IBC, Amsterdam, 12th September 2014 – JVC Professional is pleased to announce that it has joined together with Wowza® Media Systems, LLC, provider of Simply Powerful Streaming™ software, in their Works With Wowza™ partner programme. Together, JVC and Wowza will give content creators the ability to instantly stream video from live events including breaking news, corporate events, concerts and sports. With streaming capability built into JVC professional camcorders, joint customers can now stream over both GSM and Wi-Fi networks, providing powerful live video experiences while on the go.
Wowza is an industry leader in streaming technology and, through this partnership with JVC’s live streaming cameras and the Wowza Streaming Engine™ server software, content creators can bring live video to end users anywhere, on any device. This opens up new opportunities for content development, as broadcasters are able to deliver real-time video directly to their viewers.
As a result of this partnership, joint customers will experience tighter integration from camera to streaming server, so those who want to transmit content directly from their professional cameras can easily connect to Wowza Streaming Engine server software. Broadcasters and other content creators can now economically transmit high-quality HD video from wherever they are to broadcast live on the air or online.
“JVC is associated with the very best in video technology and we’re pleased to partner with them to transform live event experiences,” said David Stubenvoll, CEO and co-founder of Wowza Media Systems. “The demand for live video streaming is growing and end users expect to see high-quality, real-time video, and this partnership helps deliver on those expectations.”
