Vimond, Unified Streaming forge dynamic remuxing partnership
Vimond Media Solutions has released details of a new partnership with Amsterdam-based Unified Streaming that is designed to bring the benefits of the Unified Streaming Platform (USP) to Vimond customers.
Unified Streaming’s cross-platform video-streaming technology dynamically remuxes different video streams to different platforms, lowering the number of different formats needed and making it possible for Vimond customers to stream high-quality video with no buffering and no waiting.
USP will allow Vimond customers to stream media content from one unified source to multiple clients and devices, wrapping the platform-specific solutions available from Adobe (HTTP Dynamic Streaming), Apple (HTTP Live Streaming), Microsoft (Smooth Streaming) and MPEG-DASH into one. The module does not do any transcoding but instead transmuxes to the format used by the adaptive streaming format (MPEG-TS, fragmented-MP4, DASH). It also generates the different manifest/playlists formats used (.m3u8, .ismc, .f4m).
Helge Høibraaten, CEO of Vimond Media Solutions, comments: “Unified Streaming Platform technology is innovative and helps us target multiple devices from a single source — even with DRM. This partnership enables our customers to have an even broader device reach without having to transcode or encode to all the different format variations out there, which in turn will help reduce storage costs.”
Dirk Griffioen, CodeShop CEO and co-founder, adds: “We decided to partner with Vimond because it was clear from the beginning that Vimond shares our passion for enabling customers to deliver great end-user experiences through the Vimond Media Platform. The features of CodeShop’s Unified Streaming Platform combined with Vimond’s distribution engine give customers a powerful, high-performance, ready-for-the future video-streaming solution.”
