Unified CaptureΒΆ

Unified Capture typical use cases are:

  • instant Live to VOD (Catch-up TV)
  • providing nPVR on premise or in the cloud
  • a verification tool

Unified Capture supports capturing from the following formats: HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS), HTTP Live Streamnig (HLS), HTTP Smooth Streaming (HSS) and MPEG-DASH.

An option is provided to use frame-accurate time ranges, offering seamless transition between cuts.

Schematically this looks like the following:

       GET
origin <-- capture
              |
           storage (hds|hls|hss|dash)

Unified Capture can be integrated in existing workflows including Content Management Systems (CMS).

Important

Unified Capture is designed to be used in tandem with Unified Origin:

  • Only Unified Origin should be used as a source for Unified Capture.
  • Only Unified Origin should be used for playing out captured content.
  • When capturing content, software version of Capture and Origin must be identical.
