Wowza Media Systems and Skytide Partner to Deliver Integrated Media Server and Analytics Solution for Content Delivery Networks

EVERGREEN, Colo. — Nov. 7, 2011 — Wowza(R) Media Systems, the “Any Screen Done Right(TM)” media server software company, today announced a partnership with Skytide, the leader in online video management analytics, to give CDN and IPTV providers tools for building enormously scalable and manageable networks. The solution combines market-leading Wowza Media Server(R) 3 software with Skytide’s Insight for CDNs analytics and reporting application.

The joint solution has already been proven through deployments with a number of network operators, including Telefonica, as well as CDN platforms from Jet-Stream, Hewlett-Packard, and Broadpeak.

“The collaboration between our companies enables operators to deliver content to any screen efficiently and have a full suite of business analytics that are essential for running a CDN,” said Alex Dobrushin, chief marketing officer for Wowza Media Systems. “Through partnerships with best-of-breed companies like Skytide, we can offer our customers the components needed to deliver cost-effective, easy-to-manage, massively scalable networks.”

“Skytide’s analytics and reporting applications are the perfect complement to Wowza Media Server software’s data collection and flexible streaming capabilities,” said Skytide CEO, Michael O’Donnell. “Together, they enable a CDN provider to track essential operational metrics like quality of service, capacity utilization, and content popularity, and then easily scale the network to accommodate changing requirements.”

Skytide Insight for CDNs leverages the detailed per-session logging collected by Wowza Media Server software, easily processing huge volumes of data and quickly turning it into detailed reports that guide decision-making for capacity planning, service quality, pricing and billing, and other critical business processes. It also analyzes and aggregates the highly fragmented data generated by adaptive bit rate streaming from multiple protocols supported by Wowza Media Server software, and quickly transforms it into hundreds of meaningful reports in just minutes.

Wowza Media Server 3 is industrial-strength, high-performance software that simultaneously streams live and on-demand media to any screen — Adobe(R) Flash(R), Microsoft(R) Silverlight(R), iPhone(R), iPad(R), Android(TM), other smartphones and tablets, smart TVs, and IPTV/OTT set-top boxes. It provides a single extensible platform for a variety of high-value features, including live transcoding for adaptive bit rate (ABR) streaming; any-screen, time-shifted playback; and premium content delivery with multiplatform digital rights management (DRM).

Wowza Media Server 3 was recently recognized by its users in the Streaming Media European Readers’ Choice Awards as the best server software and best streaming innovation of 2011. Skytide products have also earned similar recognition in the past.
