How it Works

Remix VOD2Live makes use of two Unified Streaming products. Unified Remix for preparing the scheduled VOD playlist, and Unified Origin for delivering this linear presentation.

The linear presentation can be configured to start at a specific time and can also be left looping until stopped. Viewers join the presentation at the live edge as with a regular live presentation. From a client perspective, there is no difference between a live presentation that was generated through a Live encoder and one that was scheduled using Remix VOD2Live.
