StreamDynamics focuses on end to end streaming solutions which solve the needs unique to large organizations, small government and houses of worship.
In 2014 Gerard Virga spun-off PowerStream’s Advanced Services Team into what is now StreamDynamics. Mr. Virga has been a veteran in the streaming industry for as long as it has existed. He co-founded PowerStream in 1998 and was instrumental in establishing the organization as an early leader of Microsoft’s Windows Media technology. This paved the way to nearly two decades of industry service.
His stewardship has resulted in hundreds of thousands of successful live events. Under Virga’s guidance, his team has been responsible for providing streaming services to organization of all sizes from Fortune 100 firms to SMB, Non-profits and Universities as well as Federal, State and Municipal Governments. He has either personally produced or assisted in webcasting almost every living U.S. President and numerous foreign heads of state. More recently he personally produced the webcast of President Obama’s speech at DreamWorks Studio in Burbank, CA.
Over the past 17 years Mr. Virga has been involved in numerous streaming infrastructure projects and initiatives for large organizations. The largest ongoing project was the PowerStream public Content Delivery Network (CDN) and the subsequent StreamDynamics CDN deployment, which were fully piloted from the ground up and deployed in less than two months. Mr. Virga’s consultative approach to streaming has assisted corporations and Universities in architecting hybrid networks which utilize multilayered services for both private and public delivery.
Mr. Virga’s vision also extends into the users viewing experience. His team has developed The PowerShow Framework, which is a modular platform that allows rapid deployment of custom streaming solutions and viewer experiences. As a design philosophy, the modular components can be easily updated for new streaming technologies. This allows for quick, cost-effective integration that is future proof.
To validate years of hard work, Streaming Media Magazine named Mr. Virga to their 2011 Streaming Media All Star Team. This is an annual recognition of individuals who they feel have provided outstanding accomplishments in the field of Streaming Media.
