Commenting on the course, Freeman related, “I’ve been teaching clients how to install and use Wowza Streaming Engine for 11 years, mostly in-person or virtually via Zoom or similar services. The pandemic has increased the need for organizations to implement Wowza for live and VOD streaming while complicating in-person training. This class, which is based on the training modules that I’ve used for years, is the perfect solution.”
