Wowza Media Systems at IBC 2012

August 13, 2012

At IBC 2012, Wowza unveils the newest enhancements to its multi-award-winning media server software. The latest showcase demonstrates Wowza’s ongoing commitment to industrial-strength streaming media delivery by further streamlining the any-screen media workflow and reducing the expenses that result from a multitude of client-specific platforms, adaptive bitrate technologies, and fragmented media players. Wowza Media Server software’s added functionality offers greater scalability, deeper viewer engagement, and more content protection options, with specific enhancements including closed captioning, multicast for Microsoft Silverlight, and dynamic overlays. Wowza enables its customers to future-proof their streaming media infrastructures, enhance the end-user viewing experience, increase viewer engagement, and compete in an ever crowded and evolving market.

In addition, Wowza offers a rich suite of free and premium AddOns, and a variety of licensing options: daily, monthly, or perpetual. There are even cloud options on Amazon Web Services and, coming soon, Windows Azure to get content producers up and running even more quickly. Wowza customers will have multiple tools to streamline their any-screen media workflows as part of prebuilt, preconfigured, and ready-to-consume services that dynamically scale to meet their needs.

“We’re happy to announce exciting innovations to Wowza Media Server software that address customer needs, making it easier and more affordable for our clients to provide a rich user experience, whether they are streaming catch-up TV services or live audio. At IBC2012, we will demonstrate our continued leadership in the media server market with new ways to secure content, VOD transcoding, multicast for Microsoft Silverlight, dynamic overlays, HTTP origin for caching networks, and more in Wowza Media Server. These improvements provide deeper viewer engagement, greater opportunity for monetization, streamlined workflows, and increased scalability — all aimed at future-proofing our customers’ IP video delivery strategies.” — commented Dave Stubenvoll, Wowza Media Systems CEO and cofounder.

Wowza will be at Stand 14.162.
