Evergreen, Colo.— September 10, 2014 — Wowza® Media Systems, LLC, provider of Simply Powerful Streaming™ software, today announced that JVC, developer and manufacturer of professional video camcorders, joined its Works With Wowza™ partner program, expanding the ecosystem to include video capture sources. Together, JVC and Wowza will give content creators the ability to instantly stream video from live events including breaking news, corporate events, concerts and sports. With streaming capability built into JVC professional camcorders, joint customers can now stream over both LTE and Wi-Fi networks, providing powerful live video experiences while on the go.

“Wowza is an industry leader in streaming technology and we are pleased to announce integration between JVC cameras with streaming capabilities and Wowza Streaming Engine server software,” said Edgar Shane, GM Engineering at JVC Professional Products Company. “Through this partnership content, creators can bring live video to end users anywhere, on any device. This opens up new opportunities for content development, as broadcasters are able to deliver real-time video directly to their viewers.”
