Wowza ClearCaster Pro delivers powerful Control with Cloud-Based Workflow Management, unlike traditional encoders that require local configuration and hold state, the ClearCaster Pro leverages the power of the cloud to enable real-time encoder command and control, preventing configuration issues while streamlining encoder setup and broadcast management. Administrators can build custom configuration templates, create streamlined broadcast workflows and tailor the web-based UI controls to meet the unique needs of their broadcast team.

Increase Overall Reliability With Adaptive Network Encoding With its unique low-level network tracking metrics and diagnostics, users can enable the power of adaptive network encoding over RTMP to automatically recover from bandwidth issues. ClearCaster Pro will constantly monitor low-level network metrics and performance, while automatically decreasing video streaming bitrate in adverse network conditions — ensuring broadcasts maintain smooth, buffer-free playback for end users.
