Barix joins Wowza partner programme
WORLD: Barix has become a Wowza Media Systems Tech Alliance partner. The non-exclusive partnership came about following a request from mutual customer, SportsLabs.
The relationship will reportedly deliver an interoperable solution combining the Barix Instreamer IP audio encoder with Wowza Streaming Engine media server software. Wowza Streaming Engine transports the real-time input stream from the Instreamer in support of live radio streams, on-demand podcasts and other audio content.
‘As broadcasters evolve how they deliver content to reach more listeners and support new business models, it’s vital that hardware manufacturers and software companies address interoperability across networked audio systems,’ said Reto Brader, vice president of sales and marketing at Barix. ‘Barix is working with a variety of industry-leading streaming providers to simplify the technology adaptations of content providers worldwide. Our partnership with Wowza is a prime example of two innovators coming together to help broadcasters design effective and comprehensive streaming networks from the input point through to the delivery and playout phase.’
‘We’re invested in helping our customers establish reliable end-to-end systems for delivery of broadcast-quality audio to multiple locations, in many formats, and over varied transport architectures and distribution networks,’ said David Stubenvoll, CEO and co-founder of Wowza Media Systems. ‘Partnering with audio over IP experts like Barix allows our customers to more effectively and cost-efficiently architect networked audio systems tailored to their specific content delivery needs.’
