Wowza Media Server includes a system for re-streaming called MediaCaster. The MediaCaster system is used for re-streaming IP Camera streams (RTSP/RTP streams), SHOUTcast/Icecast streams and native RTP encoders. The MediaCaster system pulls a stream from a stream source and makes it available for streaming to the different player technologies supported by Wowza Server. This system works on demand - when the first request comes in for a given stream a connection is made to the source stream and the stream is made available to the player.
