Wowza Streaming Partner Uvault Custom-Builds Application for Wowza Media Server, Enabling Broadcasters to Deliver Closed Captions to Any Device

Friday, April 13, 2012

Wowza Media Systems, LLC, the "Any Screen Done Right(TM)" media server software company, today announced that Uvault(R), a Wowza(R) Streaming Partner, and CPC, a leading closed captioning solution provider, have joined forces to create the first multiscreen real-time closed caption capture-and-delivery solution. The custom application was built specifically for Wowza technology, and Uvault will distribute the service through its cloud-based content delivery network (CDN), which is powered by Wowza Media Server(R) software. The technology will give broadcasters a simple, affordable, out-of-the-box solution for complying with the FCC closed captioning mandate well ahead of the January 2013 deadline.

"We've taken our cloud-streaming CDN to the next level. With only a minor investment, broadcasters can now comply with the FCC mandate and easily add closed captions to their Internet broadcasts," said Eyal Menin, president of Uvault Hosting. "Our partnership with Wowza allows us to deliver video to any screen. We're very grateful for their support in helping Uvault bring this innovative solution to market quickly."
