The Amsterdam-based company has provided the BBC with cross-platform streaming technologies since 2013.
Unified Origin offers an all-in-one solution for streaming Adobe HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS), Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), Microsoft Smooth Streaming (MSS) and MPEG-DASH. It features content protection with inbuilt support for DRM, subtitles, multiple language and audio tracks.
“Renewing our contract with BBC is interesting for many reasons. We appreciate the advanced and innovative approach of BBC and powering BBC’s streaming services makes us feel very proud” says Unified Streaming’s VP of Sales Simon Westbroek.
Unified fits into existing webservers, such as Apache, IIS and Nginx. It provides streaming from one encode simultaneously to multiple devices in combination with various DRM technologies.
