Any Media to Any Device Anywhere — Simplified
Video streaming is complicated, with multiple protocols, formats, playback devices, and technical challenges. Wowza Streaming Engine™ software simplifies streaming. Platform-agnostic, multi-format, and multi-screen, it takes in any video format, transcodes it once, and reliably delivers it in multiple formats and with the highest possible quality to any connected device, anywhere.

Live H.264 Everywhere
Save time and money by using a single source file or HD stream to simultaneously deliver live video and audio streams to any player, any device, over any protocol, without creating individual assets for each variation.

Live Streaming from IP Cameras
Broadcast from H.264 IP cameras directly to connected devices, no encoders needed, or record a live stream to a file available for instant DVR or later on-demand playback.

Live Streaming from any H.264 Encoder
Use the best encoding solution for your needs, from free software RTMP encoders to the broadcast-grade MPEG-TS hardware.

On-the-Fly Transcoding
Provide the best possible viewer experience by transforming live streams on-the-fly from H.264 and non-H.264 sources into perfectly aligned adaptive bitrate (ABR) streams.

Live Streaming with GoCoder
Use Wowza® GoCoder™ to broadcast HD-quality live events using H.264 adaptive bitrate streaming. GoCoder lets you stream live audio and video directly from an iOS or Android device to any screen over WiFi, 4G, or 3G.

Support for the Latest Standards
Deliver streams using the latest formats as they come on the market, including the MPEG-DASH content delivery standard.

Browser-Based Management and Monitoring
Set up, manage, monitor, and measure video and audio streams from a computer, tablet, or phone using the browser-based Wowza Streaming Engine Manager.

Flexibility and Control
Every organization has different needs and requirements, which makes one-size-fits-all streaming solutions too limiting. Wowza Streaming Engine™ is dedicated, customizable and extensible software that integrates with other systems and third-party solutions. Leverage the software’s powerful components and APIs to build solutions that support your evolving streaming needs.

Multiple Deployment Options
Choose from a variety of deployment options to find one that best fits your organization’s needs. Retain control of video and audio content whether it's hosted on your dedicated on-premises servers, cloud-managed instances, or third-party, world-class data centers.

Live, Linear, and On-Demand Applications
Create live, linear, or on-demand streaming applications such as live events, news, surveillance, training, and on-demand videos.

Tools for Enhanced Functionality
Extend and customize your streaming workflows using AddOns such as Wowza Transcoder, Wowza nDVR, and Wowza DRM.

End-to-End Support
Leverage a wealth of APIs, a wide ecosystem of partners, and the active, friendly Wowza forums and knowledgeable independent contractors to build rock-solid streaming solutions.

Live Stream Recording and Archiving
Record a live stream to a file available for later on-demand playback. Record an entire live webcast into a single file, segment it into multiple files for chapter replay, or start and stop recording at predetermined points for partial archiving.

Engaging Viewer Experiences
Wowza Streaming Engine™ gives you tools to enhance your audience’s video and audio streaming delivery experience, increase their engagement, and maximize your reach. Viewers can enjoy TV-like features with the best possible quality playback on any device.

Caption Conversion Capabilities
Deliver live and on-demand videos whose captioning formats address various hospitality, video signage, and education scenarios, as well as comply with FCC regulations.

Multiple Language Support
Reach global audiences with video streams that allow viewers to select the audio from multiple languages.

Time-Shifted Live Playback
Create a premium viewing experience by leveraging time-shifted playback capabilities, such as pause, play, instant replay, rewind, and fast-forward, using the optional Wowza nDVR AddOn.

Live Adaptive Bitrate Streaming
Provide the best possible quality for each viewer by adjusting video stream delivery in real-time according to viewers’ varying CPU and bandwidth using adaptive bitrate (ABR) streaming.

Surround-Sound Audio
Create the ultimate immersive experience with surround-sound audio.

High Performance and Scalability
Wowza Streaming Engine™ is powerful multi-threaded software that delivers live and on-demand streaming from standard hardware or the cloud. Better use of server resources when transcoding, support for accelerated video processing, and other significant improvements in Wowza Streaming Engine mean you can take full advantage of the power of streaming video and audio.

Dynamic Content Retrieval
Scale on-demand streaming by dynamically retrieving content from a web server or network file system.

Origin Serving
Scale out live and on-demand streaming across large regions and audiences by using Wowza Streaming Engine as an origin server that fulfills requests via Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) and other HTTP caching infrastructures.

Multicast and Unicast Streaming
Make the most effective use of enterprise networks by using unicast streaming across a multiple-server public or private network, or multicast streaming across large, co-located groups of viewers on private networks.

Push Publishing
Push live streams to Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) and other services using Real Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP), MPEG-2 Transport Stream (MPEG-TS), and Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP).

Dynamic Load Balancing
Maximize performance by dynamically balancing connection loads among multiple Wowza Streaming Engine instances.

Connection Management
Automatically disconnect idle clients to clear out inactive connections.

Multiple Levels of Content Security
Wowza Streaming Engine™ offers a wide variety of simultaneous security options to ensure that streams, networks, and audio and video assets are protected. Configure security options in the browser-based Wowza Streaming Engine Manager, for fast and easy implementation.

All-Around Protection
Have confidence that your streams, networks, and audio and video assets are all secure with AES-128, studio-approved DRM, link protection, StreamLock™ SSL certification for RTMPS and HTTPS streams, and authenticated connections.

Studio-Approved Digital Rights Management
Meet studio security requirements with integrated third-party DRM key management services: BuyDRM™ KeyOS™ for Microsoft PlayReady protection for HLS and Smooth Streaming; EZDRM for Microsoft PlayReady protection for Smooth Streaming; Verimatrix for VCAS and Microsoft PlayReady protection for HLS and Smooth Streaming.
