Use a playlist to mix clips from various origin into a single stream and deliver to all devices without a discontinuity. Add a promo, output conditioned manifests and media segments, make your vod content ready 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 and post-rolls, nPVR and for the future many other interesting use cases.
Streams can be personalized on any level. From a personalized stream for every viewer, streams to groups of viewers (e.g. based on geolocation, subscription model), and even a single stream for all viewers. Just think of Remix as a just-in-time video editing suite
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.
