Soliton and Wowza announce partner integration for live video streaming
Mobile live-video contribution specialist Soliton Systems and cloud-based video and audio streaming company Wowza Media Systems have announced a joint integration of complementary technologies for live video capture and IP distribution.
The integration between Soliton and Wowza demonstrates the benefits of joined-up and interoperable workflows, thus allowing consumers to buy best of breed technologies with proven integration through standard IP streaming protocols. The joined offering allows production companies and broadcasters to send live video from a remote location via 3G/4G networks, and then ultimately playout to any device around the world.
Soliton’s recent announcement of decoding to a video IP stream of RTMP or RTSP, opens a new possibility of cloud and internet based environments for more efficient media workflows. This is the next generation and alternative of using traditional base-band HD-SDI type streaming.
Soliton’s decoding software, HDView, can connect automatically to the Wowza Streaming Cloud, and this can in turn provide an array of additional services from multi-delivery to encoding, which can be used for OTT, VOD and other IP based multi-device delivery platforms. This is easily delivered securely through the internet. Live recording can be delivered to a multitude of devices with very little delay.
Hiroshi Ochiai, product manager at Soliton Systems, commented: “As well as live streaming to social media platforms and other IP platforms such as YouTube, we are now pleased to announce a successful integration with the cloud based streaming server provider Wowza.”
Ochiai continued: “We are pleased that our integration with Wowza has proved very successful, and we have made it easy for our customers to automatically expand their media workflows to take advantage of cloud based features, especially with functionality that a respected partner such as Wowza have built up over many years. We look forward to a long partnership with Wowza by providing a proven solution and increased choice for our customers.”
Wowza Streaming Engine is a customisable and scalable platform that powers reliable video and audio streaming to any device. The software can be deployed on premises or in the cloud, and it offers complete server-level control, cost-effective monthly pricing and APIs for workflow automation.
