How it works

Wowza Video accepts video from nearly any encoder or IP camera, transcodes that video in the cloud, and delivers a high-quality stream in multiple bitrates that can be watched in a customizable player on virtually any device. You don't have to purchase or maintain hardware, or install or run software locally. You pay only for the resources you use, and broadcast to audiences large or small, any time.

Advanced settings let you create custom transcoding workflows, receive live streams to selected Wowza Video sources, and send streams to multiple targets, offering the control and scalability required for large-scale, professional deployments. Access raw streaming data via our builder-focused API and benefit from the freedom to incorporate external services.
