What is DVR?

DVR (Digital Video Recorder) provides pause and rewind for live digital content. The Wowza nDVR AddOn brings DVR capabilities to live streaming. To do this, Wowza writes the live stream to disk in chunks that are similar to the segmented chunks Wowza creates for HTTP streaming. Clients play back from this recorded store, providing pause and rewind capability.
