A Typical Workflow for Live Video Streaming
Wowza Streaming Engine
Wowza Streaming Engine transforms your input stream and delivers it so that it can be viewed on any device anywhere.
Wowza Streaming Engine supports all playback device formats and common 3rd party players, so your live event may be viewed on any device.
Stream Live to Any Device, Anywhere
Wowza software makes your live event available to your audience on any device and any network in a straightforward and cost-effective way. The built-in Wowza transcoding feature transforms live streams to adaptive streams, dynamically adjusting resolution and bitrate to match each viewer’s bandwidth—thus providing the best possible streaming experience for everyone.
Use Any H.264 Encoder—or None at All
Wowza Streaming Engine works with a broad range of camera/encoder combinations, so you can choose what’s right for you. Simply point your RTMP, RTSP/RTP, MPEG-TS, or ICY stream to Wowza Streaming Engine and let us do the rest. Or you can stream from an IP camera directly to Wowza Streaming Engine—no encoder needed.
Customize Your Streaming Architecture
Wowza Streaming Engine integrates with other systems and third-party solutions. Leverage the software’s APIs and components to build solutions that support your evolving streaming needs.
Pause, Rewind, and Seek Through Live Streams
The built-in nDVR feature in Wowza Streaming Engine lets you deliver a time-shifted viewing experience that enables viewers to pause, rewind, or resume live streams on whichever device they choose.
