Last Thursday (on April 12, 2012), Wowza Media Systems
, the “Any Screen Done Right” media server software provider, announced
that it would be showcasing the enhancements of Wowza Media Server 3.1, including the Network DVR (nDVR) AddOn, Dynamic Transcoder and the audio-only option for Wowza Transcoder AddOn at the 2012 NAB Show.
With the launch of the 3.1 version, the Wowza nDVR AddOn will become productized and allow the customers to deliver live linear streams as time-shifted services on multiple screens. For the users wanting to use Wowza only for audio stream deliver, the cheaper option of Wowza Transcoder AddOn’s audio-only option can be used. Apart from this, Wowza added the New Dyanmic Transcoder Overlays AddOn, which will allow customers to add text, content, images and rich media on existing streams dynamically, thus allowing better monetization opportunities.
At its end, Wowza mentioned that the Wowza Media Server 3.1 is the Company’s latest production version of the industry-proven Wowza Media Server solutions, and that it was excited to showcase the new features to its existing and prospective customers at the 2012 NAB Show.
