guesswork out of streaming technology and letting you focus on your business. We support your video and audio workflow, regardless of whether you choose to encode your video to H.265 or VP9, or live-stream via WebM, MPEG-DASH, Apple HLS, or one of several other formats.

High-quality viewing experiences: Wowza Transcoder technology can automatically create streams of various bitrates and dynamically serve the right one to each viewer based on his or her bandwidth and device capabilities. This adaptive bitrate streaming to OTT devices improves the viewer experience.

Peace of mind: The OTT and streaming media industries are changing faster than ever. Although many companies—including Apple, Microsoft, Adobe, and RealNetworks—have stopped supporting their own streaming server technologies, Wowza maintains its focus on Wowza Streaming Engine server software and the Wowza Streaming Cloud™ service, giving customers the peace of mind that we will continue to proactively develop the technology while supporting legacy streaming protocols and proprietary streaming formats such as Apple HLS.

All of this is why such Wowza customers as Turner, Al Jazeera, LaSexta, TV2 Norway, NBC Universal, CBC, and CBS rely on rock-solid Wowza performance to deliver feature-rich viewer experiences to their growing audiences.
