Developed by Unified Streaming, Unified Origin is a software plug-in that allows a webserver to ingest one format, and to package it on-the-fly to all formats, including HbbTV and Progressive.
Having worked with Alchimie since 2015, Unified Streaming’s Unified Origin webserver plug-in has enabled Alchimie to provide streaming services to its customers
Alchimie, a digital content distributor headquartered in Paris, has extended its partnership with Unified Streaming, a company that provides creation of video streaming technologies for multiple platforms and devices.
The companies have worked together since 2015. With the installation of Unified Origin, a webserver plug-in developed by Unified Streaming, Alchimie is able to offer “stable, scalable live” and on-demand streaming to all its partners who, in turn, can satisfy their customers as the final users, said Unified Streaming.

“This experience fully convinced us that Unified Origin is the software for Alchimie.”
