Wowza was a big winner in Streaming Media’s 2007 Readers’ Choice Awards. Despite being a newcomer, it joined Adobe and Microsoft at the top of the Server Hardware/Software category, placing ahead of well-established players Apple and Real.

With this year’s nomination, Wowza continues its track record of excellence by not only reaffirming its leadership in the Server Hardware/Software space for two years in a row, but also achieving prominence in a second, new category, Best Streaming Radio Solution. The latter, which acknowledges the rapid growth of streaming among both traditional and Web radio broadcasters, comes in recognition of Wowza’s exclusive SHOUTcast-to-Flash® streaming capability that charts a unique path to the vast Flash audiences for online radio.

“We are extremely flattered by this continued recognition,? said David Stubenvoll, CEO and Co-Founder, Wowza Media Systems. “Streaming Media’s readership is a sophisticated community whose acknowledgement of our contribution to the streaming media market means a great deal to us.?

Launched in February 2007, Wowza Media Server Pro has since become the streaming media server solution of choice for more than 9,000 global licensees, including such well-known customers as Macy’s, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Interoute, RAINet, and Astral Media. Among the reasons cited for its rapid and enthusiastic adoption are its unmatched combination of price, performance, functionality, and extensibility, which include its recently announced support for H.264, AAC and exclusive interoperability with live non-Flash media encoders.

The winners of Streaming Media Magazine’s 2008 Readers’ Choice Awards will be announced at Streaming Media West, September 23-25, in San Jose, CA, as well as in the October/November issue of Streaming Media Magazine and a special digital-only feature on streamingmedia.com. The deadline for voting is August 25.
