(GDI), have signed an agreement designating GDI as a North American distributor for Wowza Streaming Engine™—customizable and scalable media server software. Resellers in North America can now source the product from GDI.
“With the strong demand for platform-agnostic, multiformat software that powers reliable streaming of high-quality video and audio to any device, Wowza Streaming Engine is a perfect addition to our line of products,” said Scott Whitcomb, sales manager, GDI. “We’re excited to be able to offer this product to our customers and help the Wowza brand increase its visibility and sales.”
“The partnership between GDI and Wowza Media Systems is a sound decision because of GDI’s relationships with first-class hardware vendors such as Matrox and Osprey Video,” said Matt Rossi, director, business and segment development, Wowza. “That, plus their relationships with world-class resellers and their product and channel expertise, made them the ideal partner for ensuring that our Wowza Streaming Engine software thrives in our target markets.”
To kick off its launch of Wowza Streaming Engine in North American markets, GDI is offering end users a $200 instant rebate when the software is purchased with either the Matrox Monarch HD or the Matrox Monarch HDX video streaming and recording appliance.
