Wowza to Demonstrate Latest Unified Media Streaming Innovations at CableLabs® Winter Conference

Evergreen, CO, February 3, 2010 - Wowza Media Systems®, the media server company, will be demonstrating its unified media server, Wowza Media Server 2, at the CableLabs Winter Conference 2010 February 7-9th in Denver, Colorado.

Wowza has been chosen to be among a group of companies that will present and demonstrate at the CableLabs Innovation Showcase during the conference. The showcase will feature 12 companies, a combination of established and venture capital-stage companies, who will present and demonstrate cutting edge broadband technologies for the audience of predominantly cable technology executives.

Wowza’s demonstration will highlight how cable providers can cost-effectively deploy client agnostic WebTV and MobileTV infrastructures that encompass multiple player and device platforms, including Adobe Flash, Microsoft® Silverlight® smooth streaming, iPhone®, BlackBerry®, Android™, and IPTV set-top boxes.

Wowza Media Server 2 is the first platform that allows streaming from one H.264 encode simultaneously to multiple players and devices. As a result, cable providers and other organizations serious about delivering video can slash capital and operational costs. By enabling simultaneous streaming to multiple clients from a single standard H.264 live encoder or file, Wowza Media Server 2 eliminates the need for separate client-specific encoders and media servers.

Wowza Media Server 2 is the only software on the market to natively implement concurrent streaming support for Adobe® RTMP protocol suite, Apple® HTTP Streaming, Microsoft Smooth Streaming, RTSP/RTP delivery for Apple QuickTime™, mobile and other clients as well as MPEG-TS for IPTV set-top delivery. Other benefits include:

  • Up to 10Gbps per-server performance - Wowza Media Server 2 is the first media software to reach this performance benchmark for streaming live and on-demand video using off-the-shelf server hardware.
  • Cross-platform deployment - Wowza Media Server 2 can be deployed in minutes on any OS, including Windows, Linux, Mac OS, Solaris and Unix freeing users from client-specific server OS dependence.
