Rohde & Schwarz monitoring and multiviewer solution successfully tested for compatibility with Unified Streamingʹs Unified Origin

Rohde & Schwarz tested Unified Origin from Unified Streaming for compatibility with its Prismon monitoring and multiviewer solution. Prismon successfully received and monitored in detail all common OTT protocols, including HLS and MPEG-DASH.

Unified Origin is an all-in-one solution for media content streaming. It creates HDS, HLS, MPEG-DASH and MSS formats dynamically from a single source. OTT providers use this solution to process their content for delivery to mobile devices.

Unified Origin offers advanced features for adding multiple audio codecs such as Dolby Digital Plus (E-AC-3), DTS Express and Fraunhofer HE-AAC v2 (multichannel).

Straightforward monitoring

Prismon automatically monitors transmitted broadcast and streaming media content in parallel. Service providers can use the combination of Prismon and Unified Origin to meet their contractual requirements with respect to service quality and availability. The two firms therefore tested Unified Origin and the monitoring and multiviewer solution for compatibility, with successful results.

A large number of channels – including those in UHD quality – can be monitored in parallel with Prismon and visualized in a straightforward manner on a multiviewer video wall. Prismon allows fast and easy operation and administration under widely varied operating conditions.
