Wowza Media Systems LLC, the "Any Screen Done Right" media server software company, today welcomed online video distribution network (VDN) provider iStreamLive as an official Wowza Streaming Partner, a designation reserved for those that have achieved high levels of deployment, expertise, and customer satisfaction with Wowza-based products. iStreamLive uses Wowza Media Server 3 to facilitate online video streaming for its customers in the Americas, Europe, Asia/Pacific, and Africa.
"Online video viewing has been on a sharp upswing in the past couple of years, and we intend to capitalize on the market demand with our Wowza partnership," said Stan Weatherby, CEO of iStreamLive.net, LLC. "Our core solution, iConnect, was built around the proven Wowza software platform.
