Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) is gaining recognition as a successful alternative for delivery of the video by telecommunication and cable companies. IPTV features bandwidth efficiencies and management; therefore, it is ideally suited for broadcast and multimedia services. IPTV offers the ability to stream the media in smaller batches, directly from the source. There are a number of basic problems that afflict video streaming; it provides no guarantees on bandwidth, delay jitter, or loss rate. Therefore, a key goal of video streaming is to design a system to reliably deliver high-quality video over the internet and to accommodate different devices that had made complicated for the streaming workflow. In this project by ―Implementing Software IPTV with WOWZA Server‖ we simplify the process with one server and one transcoder. To deliver streams to different players, browsers and devices we traditionally need separate encoders and servers which can take pretty big capital investment. And for live video which mean greater bandwidth and for a video which mean more file storage devices need more bit rate in codec and need more no of transcoder. Wowza Media Server is robust, customizable, and scalable server software that powers reliable streaming of high-quality video and audio to any device, anywhere. Wowza Media server accepts any video format and reliably delivers it in multiple formats and with the highest possible quality. Wowza Media server software integrates with third-party systems. We need a software or hardware encoder to push one HD stream to Wowza stream engine. We use a software encoder Wirecast, is a live video streaming product, works like a video switcher, controlling real-time switching between multiple live video cameras, while dynamically mixing in other source media to create professional broadcast productions on web. In this project, we combined the Wowza media server with software transcoder Wirecast, and we have provided a new approach to video encoding that streamlines the workflows for multiple screen delivery using standard video. And explained by developing a website, how the combined solution is changing the conventional paradigm by creating an operationally efficient, cost-effective, and unified multiple screen encoding and streaming model. Use any software or hardware encoder to push one HD stream to Wowza stream engine. The Wirecast transcoder creates a different quality of video and into different steaming formats. In addition, we developed a security for a website by providing a username and password to the content that will be protected and confidence that the streaming will be success. ―Implementing software IPTV with Wowza server‖ provides a solution with Wowza streaming engine, which simplifies the process with one server and one transcoder.
