Telestream and Unified Streaming Join Forces

Telestream will offer Unified Streaming’s Origin as an option to Telestream’s Lightspeed Live Stream system to provide an 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 DRM support.

“Unified Origin is an industry standard well known to the major CDNs and we’ve worked closely with the Unified team to create a tight integration with our Lightspeed Live Stream encoder,” said Paul Turner, VP of Product Management at Telestream. “Customers can be assured that the performance, scalability, and flexibility of our combined offering will be the absolute best in the business.”

The number of players, DRM systems, codecs, and protocols in use creates an enormous matrix of possibilities that an origin server must respond to, at scale, in real time.

“Both Telestream and Unified Streaming have a reputation for building bullet-proof systems that can be trusted and relied upon by the largest broadcasters and CDNs in the world 24/7/365. This partnership builds on those reputations while offering our customers exciting new capabilities to enhance their revenues,” said Turner.

Telestream’s Lightspeed Live Stream encoder sends a 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.

“We’re happy to be partnering with Telestream to deliver such a high-quality solution. It allows us to offer a best of breed solution with a single point of contact,” said Simon Westbroek, VP Global Sales at Unified Streaming.
