How it works

Recordings are dynamically generated and defined in easily updatable playlists that reference segments archived from a live stream.

Unified Origin bookends this workflow with Origin Live serving as the source and Origin VOD delivering the recordings to viewers. Unified Capture is responsible for archiving the live stream to disk in segments of a pre-defined length. The service that generates the playlists is a point of integration.

Unified Remix reads the playlist and translates it to a remixed MP4, which references the media data in the archived segments and stitches it together on a new, seamless timeline. This remixed MP4 then serves as the input for Origin VOD to generate and deliver the recording in whichever format is requested.
