Stream VOD adaptively to save on bandwidth and storage space while delivering the best playback quality to Android, iOS, and other clients, in any bandwidth conditions.
Stream VOD Files to Any Device
Extend your audience reach by streaming prerecorded video to any player and device, over any protocol, from one set of source files.
Scale VOD Streaming
Scale up to multiserver installations with virtually unlimited capacity. Efficiently fetch VOD content from centralized storage to edge servers using our Wowza Media Cache package.
Secure Your Content
