Integrating Graphics with Wowza Clearcaster - Universal Manager

With Wowza ClearCaster in Universal mode, you can broadcast to a wide variety of destinations including the Wowza Streaming Cloud service; a Wowza Streaming Engine instance; video-sharing websites such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitch, and Twitter; and other RTMP-based destinations. 

Flowics graphics can be integrated with Wowza ClearCaster in Universal mode. Here you will find the step by step guide of this integration.
