Wowza Supports Live Streaming With MPEG-DASH nDVR

Wowza Media Systems has updated its Streaming Engine software to support Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH) nDVR operation. The nDVR technology in the company’s media server software provides the ability to record a live stream with while simultaneously allowing users to play, pause, resume, and rewind the recorded stream.

The Wowza Streaming Engine software update version 4.7.6, now adds DASH support alongside existing nDVR functionality for Adobe Dynamic Streaming, Apple HLS and Microsoft Smooth Streaming protocols.

“By offering the nDVR functions for MPEG-DASH live streams, content providers can now streamline their delivery without having to duplicate workflows to support multiple playback options,” says Chris Cross, General Manager of Core Products at Wowza Media Systems. “The move to include advanced DVR also further emboldens our development for future support of MPEG Common Media Application Format (CMAF),while providing the playback methods that the industry requires.”

As an internationally recognized standard for adaptive bitrate streaming, MPEG-DASH is central to the Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV (HbbTV) 2.0.1 specification, which is leveraged in deployments all across Europe. With the new update, application providers who are already working with MPEG-DASH delivery can now implement the advanced playback features and create code-agnostic applications using a variety of formats.
