Wowza Streaming Cloud Features

Pro-grade cloud streaming

Built on Wowza Streaming Engine Live Stream Transcoding
Built on Wowza Streaming Engine
Rely on a cloud streaming service built on the industry-leading Wowza Streaming Engine™ media server software, which produces reliable, high-quality audio and video streams that play back promptly and smoothly.
Live Stream Transcoding
Send Wowza Streaming Cloud™ a single “master” H.264- or H.265-encoded live stream, which is transcoded in the cloud to create keyframe-aligned adaptive streams of equal or smaller size. These play back seamlessly for audiences anywhere, on any device.
World-Class Edge Network Scalable & Reliable Service
World-Class Edge Network
Send your live video to Wowza Streaming Cloud from anywhere in the world. Simply choose the broadcast location closest to your live event. The intelligent delivery platform comprises a distributed network of edge servers and network-management software that delivers more than two trillion interactions daily.
Scalable & Reliable Service
Get the transcoding and bandwidth you need for any size stream, anywhere. Built-in redundancy and scalability mean you don’t need to worry about system failures, perform administrative tasks, or manage hardware or software resources.
Schedule Start/Stop Times for Live Streams Record and Store Live Streams in the Cloud
Schedule Start/Stop Times for Live Streams
Use daily or weekly schedules to automatically start or stop a live stream or transcoder at a predetermined date and time, speeding your production workflow.
Learn More About Scheduling »
Record and Store Live Streams in the Cloud
Create MP4 recordings of your live streams and transcoded output. Recordings capture up to eight hours of content and can be stored in Wowza Streaming Cloud or downloaded locally.

Brand Management



No Third-Party Ads Custom-Branded Playback
No Third-Party Ads
Have full control of how your audience sees your brand: No ads you don’t want. No extra fees or need to opt out. And no Wowza branding.
Custom-Branded Playback
Deliver live streams to viewers using a customizable player and hosted web page. Add your own titles, logos, and watermarks.


Advanced Controls



Custom Transcoding Custom-Branded Playback
Custom Transcoding
Use the advanced options in Wowza Streaming Cloud to customize transcoding settings, choose additional stream sources, and add stream targets. This allows you to build in redundancy, optimize streams for specific applications and devices, and scale to larger and more widely distributed audiences.
Viewer Statistics
See your number of viewers by country, including information on viewing location and duration for Adobe HDS and Apple HLS adaptive bitrate renditions of your streams. In addition, view details of stream-processing time, network usage, egress, and peak recording storage for the account.
More on Viewer Stats »
Modular Workflows REST API
Modular Workflows
Use custom transcoders, sources, and targets independently for modular workflows. For example, let Wowza Streaming Cloud transcode your live stream and then have an external CDN deliver the adaptive streams to viewers. Or bypass the Wowza Streaming Cloud transcoder but use the Wowza Streaming Cloud edge network to deliver your streams.
Use the REST API to control and manage transcoding through HTTP requests and to integrate with other business processes and systems.
Request API Access »

Built for Business

Service providers: complement your offerings by using the Wowza Streaming Cloud REST API (currently in preview) to power your live streaming and brand it as your own. Custom transcoding, the REST API, the white-label/customizable player and hosted page, and support for Works with Wowza™ partner encoders let you extend your business offerings while passing costs on to customers as needed.

Live Streaming from Wowza Streaming Engine

The Stream Targets feature in Wowza Streaming Engine Manager gives you options to control your transcoding workload:

Transcode in the cloud by sending one high-quality live stream from Wowza Streaming Engine to Wowza Streaming Cloud, which then transcodes the stream and delivers the adaptive bitrate renditions to viewers.

More on Sending Transcoded Renditions to Wowza Streaming Cloud »

Transcode on your own server and send the transcoded renditions to Wowza Streaming Cloud for CDN delivery. This configuration is ideal for Wowza Streaming Engine server configurations that have high available bandwidth and sufficient CPU resources.
