Wowza Media Systems(R) Announces Partnership With Exterity(R)

EVERGREEN, Colo. — Sept. 8, 2010 — Wowza Media Systems(R), the media server software company, today announced a partnership agreement with IPTV specialist Exterity(R) Limited to extend the reach of Exterity’s LAN-based live IP video networks to Flash(R), iPhone(R), Silverlight(R), and a variety of other players and devices.
The two companies confirmed interoperability between Wowza Media Server(R) 2 and Exterity’s range of AvediaStream H.264 encoders to create these extended solutions. Exterity products, including AvediaStream encoders, enable distribution of broadcast-quality TV and video to an almost unlimited number of users over building or campus IP networks (LANs), with centralized management, configuration, and control.

“With its unique ability to make video content available to any media platform and any screen, Wowza Media Server adds invaluable functionality when used with our AvediaStream H.264 encoders,” said Colin Farquhar, CEO of Exterity. “We know our customers will appreciate the enhanced capabilities just as we appreciate having an outstanding partner in Wowza.”

Recognized as the Streaming Media Readers’ Choice for Best Innovation of 2009, Wowza Media Server is a high-performance video engine that simultaneously delivers content from a single set of live or on-demand H.264 assets to multiple online clients and devices, including Flash, Silverlight, iPhone/iPad(TM), Android(TM), and other mobile platforms, as well as IPTV set-top boxes.

“Exterity is well known as a key technology provider to some of the world’s best-known corporations,” said Alex Dobrushin, chief marketing officer of Wowza Media Systems. “Jointly, we are offering solutions that not only offer excellent video encoding quality, but also can take that content beyond the walls of the enterprise to any platform and any player.”

Exterity will showcase Wowza(R) server software with its latest products at IBC2010 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Sept. 10-14 at Stand IP721 in the Connected World’s IPTV Zone (Hall 9). Wowza Media Systems will demonstrate Wowza Media Server 2, and preview five exciting new capabilities, at Stand IP321.
