Wowza Media Systems Aims To Advance Live, On-Demand Streaming
The Sports Video Group is pleased to welcome Wowza Media Systems as a premier sponsor. Headquartered in Golden, CO, the company enables organizations to harness the power of streaming to any device with powerful streaming software and cloud services.
“Wowza is very excited to join the SVG community,” says Carlos Perez, VP, business development and sales. “Wowza has a strong history of working with the sports industry to support its diverse and growing streaming needs. SVG brings many great resources, of course, but, most important, we look forward to becoming a part of the community and engaging with SVG members to move the video and streaming capabilities of the industry forward.”
Customers count on the innovative and reliable Wowza Streaming Cloud and Wowza Streaming Engine to build, deploy, and manage customized streaming solutions that deliver high-quality and engaging live and on-demand experiences. Both products are tools to get any sports-streaming infrastructure up and running. For organizations seeking a cloud service, Wowza Streaming Cloud is suitable. For those that need more control and on-premises deployment, Wowza Streaming Engine is appropriate.
“Our core offerings,” adds Perez, “are optimized for live streaming and provide a professional-grade solution to stream events of any size.”
