Telestream, a provider of digital media tools and workflow solutions, announced it has entered into a strategic partnership with Unified Streaming, a pioneer of smart video streaming technologies. This agreement allows Telestream to offer Unified Streaming’s Origin as an option to its Lightspeed Live Stream system to provide an industry-leading, all-in-one streaming solution with extended format and DRM (Digital Rights Management) support.
The combined solution provides just-in-time packaging of Adobe HTTP Dynamic Streams (HDS), Apple HTTP Live Streams (HLS), Microsoft Smooth Streams (MSS) and MPEG-DASH formats, coupled with the most comprehensive DRM support available. With sophisticated server-side ad insertion capabilities, broadcasters and content owners no longer have to worry about ad-blockers cutting into online revenue.
As part of the integration, Telestream’s Lightspeed Live Stream encoder sends an enhanced, high-quality, multi-bitrate common base format to Unified Origin. This enables the Origin to create any type of playout package required including encryption or DRM in real time, on demand.
