Our Wowza Streaming service uses the award-winning Wowza Streaming Engine to provide you with high-powered live broadcast and on-demand video streaming. Wowza effortlessly streams to flash player, silverlight, iPhone, iPad, Android and Blackberry devices. Our wowza control system gives you statistical bandwidth/viewer graphs and even GeoIP viewer maps you can embed in your website.
Today's online media consumers are just as likely to be visiting your website with a tablet or smartphone as with a traditional computer and web browser. Wowza Media Server provides native support for Apple iOS devices, Android and Blackberry, so you can accommodate your mobile viewers. The popular JW Player flash player has native iOS detection and support, and we provide sample players deployed to new service as well as knowledgebase articles with instructions for configuring JW player for both flash and iOS compatibility.
We record current streaming connection counts every single minute of every single day. Within your MediaServe online account you can view connection details and stay on top of concurrent connection trends. We even break it down by type of connection (flash, Silverlight, iOS, RTSP, etc.) For more detailed analysis of your streaming users, we offer an option Sawmill addon which provides a wealth of details about your streaming users.
Occasionally we are asked why cPanel web hosting is bundled with our streaming services. This is due in large part to the fact that most of our streaming clients are churches who also want to podcast their video content as well as make it available via iTunes. The combination of web hosting services along with streaming gives you all the features of cPanel for uploading on-demand video content and password protecting content that shouldn't be downloadable. If you don't intend to host your website with us--we offer a free subdomain option during signup.
