Frequently Asked Questions
What are stream processing hours and how are they calculated?
Stream processing hours are the total amount of transcoding time consumed on Wowza Streaming Cloud, in one-minute increments. Unlike other services, Wowza Streaming Cloud does not charge additional fees for HD content or your number of output renditions. Just track your total live-streaming time, and that’s it.
What is bandwidth usage and how is it calculated?
Bandwidth usage is the amount of content delivered from Wowza Streaming Cloud. This includes both CDN delivery and delivery to Stream Targets. Your total bandwidth usage will be determined by your average bitrate and audience size. Generally, we find that 2 viewing hours consumes ~1 GB of bandwidth. Estimate your bandwidth usage with the live event usage calculator.
What if I exceed my included usage?
All plans have affordable pay-as-you-go overage options so you can keep streaming with ease. Usage beyond your plan plan limit will be billed according to your pricing plan.
Do I have to sign a long-term contract?
No. All Wowza Streaming Cloud plans are month-to-month, and you can cancel anytime.
Can I upgrade or downgrade plans?
Yes. All plans are month-to-month and can be changed at any time.
