Wowza Media Systems and Encoding.com Partner to Simplify Adaptive Bitrate Video Streaming

Wowza + Encoding.com = Problem Solved

EVERGREEN, Colo., and SAN FRANCISCO — Aug. 23, 2011 — Wowza Media Systems(R), the “any screen done right(TM)” media server software company, and Encoding.com, the world’s largest video encoding service, today announced a partnership that provides Wowza customers with custom Encoding.com presets to simplify the preparation and transcoding of videos into the optimal formats for adaptive bitrate delivery by Wowza Media Server(R).

“Wowza has done an amazing job simplifying the very complex process of streaming video to a plethora of devices and platforms,” said Jeff Malkin, president of Encoding.com. “This partnership expands that notion by leveraging Encoding.com’s custom Wowza transcoding presets, so Wowza customers can remove yet another complicated component in their video workflow.”

The award-winning Wowza Media Server supports both live and VOD adaptive bitrate streaming. However, encoding file content for adaptive bitrate delivery to popular playback clients, such as Flash(R), Silverlight(R), and Apple(R) iPhone(R)/iPad(R), can be challenging for many enterprises. Utilizing Encoding.com’s cloud-based encoding solution and proprietary Encoding Intelligence(TM), Wowza customers can take advantage of a new set of Wowza encoding presets to easily produce common adaptive bitrate files from the plethora of source file formats for any-screen delivery by Wowza Media Server.

“Wowza is committed to offering its customers unified solutions for managing their live and on-demand video delivery,” said Dave Stubenvoll, CEO and co-founder of Wowza Media Systems. “By partnering with Encoding.com, a trusted brand in the video ecosystem, our customers no longer need to struggle with the complex encoding process. Encoding.com simply takes care of it.”
