Wowza Showcases Lightning-Fast Video Delivery at IBC

Jaa

During the 2018 International Broadcasting Convention (IBC), to be held Sept. 14-19 in Amsterdam, Wowza™ Media Systems will demonstrate sub-three-second global streaming delivery through the Wowza Streaming Cloud™ service with Ultra Low Latency. This service already powers massively scalable streaming experiences, from live trivia events to streaming solutions at the world’s largest sporting events. In addition to showcasing the power of the Ultra Low Latency service, Wowza will unveil several updates to its Wowza Streaming Engine™ software, as well as advancements to the Wowza ClearCaster™ appliance.

Glass-to-Glass in 3 Seconds or Less

Wowza Streaming Cloud with Ultra Low Latency presents an API-based platform for creating tomorrow’s live video experiences. Deployed on top of Microsoft Azure, this revolutionary platform-as-a-service combines enterprise-level stability and uptime with interactive capabilities—providing sub-three-second streaming for massive audiences anywhere in the world.

“Streaming applications and services today demand lightning-fast, interactive video workflows to engage audiences and create revolutionary user experiences. Our solution helps customers deliver live events and engage audiences on any device,” said Dave Stubenvoll, CEO and co-founder at Wowza Media Systems. “Achieving true glass-to-glass ultra low latency streaming requires innovation, and this is where Wowza continually excels. We’re proud to offer the ideal platform for markets such as gaming, live auctions and sports, or for anyone who needs to deliver low-latency video to millions of viewers around the world.”

The new service supports ultra low latency streaming across both mobile and web applications through the Wowza GoCoder™ app and SDK, as well as the HTML5-based Wowza Player.

SRT 1.3 Enables Port Sharing and VLC Playback

Wowza Streaming Engine with SRT has upgraded its functionality to support SRT version 1.3, expected to release in early October. This update allows for port sharing, which augments firewall traversal techniques by supporting multiple connections on the same UDP port—simplifying the challenges of complex streaming workflows. Additionally, SRT playback with VLC media player is included in this release.

As a co-founding member of the SRT Alliance, Wowza and Haivision will co-sponsor an SRT Panel Discussion on Sept. 15, 16:00 to 17:00 (CET) at the RAI in Amsterdam. This panel session will explore real-world implementations, and will discuss how the SRT open-source protocol and technology stack delivers reliable, secure low-latency video over unpredictable networks such as the public internet.

Wowza ClearCaster Provides Even Higher Production Value

Wowza ClearCaster, the professional encoding appliance for Facebook Live, is now whitelisted to support premium, high-quality transcoding (e.g., access to 1080p, 60 fps). Pairing this new transcoding tier with integral hardware and software updates from the ClearCaster gives broadcasters crystal-clear high-motion video quality on Facebook Live. In addition to updating its core functionality, ClearCaster now supports titling and graphics through any browser-based source for broadcasts requiring higher production value.

For broadcasters who require greater reliability, ClearCaster’s end-to-end redundancy capabilities can run multiple devices, and “failover” or toggle between two paired machines. Also, to help broadcasters deliver to audiences beyond Facebook Live, ClearCaster can simulcast live video streams through the Wowza Streaming Cloud service.

All of this new functionality can be remotely managed through Wowza ClearCaster Manager: a user interface where users can start and stop streams, adjust settings and more.

Browser-Based Broadcasts and Low-Latency Streaming with WebRTC

Wowza Streaming Engine will be enhancing support for WebRTC: the open framework that enables Real-Time Communications through web browsers. Wowza Streaming Engine™ software with WebRTC enables browsers and apps to broadcast to the media server without additional encoders or plug-ins. Wowza Streaming Engine will allow customers to design low-latency WebRTC workflows or to ingest and convert WebRTC for larger scale broadcasts.

GSMA Welcomes Germany’s 5G Spectrum Award, but Cautions against Unnecessary Conditions15.11.2018 11:00Tiedote

The GSMA today welcomed the German government’s decision to release the entire 3.4 to 3.8 GHz band (C-Band), essential for the future development of 5G services globally. Making available all of the spectrum in this critical band for 5G, in a timely manner, shows Germany’s commitment to European and global 5G leadership. However, the GSMA warns that some of the currently proposed conditions on the allocation of these vital frequencies may slow Germany’s 5G future. Ultra-fast 5G networks will form the foundation of the world’s digital economy, supporting a wide variety of industry sectors. Imposing unnecessary conditions that limit mobile operators’ ability and potential to deliver 5G creates a risk for all, industries and citizens alike. “The C-Band is the most vital frequency band for 5G. Germany is demonstrating 5G leadership in the timely release of this vital spectrum, but risks undercutting its 5G future with unnecessary obligations,” said Mats Granryd, Director General, GSMA. “Sp

Entersekt Sets Sights on the Nordics15.11.2018 11:00Tiedote

Entersekt, an innovator in mobile-first fintech solutions, today announced its entry into the competitive Nordic market. The identity and payments enablement provider serves banks and other enterprises operating in 45 countries. Entersekt’s interest in Scandinavia derives from its openness to digital banking and payments innovation. Digitization may be transforming business in every corner of the world, but few regions have experienced the wholesale change in consumer payments behaviour that the Nordics have. While governments, central banks, and the banking industry as a whole have pushed a cashless agenda for several years now, many point to Nordic consumers’ enthusiastic adoption of cashless transacting as the true driver behind the boom in digital payments. Consumers in the region have never been hidebound to payments innovation, as smart card penetration rates demonstrated years ago. Payments-ready smartphones are, of course, everywhere and the retail NFC infrastructure is superb.
