Streaming software specialist Wowza Media Systems announced at IBC that it has acquired Camfoo, a leading solution for managing cloud-based media streaming.
The Camfoo team has developed, implemented and delivered more than 1,000 streaming media projects since 2006. The company's technology has powered some of the largest live media events on the Internet, from major music festivals to the British royal wedding.
"Wowza products have been used by Camfoo for several years," said David Stubenvoll, co-founder and CEO of Wowza. "Integrating Camfoo's automation technology with Wowza provides customers the simplest and most robust way to manage cloud streaming. We're proud to welcome Camfoo's team and technology into the Wowza family."
"At Camfoo, we figured out how to stream anywhere in the cloud, and Wowza has perfected streaming to any device. In tandem, our technologies have a lot to offer the media and entertainment industries," said Camfoo co-founder Philipp Angele. "We've been working with Wowza for a long time, and are excited by their vision for cloud streaming and thrilled about joining the team."
Camfoo is the first company that Wowza has acquired since its founding in 2005. The acquisition will enable it to continue to develop its Wowza Media Server.
