Wowza Showcases Live-Streaming Solutions Powered by Microsoft Azure at NAB


GOLDEN, Colo.–()–Wowza Media Systems is collaborating with Microsoft at the NAB
Show
in Las Vegas to demonstrate live video streaming solutions on Microsoft
Azure
. These include a solution integrating Microsoft Azure
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) capabilities, as
well as the Wowza
Streaming Cloud™ service
stream sources feature.

Developed by combining Wowza Streaming Cloud with Microsoft Azure
Cognitive Services, the next-generation AI/ML capabilities will be
showcased live at NAB in the Microsoft
(SL6716) and Wowza (SU7114) booths. This live-streaming technology
identifies objects and people in near-real time with minimal latency or
impact on the stream.

In further collaboration with Microsoft, Wowza recently announced its
new stream
sources
feature in Wowza Streaming Cloud. Stream Sources allows
Wowza to maintain transcoding services distributed across Azure’s global
footprint, providing faster start-up time and geographically agnostic
streaming capabilities. Users can quickly generate multi-bitrate
streams, optimizing content for audiences in a variety of network
environments. This, combined with Wowza’s recent launch of GUI-based
workflows for its Ultra Low Latency service, provides users with
unmatched performance and reliability for global streaming.

Wowza representatives at the Microsoft booth (SL6716) will be
demonstrating how Streaming Cloud with Ultra Low Latency, powered by
Microsoft Azure, provides unparalleled live-streaming capabilities and
sub-three-second global video delivery. Additionally, Wowza will be
hosting several in-booth live interviews with Microsoft to highlight the
power of this combined technology stack. To schedule an appointment or
