MONTREAL — Oct. 4, 2013 — Matrox® Video today celebrated the company’s inclusion on the Streaming Media 100 List of the most important companies in online video.

“As the number of companies in our space has grown, we’ve narrowed the purview of the Streaming Media 100 to focus exclusively on what we call ‘the enablers’,” said Streaming Media editor Eric Schumacher-Rasmussen. “The companies in the Streaming Media 100 are the technology leaders and innovators that make it possible for video publishers in all verticals—entertainment, education, enterprise, and government—to get their content to their viewers efficiently and effectively, and to maximize ROI to boot.”

“The successful launches of the Matrox Monarch HD video streaming and recording appliance and the Matrox VS4 quad HD capture and ISO recording card for Telestream Wirecast live production streaming software were no doubt instrumental in Matrox receiving this industry recognition,” said Alberto Cieri, senior director of sales and marketing, Matrox Video. “We are honored that the Steaming Media 100 judges recognized the technological innovation and commercial success of these new products.”
