Denver, April 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Correction: This is an amended version of a press release with the same headline released at 9:00 a.m. MST on April 6, 2020. This corrected version omits that Wowza Streaming Engine is available through the Google Cloud Marketplace. This version also corrects Kevin Ichhpurani’s quote to reflect that customers can deploy Wowza Streaming Cloud (rather than Wowza Streaming Engine) on Google Cloud.
