Wowza’s Industry Impact is Reaffirmed With Two More Streaming Media European Readers’ Choice Awards

Wowza Media Server 3 Wins Best Server Software and Best Streaming Innovation of 2011

EVERGREEN, Colo. — Oct. 20, 2011 — Wowza(R) Media Systems, the “Any Screen Done Right(TM)” media server software company, today announced that its Wowza Media Server(R) 3 has won two top European Readers’ Choice Awards from Streaming Media magazine. For the fourth year in a row, the company’s unified media server software was voted the best server software, and it was awarded the best streaming innovation for the third year running. As in prior years, Wowza’s media server software bested products from name-brand companies in the industry.

“We rely heavily on feedback from users to help us develop and improve our products, and what better feedback could we ask for than to receive these awards several years in a row,” said Dave Stubenvoll, Wowza CEO and co-founder. “The users and industry experts who read Streaming Media magazine are our core customers. These high accolades confirm that we’re delivering what they want and need.”

The Best Server Hardware/Software award means that European Streaming Media readers found the Wowza Media Server software to be the top solution for delivering audio and video over the Web. The Best Streaming Innovation of 2011 win acknowledges Wowza Media Server 3 as the technology that has most profoundly changed the streaming media landscape in the past year.

“If the list of finalists in the 2011 Streaming Media European Readers’ Choice Awards is any indication, 2011 has been a banner year for both established names and up-and-comers,” said Eric Schumacher-Rasmussen, editor of Streaming Media magazine. “More than 4,000 readers submitted their votes in the awards, offering up their choices among the 281 nominees in 13 categories. The total number of votes was a whopping 14,377, meaning that, on average, each reader cast their vote in three or four categories.”

The 2011 Streaming Media European Readers’ Choice awards were announced Oct. 18 at the 2011 Streaming Media Europe show in London.
