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 limit will be billed according to your pricing plan.
Do I have to sign a long-term contract?
No. You can choose from Wowza Streaming Cloud month-to-month plans, or if you plan to stream over a longer period, you can save with an annual plan.
Can I upgrade or downgrade plans?
With Wowza Streaming Cloud month-to-month plans, you can change at any time. Changes will take effect at the end of the current billing period. You may not change an annual plan mid-period; plan changes will only take effect at the end of the 12-month subscription period.
