The purpose of this small spot commercial is to put the Wowza name out there without boring the public with too much information. The “need to know” emphasis is that they’re an expanding company that provides streaming software to big name industries, and they can happily provide it for you, too. I wanted to keep this short and simple so as to entice the customer but not weigh them down with software facts.
