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.
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.
