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.
