Wowza Media Server produces thankfulness for me and I’m sure for many other organizations, companies, churches and educational institutions. However, today we’ll focus on what I’m thankful for.  Since it’s creation around 2008, Wowza Media Server has been changing the landscape of streaming media and it’s been a pleasure to be able to enjoy the ride.  There have been so many features that have been developed for Wowza over the years.  Since it’s Thanksgiving, here’s a blog post with a Thanksgiving theme.  By the way, Happy Thanksgiving!

Wowza Live Stream Repeater Improves Webcasting

Posted by Derrick on November 24, 2013 under Video Streaming and Compression | Comments are off for this article

Wowza Live Stream Repeater improves webcasting for events, conferences, church services or other activities. One of the benefits of implementing Live Stream Repeater is you can repeat a Live Stream that comes from a Wowza Server. Normally you would have to send the same Live Stream to each Wowza Media Server you would like to use. With a tool such as Wirecast you can send multiple Live Streams to the different streaming servers you decide to utilize. Unfortunately, this does not make for a good workflow in many scenarios because of upload bandwidth limitations at hotels, conference locations, churches and other places. With this in mind, you can send one Live Stream to your Wowza Media Server and then repeat the Live Stream using Live Stream Repeater on each server that you would like to have to play Live stream. Attend one of our Advanced 1 1/2 Day Wowza Media Server Training to learn the process of setting up Live Stream Repeater.

Give us a call about signing up to attend our Advanced 1 1/2 Day Wowza Media Server  Training, which discusses Live Stream Repeater. You can attend the training On-site or On-line. You can also call for Wowza consulting if you’re not interested in our training class. Call Freeman Compression Inc. at 407.797.5466 for more information or e-mail us at info@freemancompression.com.
