The Rapids Rise Again as Antix Digital Acquires Live Streaming and Compression Portfolio from Imagine Communications Posted: 01/02/2021
The Rapids Rise Again as Antix Digital Acquires Live Streaming and Compression Portfolio from Imagine Communications

The technology behind one of the most respected brands that helped ignite today’s streaming media landscape is back as an independent, sharply-focused company again, as newly-formed Antix Digital has acquired the live streaming and compression solutions portfolio from Imagine Communications. Led by Tony Huang, the former head of product management for the same product family at Digital Rapids, Antix will accelerate future development of the solutions while taking over service and support for existing customers and systems.

The transaction encompasses software-based compression, processing and streaming solutions that enable customers to efficiently and profitably engage audiences across delivery platforms ranging from mobile and OTT services to linear broadcast and cable channels. The foundation of the storied product line was developed by pioneering streaming solutions developer Digital Rapids, which Imagine Communications acquired in 2014. Imagine continued to evolve the portfolio with enhanced features and new products, but with streaming media delivery now entrenched in today’s society far beyond commercial media and entertainment applications, Antix plans to bring the product line to broader markets.

The transaction also marks the return of the portfolio’s original “StreamZ” product branding. Imagine will continue to sell the Antix-acquired products to their customers as a non-exclusive Antix reseller.
