US and European Hosting Providers Use Wowza Media Server Software to Cash in on Burgeoning Video Market

Wowza's media server product is simple to deploy and it works very well - I cannot say this about any of the other RTMP streaming products we tested.

Wowza Media Systems®, the media server software company, announced strong growth among domestic and international service providers who are now offering their customers Flash® media services based on Wowza Media Server® software.

Hosting providers across the globe, including MojoHost and Central Host in the U.S., as well as Armada Hosting A/S and Planet srl in Europe are just few of the providers leading the charge in Wowza-based video hosting services.

"Hosting providers truly appreciate where the market is going as it relates to delivering video to any screen, be it a computer, television or mobile device like the iPhone," said Dave Stubenvoll, CEO and Co-Founder, Wowza Media Systems. "They recognize that the adoption of video and its consumption is continuing to grow and their customers want to take advantage of this. For these hosting providers, Wowza is the company that provides industrial strength software that enables them to cash in on burgeoning demand for video."

Motivated by the massive penetration of Flash® on the desktop and the explosive growth of online video consumption on devices other than traditional computers, hosting providers are choosing Wowza Media Systems to help them take advantage of this demand and the opportunities it creates.

"We knew that video streaming was becoming the next must-have service for customers and we also knew we wanted to capitalize on this opportunity," said Brad Mitchell, CEO, MojoHost. "Wowza enabled us to offer video hosting services that allow us to expand our customer base and provide leading edge video capabilities on a high performance streaming media infrastructure."

Wowza Media Server Pro is an industrial strength, extensible and a fully interactive Flash media server for live and on-demand streaming, chat, recording and other rich-media applications. The forthcoming Wowza Media Server 2 Advanced goes a step further to enable companies to take streaming beyond Flash with support for Microsoft's Silverlight™, Apple's iPhone™ and iPod™ touch, QuickTime™, and IPTV set-top boxes. The upgrade to Wowza Media Server 2 Advanced is free for the Wowza Software Subscription licensees.

"Wowza has the best solution for RTMP media streaming." said Andrew Schwabecher, CEO, Central Host. "Wowza's media server product is simple to deploy and it works very well - I cannot say this about any of the other RTMP streaming products we tested."
