Wowza Streaming Engine—a New Driving Force in the Future of Video Delivery

February 10, 2014 by Dave Stubenvoll

Over the past seven years, Wowza Media Server has set the industry standard for live and VOD streaming technology. And, while it has technically been just that—server software—it has evolved into much more, quite literally becoming the engine that powers high-quality content delivery to any audience on any device for customers in more than 150 countries around the world.

Our software has not only been the engine behind the video strategy of our customers but it’s also become a powerful force in driving the streaming industry as a whole. Our technology has been a powerhouse in the video movement, pushing the industry forward with new features, functionality, control and compatibility. Entire businesses have been built around our platform—a testament to the reliability and forward-thinking design of our software.

Having set the industry standard, we’re certainly not content to rest on our laurels. Instead, we’re raising the bar. Today we’re launching the next generation of Wowza technology: Wowza Streaming Engine, the most comprehensive solution of its kind, designed to power the future of live and VOD delivery for our customers.

Built upon the same reliable, scalable and flexible Wowza Media Server our customers have come to rely on, Wowza Streaming Media Engine is more than just a version update. It’s the next generation of streaming media software, providing the most powerful, customizable and scalable solution to serve as a primary hub for any video delivery ecosystem. Offering the broadest cross-platform support for devices, encoders, CDNs and formats—including the new MPEG-DASH standard—Wowza Streaming Engine is designed to meet the needs of any business or broadcaster today, and well into the future.

Our new Streaming Engine Manager streamlines deployment, management, monitoring and measurement of video delivery. And,  with a new user-friendly interface, built-in multi-player testing and web-based access to manage the entire streaming workflow from anywhere with a computer, tablet or smartphone, Wowza Streaming Engine puts the most powerful streaming software on the planet quite literally right in the palm of your hand.

While other providers are speculating about the future of streaming—with some even backing away from support and stalling product development—Wowza continues to raise the bar.

Welcome to the new era in streaming technology. Welcome to Wowza Streaming Engine.
