Thanks for your response i have few more questions. We have 40 incoming live streams and my questions are related to best option for transcoding and serving to multiple platforms.
Q. As you know we are running wowza 3.5.1 and as per my knowledge if we want to transcode incoming live stream using wowza one option is wowza adon. with folloing pricing
Pricing is cumulative as you add instances. For example, if you run 11 instances, you pay:
$20/month x 4 (first 4 instances) = $80
$18/month x 6 (next 6 instances) = $128
$16/month x 1 (next 10 instances) = $16
Reference:Transcoder AddOns Pricing
Above pricing is correct and for 40 streams how much it would cost me?
Q. Now wowza web shows pricing for latest products streaming engine and cloud. I am not sure is it just product rename or some newer version is called streaming engine? if its new version i guess i have free upgrade option available?
Q. If due to changes in wowza I must use streaming engine then what will be the pricing for transcoding 40 streams? Web saying unlimited transcoding with streaming engine.
Q. On average server (xeon quad core +24gb ram) how many stream can be transcoded and served to user around globe before server hardware resources max out?
Q. What is the pricing for cloud option if i take transcoding to wowza cloud and link it with my wowza server installation to serve stream to users?
I hope my questions make sense. Looking forward for your response.
