Unified Origin Created with Sketch.

Live Media Ingest (CMAF)

Using FFMPEG to demonstrate live encoder failover

This demo showcases multiple encoder sending synchronized Video & Audio fragments (each 1 sample in duration) to the same Unified Origin. To achieve this, each encoder using it's internal systemclock (UTC) as reference stamps the fragment with a decode time/offset based upon the same algorithm.

The benefits of this solution:

  • A specification developed through the DASH-Industry Forum
  • An industry best practice approach for ingesting live media to processing entities
  • A scalable and fault-tolerant method of delivery
  • A way of ingesting CMAF media tracks
  • A method of delivery media for both Live and VOD streaming workflows
