Good’s win is the second victory in a three-year timeframe for a Wowza team member. Wowza VP of Product Management, Chris Knowlton, received a Streaming Media All-Stars Team honor in 2011.
In its sixth year, the Streaming Media All-Star List recognizes the “people who have done the most over the years to advance both new technologies and sustainable business models, as well as those who time and time again have given back by educating newcomers inside the industry, and evangelizing about online video to those outside it.”
Good is an accomplished software architect with more than 25 years of experience in product conceptualization, design and implementation in educational software, consumer and business imaging and graphics, and computer-aided design. During his career, he has successfully architected and built products for Digital Equipment Corporation, Structural Dynamics Research Corporation, Claris and Adobe Systems, as well as several small start-ups. Prior to co-founding Wowza Media Systems, Good was Director of Engineering at Adobe.
“I am quite honored to have been selected and recognized by Streaming Media,” said Charlie Good, CTO and co-founder of Wowza. “One of my greatest achievements, along with my team members, has been taking Wowza Media Server from a simple remote video recording server to a full multi-protocol media server, with our primary focus being on our customers’ success as both the driving force and guiding principle. Wowza Media Server’s features and capabilities are extensive, and I’m proud with how, as a company, we have been able to contribute to the development and evolution of online video as well as our customers' own growth and success.”
Based in Evergreen, Colorado, Wowza Media Systems is a Simply Powerful Streaming™ media server software company.
