    Considering how specialized this piece of software is, the least Wowza could do is have an example of Wowza Media Server in use. Then maybe have some links to sites that use it. Perhaps even compare it side-by-side with Adobe Flash Media Server. They do none of the above, so I guess we'll just have to take their word that it's a better product.
