LAS VEGAS, NV: Ramp, next-generation video management and delivery solutions provider leverages Wowza Media System’s Wowza Streaming Engine solution for streaming HTML5 multicast videos across the enterprise. Wowza Media System offers its clients, software and cloud-based services to simplify the complexities of high quality audio and video streaming. The partnership is built around a single standard supporting HTML5 and enables more platforms as compared to the single-vendor solutions.

Multicast is a communication between a single sender and multiple receiver on a network which allows the user at high bandwidth points on the internet to stream live audio and video. Tom Racca, CEO, Ramp says, “With this solution, we are providing the next generation of video streaming across the enterprise. We combine the superior performance of multicasting, the security and reliability of Ramp’s eCDN, and the future-proofed streaming power of Wowza Streaming Engine, while eliminating the security risks associated with Flash.”

To broadcast live videos across the Wide Area Network (WAN) efficiently and enhance multicast technology, Ramp’s AltitudeCDN Multicast solution provides a standard-based solution. The solution is cost-effective, easy to deploy, makes forward error-correction, enables bandwidth smoothing, and offers seamless delivery over Wi-Fi connections. Wowza Streaming Engine features a pro-quality streaming with on-demand content to any media and any device which is flexible, secure and customizable.

“Together with Wowza Streaming Engine, Ramp created a powerful solution for enterprises to communicate effectively through live webcasts. This approach greatly simplifies and standardizes webcasting to branch offices and other users across global WANs,” comments Carlos Perez, CRO, Wowza Media Systems. Ramp’s AltitudeCDN powered with Wowza Streaming Engine enables browsers—Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Internet Explorer—to support multicast videos by using HTML5 from the video source.
