While ordering Wowza Streaming Engine on our billing system there are 4 options:
1- Live streaming, which as it says it is for live streaming or live broadcasts, perfect for broadcasting live events, sports, church events, weddings.
2- TV Station, perfect for TV stations having the option to upload videos and create schedules and playlists schedule at a predetermined time. At any time this schedule can be interrupted for live broadcasts.
3- Ondemand Streaming, with the option to upload videos and create playlists.
4- Live Camera Restream, used for IP cameras, the output of IP camera is normally RTSP or RTP ( example: rtsp://[camera-ip-address]:554/axis-media/media.amp ).
This format RTP or RTSP is useless for players, by using our wowza server and the Live Camera Re-Stream we convert this signal for playback on all supported player technologies. Some cameras are not supported, please open a ticket and email us the rtsp or rtp for us to check if it works on our wowza servers.
