EVERGREEN, Colo. — Oct. 21, 2010 — Wowza Media Systems(R), the media server company, today announced that NGENIX, one of the top content delivery networks in Eastern Europe, has upgraded to Wowza Media Server(R) 2 software. NGENIX, a Wowza(R) customer for more than a year, has now also achieved Wowza Streaming Partner status. The Wowza Streaming Partner status is awarded to select service providers who have achieved the required level of deployment, demonstrated expertise in operating Wowza server-based services, and proven a high level of customer satisfaction.

With award-winning Wowza Media Server 2, NGENIX now has the ability to stream high volumes of content reliably beyond Flash(R) to an even greater number of screens, including Apple(R) iPhone(R)/iPad(TM) and Android(TM) devices.

In addition, Wowza Media Server 2 allows us to cost-effectively distribute video to the widest possible range of user devices.”

Among NGENIX customers reaping the benefits of the Wowza-powered multi-protocol streaming is Sportbox.ru, the most popular sports website in the region with more than three million visitors a month. Part of Russian state television and radio, Sportbox.ru streams live events, replays, photos, and news. Sportbox.ru used NGENIX CDN Web acceleration and Wowza-based video streaming services to broadcast both the Olympic Winter Games and the 2010 World Cup.

NGENIX content delivery services target the massive Internet audience in Russia and Ukraine on behalf of media publishers, Web portals, software distributors, and online shops.
