Announcing Wowza Aquires Flowplayer

I am excited to announce that Flowplayer has been acquired by Wowza, a longstanding partner and streaming champion. The acquisition is a major leap in possibilities for both companies and is powered by Clearhaven partners investment in Wowza.

Accelerating innovation, powered by a strong product portfolio

Wowza has long been the beacon of the streaming world with battle-proven products such as the Wowza Streaming Engine and Wowza Video. Flowplayer has almost two decades of experience in developing award-winning player technology and cutting-edge video platform.

Both Flowplayer and Wowza have a strong vision of helping builders to achieve their goals when it comes to video development. It is even one of our foundational product visions in Flowplayer:

“We build a de-facto standard for video that help developers and business worldwide to create beautiful video experiences.”

By combining great assets on both server-side and client-side, we will together lay the foundation for exciting innovation. Flowplayer will continue to serve our customers, adding great innovations and features going forward as a result of being acquired by Wowza.
