Univision’s Story


Univision is a Spanish-language television network headquartered in New York. It has the largest number of Spanish-language television viewers in the United States, and is one of the top five US television networks with the highest growth.


Business Requirements


With TV audience migrating online, Univision saw a tremendous opportunity to publish its broadcast content on its web properties and syndicate it to its growing list of distribution partners. This initiative called for a powerful media content platform; one that would allow faster video clip creation, publication and syndication. Univision’s business requirements were:


• Insertion Capture live broadcast from 18 different local stations

• Create clips remotely with full access from any station feed.


• Minimize time from content creation to publication.


• Deliver high-definition video to desktop and mobile devices.


• Automate content syndication.



Anvato’s Media Content Platform (MCP) enabled clips to be saved to Anvato Media Content Platform for time-shifted delivery, or published on the fly as a multi-bit rate adaptive stream to any screen. Syndication distributions can be scheduled or pushed manually to over 30 default premium video outlets, as well as custom destinations specified by your business.

Anvato Live Video Editor provides a professional video editing experience: intuitive, precise, and quick. It lets editors select a show, cut out unwanted or unlicensed content, insert logos and transitions, and adjust the audio. Editors can also easily set up ad slots for web-targeted video monetization.


Anvato’s Live Video Editor includes productivity features not found in any other system, such as Closed Caption Navigation and enhanced Video Auto Segmenter. Auto-Segmenter uses our patented machine vision technology to detect ads, scene changes or video chapters and intelligently split the video clip into logical sub-clips.

Global Electronic Program Guides automatically populate video metadata such as clip title, description, air-date and close captions in multiple languages.
