Wowza Media Server(R) 2 — The Award-Winning Unified Media Server
Wowza Media Server(R) 2 is a high-performance video engine that unifies delivery of live and on-demand H.264 video or AAC/MP3 audio streams to multiple clients and devices, eliminating the need for specialized, client-specific servers and encoders. It extends the reach of content to any platform and any screen, encompassing Flash(R), Silverlight(R), QuickTime(R), and IPTV set-top boxes, as well as the world’s leading video-friendly mobile devices like Android(TM) and Blackberry(R) phones, and the Apple(R) iPhone(R) and iPad(TM).

Wowza Media Server 2 makes it easy and affordable to deliver a high volume of audio and video content over IP networks, either public or private, to desktop/laptop computers (Web TV), mobile phones/tablets (mobile TV), or IP set-top boxes (IPTV). Improved economies of scale and reduced encoding, storage, and management expenses mean radio and television broadcasters, content delivery network (CDN) service providers, and other media enterprises save money, improve efficiency, and streamline systems. As a single-server platform, Wowza Media Server 2 also simplifies personnel training and operation, further reducing enterprise expense.

Wowza Media Systems(R) at Streaming Media West
A three-time winner of Streaming Media Readers Choice awards and a finalist in 2010, Wowza will take advantage of Streaming Media West to showcase three upcoming capabilities for the Wowza Media Server(R) 2. Each of these innovative enhancements further unify users’ streaming infrastructure while expanding their reach to more media platforms and more screens.

Support for New Adobe(R) Flash(R) HTTP Dynamic Streaming
Wowza Media Server(R) 2 adds an expanded suite of HTTP video and audio streaming capabilities, including support for Adobe(R) Flash(R) HTTP Dynamic Streaming to Flash Player 10.1-equipped desktop, mobile, and set-top devices. This capability complements the media server’s proven implementation with other HTTP streaming formats.

On-the-Fly DRM Encryption
On-the-Fly DRM Encryption enables Wowza Media Server(R) 2 to dynamically apply PlayReady(R) and Apple(R) AES-128 protection to any live or on-demand H.264 stream, simultaneously delivering premium content to both the Silverlight(R) 4 smooth streaming player, the Apple iPhone(R)/iPad(TM), and other HLS-compatible devices. The Wowza PlayReady implementation will support a direct interface with customer-owned PlayReady license servers or third-party PlayReady license providers such as EZDRM.

Live WebM Streaming
Finally, Wowza(R) will demonstrate Wowza Media Server(R) 2′s ability to perform live WebM streaming using VP8-encoded video with HTML5 video tag playback in Firefox(R) 4.0 Beta, Opera 10.6+, and other compatible browsers. Wowza Media Server 2 already supports HTML5 streaming to Apple(R) iOS and other HLS-compatible devices such as the Roku player. As HTML5 standards and practices continue to evolve, Wowza will continue to address unified video delivery to different browsers and compatible devices.
