This is the next generation of Wowza’s software platform that provides a single extensible foundation and value-added components for “Any Screen Done Right” media delivery.
The software offers the broadest any-screen coverage for Flash- and Silverlight-capable computers, tablets, phones, set-top boxes, media players and game consoles; Apple iPhone/iPad and other HLS-capable devices such as Apple TV with AirPlay; Android devices; Roku media players; and Internet-connected TVs including Samsung Smart TV and Google TV-powered sets. The Wowza Media Server 3 platform offers a variety of AddOn components that help organizations of any size to deliver live and on-demand content efficiently.
With Wowza Media Server 3, formerly hard-to-implement features such as adaptive bitrate (ABR) streaming, time-shifted playback, and integrated rights management are made simple and cost-effective. Capabilities of the Wowza Media Server 3 platform include:
• Integrated live adaptive bitrate (ABR) transcoding enabled by Wowza Transcoder AddOn
• Any-screen time-shifted delivery of live streams with Wowza nDVR AddOn
• Support for multiple studio-approved DRM platforms

New capabilities will be announced at the 2012 NAB Show.
