Wowza Media Systems LLC, the "Any Screen Done Right" media server software company, announced the release of Wowza Media Server 3.5. The latest version of the company's software introduces savvy enhancements that allow content developers to have the flexibility and capabilities they need to stream media reliably the way they want - protected, scalable, high-quality, and to any screen.
Third-Party Digital Rights Management (DRM) provides on-the-fly encryption for live and on-demand video workflows, and now includes new options that offer Microsoft PlayReady DRM for Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), as well as the newest version of Apple HLS encryption. MediaSecurity is now incorporated directly into Wowza Media Server 3.5., with features such as SecureToken, RTMP authentication, RTSP authentication and StreamNameAlias help ensure a more secure stream when delivering content using Apple HLS, Adobe HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS), Microsoft Smooth Streaming and MPEG-DASH (Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP). Wowza StreamLock AddOn is a new security option for network encryption that allows users to stream using RTMPS and provides near-instant provisioning of free 256-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates to verified Wowza customers.
