The BBC and Unified Streaming have renewed the commitment to work together for another two years. Since 2013, Unified Streaming, a leading provider of cross-platform video-streaming technologies, has provided the BBC with Unified Origin. This software has enabled stable, scalable streaming (just in time packaging) for the BBC.

Unified Origin offers an all-in-one solution for streaming Adobe HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS), Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), Microsoft Smooth Streaming (MSS) and MPEG-DASH. It features content protection with inbuilt support for DRM, subtitles, multiple language and audio tracks.

“Renewing our contract with BBC is interesting for many reasons. We appreciate the advanced and innovative approach of BBC and powering BBC’s streaming services makes us feel very proud,” says Unified Streaming’s VP of Sales, Simon Westbroek.
