deliver to all devices with no discontinuity. Add a promo, output conditioned manifests and media segments and ready your VOD content for ad insertion. Unified Remix takes an innovative approach by doing content stitching upstream from the origin server. Other use cases include stream personalization, pre-rolls, mid-rolls, post-rolls and nPVR. Plus, many other interesting cases are in store.

Think of Unified Remix as a just-in-time video-editing suite. Streams can be personalized in any arrangement: a stream for each viewer, streams to groups of viewers (for example, according to geolocation or subscriptions) or even a single stream for all viewers.

How Unified Remix works

As a playlist-resolving software engine, Unified Remix uses a playlist on the server side, removing all decision logic from the player. Unified Remix bases the playlist on a general ruleset triggered by a CMS, a recommendation system or other business rules. It then transforms the remixed MP4 playlist into input for Unified Origin and Unified Packager, both of which can deliver all playout formats. The result: a unified approach to delivering to all devices from a single playlist.

Get Started

Remix content with a playlist

Remix your content using a playlist. In SMIL format, the playlist can be created by a CMS or any other business logic. The SMIL playlist lists one or more sequence elements and produces a final clip as the concatenation of all the sequences. It contains the pointers to the source content, clips with or without timing information, timed metadata or instructions to insert a splice point.

Can work everywhere

Unified Remix runs in front of Unified Origin – that is, on the edge of the content itself. There is therefore no need to manipulate HLS manifests or add multiple periods to DASH manifests.


No necessary player SDK

Running the playlist server-side using Unified Remix eliminates the need for a player software development kit (SDK). Streams appear the same for all viewers in all formats

Compatible with DRM

Another advantage of using Unified Remix is its compatibility with all features of Unified Origin, including the DRM protecting your valuable stitched content.
