Company Quote:
“Wowza has enjoyed tremendous growth in Europe, and we continue to see strong demand from broadcast players in the region. We look forward to introducing our next-generation Wowza Media Server 3(R) platform to this market. At IBC2011 we’ll demonstrate how, by cutting through the technological complexity that constrains other solutions, Wowza Media Server 3 makes any-screen content delivery easy and cost-effective for broadcasters of all sizes.” — David Stubenvoll, chief executive officer and co-founder of Wowza Media Systems

Wowza Media Systems New Products on Display at IBC2011:

Wowza Media Server 3
Wowza(R) is proud to introduce the third generation of its multiple-award-winning streaming solution, Wowza Media Server(R) 3. Wowza Media Server 3 is a single extensible foundation for “any screen done right(TM)” media delivery of the best possible viewing experience where and when it’s wanted. With Wowza Media Server 3, formerly hard-to-implement features such as adaptive bitrate (ABR) streaming, time-shifted playback, and integrated rights management are made simple and cost-effective. Complementing the platform are three initial value-added components, Wowza Transcoder(TM) AddOn, Wowza Network DVR(TM) (nDVR) AddOn, and Wowza DRM(TM) AddOn. Wowza Media Server 3 is the ideal media platform for revenue-generating services for an ever-growing number of destinations, including Flash(R)- and Silverlight(R)-capable computers, tablets, phones, set-top boxes, media players, and game consoles; Apple(R) iPhone(R)/iPad(R) and other HLS-capable devices such as Apple TV(R) with AirPlay(R), Android(TM) devices, Roku(R) media players, and Internet-connected TVs including Samsung(R) Smart TV(TM) and Google TV(TM)-powered sets.

General availability of Wowza Media Server 3 and the new value-added components is expected in Q3 2011, at which time all current Wowza Media Server 2 licensees will be eligible for a free upgrade to the new platform.

Wowza Transcoder AddOn
Wowza Transcoder(TM) AddOn for Wowza Media Server(R) 3 uses commodity hardware to transform incoming live streams from encoders, IP cameras, IPTV headends, and other live sources into multiple stream sets “done right” for H.264-everywhere adaptive bitrate delivery using Flash(R) RTMP and HTTP Dynamic Streaming, Apple(R) HLS, and Silverlight(R) Smooth Streaming. Wowza Transcoder can also be used for non-adaptive streaming using any transport protocol supported by Wowza Media Server 3, including RTMP, RTSP/RTP, MPEG-TS, and HTTP. Integrating transcoding into the media server eliminates the provisioning complexity typical of adaptive bitrate streaming, reduces bandwidth access by up to 80 percent, and enables better utilization of network resources such as routers and switchers. The result is not only simplicity, but also increased system-wide reliability and lower overall cost.

Wowza Network DVR (nDVR) AddOn
Wowza Network DVR(TM) (nDVR) AddOn is an innovative live-stream cache that enables Wowza(R) licensees to increase revenues and viewer engagement by delivering live linear streams as time-shifted services to any screen. Supported features, including live-stream pause, rewind, and resume, enable content publishers and service providers to develop premium catch-up TV services to individualize the viewer experience. Wowza nDVR works by storing content for any-screen playout in a normalized format accessible to Wowza Media Server(R) 3. Compared to client-specific nDVR implementations, it significantly reduces cost by minimizing network storage requirements and simplifying the delivery workflow for all screens.

Wowza DRM AddOn
Wowza DRM(TM) AddOn offers third-party Digital Rights Management (DRM) Key Management System (KMS) integration such as support for Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS(TM)) for Internet TV and Microsoft(R) PlayReady(R) key management systems. Equipped with the Wowza DRM software AddOn, Wowza Media Server 3 provides secure key exchange and encrypts individual video segments on the fly for streaming of premium content to viewers on a wide range of devices including PC/tablets, set-top boxes, connected TVs, and mobile devices. Wowza plans to announce integration with additional DRM platforms in the future.
