Encoding.com, Wowza Media partner on encoding solution

Cloud-based video encoding specialist Encoding.com, is partnering with software company Wowza Media Systems to provide Wowza customers with custom Encoding.com presets to simplify the preparation and transcoding of videos into the optimal formats for adaptive bitrate delivery.

Wowza supports both live and VOD adaptive bitrate streaming to an array of devices. Having presets from a video transcoding vendor like Encoding.com will allow Wowza users to easily produce common adaptive bitrate files from the plethora of source file formats, for any-screen delivery.

"This partnership expands that notion by leveraging Encoding.com's custom Wowza transcoding presets, so Wowza customers can remove yet another complicated component in their video workflow," said Jeff Malkin, president of Encoding.com.

Wowza Media Systems, a privately held with headquarters in Evergreen, Colo., said more than 80,000 global licensees in entertainment, social media, advertising, enterprise, education, government, and Internet commerce have deployed Wowza's media server software to date.

Encoding.com, which last week rolled out a pro version of its universal video platform Vid.ly.com, powers over 2,000 companies, including leading brands across media and entertainment, eLearning, retail, telecommunications, lifestyle and advertising.
