A fully integrated hardware and software solution merging NewTek’s industry-leading live production technology with powerful Wowza streaming software, the MediaDS makes it possible to deliver content from any production—or production system—directly to viewers. No additional services required.

Effectively democratizing video encoding and streaming for producers of live and linear programming, the MediaDS introduces a myriad of new opportunities for distribution, expansion and content monetization.


Seamless Integration

The MediaDS is fully equipped for existing and emerging SDI, IP, and hybrid workflows, with flawless, multi-format processing allowing supported source types to be used interchangeably on each channel. Streaming signals are acquired through direct, physical input using 3G/HD/SD-SDI hardware connections, over IP via NDI, NewTek’s innovative Network Device Interface technology, and from other sources, including TCP/IP, webcams, and USB capture devices.

Reach Every Audience

Freely flex your organization’s streaming video and media communications from local audiences to worldwide populations. With support for delivery to viewers on the local network through Wowza streaming software, in addition to all common streaming services, websites and CDNs, including Facebook Live, Microsoft Azure, Ustream, Wowza Streaming Cloud, YouTube Live, and more, your organization can reach all of your intended audiences, wherever they watch.


Signature Online Experience

Extend your brand and exposure beyond your actual video content. Each streaming channel includes its own independently customizable web page for audience viewing, with support for HTML and CSS editing to ensure that the on-screen experience adheres to your organization’s brand guidelines. Embed codes are also available to insert the hosted media player into existing webpages to complement your current web presence.


Extensive Channel Configuration
