Montreal, Canada — December 9, 2020 — Matrox® Video is pleased to announce that Vowos has chosen Matrox DSX Core software modules to develop a virtualized playout solution for Poland’s renowned Documentary and Feature Film Studio (WFDiF). Requiring a new streaming and video-on-demand (VOD) platform to meet the increasing demand for WFDiF content during COVID-19, Vowos integrated DSX Core to create a software-defined platform for instant channel deployment.
