iPhone live streaming platform to launch in Q4

Telestream® and Wowza Media Systems have announced a new platform for live streaming media to the iPhone and other web players.


Telestream and Wowza Media Systems have announced a new platform for streaming live media to the iPhone and other web players. Using Telestream's Wirecast production software alongside Wowza's soon-to-ship Media Server 2 Advanced, which has expanded beyond Flash by adding H.264 support, users can stream high-quality video to the iPhones or iPod touch, Silverlight, Flash, QuickTime and IPTV-based set-top boxes.

Wirecast can stream feeds from multiple live cameras and other graphic media, with support for bluescreen compositing, transitions and titling. It is geared for producing broadcast-level productions for web distribution.

Wowza's streaming system is HTTP based, capable of sending out secure feeds with variable bitrates, livestream repeating and NetStream.play 2.

Wowza and Telestream will demonstrate the platform at the International Broadcasters Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam from September 11th through the 15th. Wowza Media Server 2 is set to launch in the fourth quarter of 2009. Wirecast software costs $500, while the Wowza Media Server Software Subscription costs $65-per month.
