Intransa From the Ashes, Viakoo

Author: Carlton Purvis, Published on Apr 15, 2013

If not from the ashes, at least from the same building. We broke news a few weeks ago that Intransa's employees were laid off. While the company never publicly acknowledged the situation, there's no doubt that Intransa is no more. So what happened? Viakoo. We have further investigated, obtaining a company memo, analyzed herein.

What is Viakoo?

According to its website, Viakoo makes “advanced software” for monitoring video networks to “instantly spot problems in your video network infrastructure,” offered with a month-to-month subscription. The company says it will work with a client’s integrator to make sure video the system is working effectively and help fix it when it is not. It also provides “parts exchange agreements for Intransa-brand servers, storage, and VideoAppliance systems.”

Who is Viakoo?

We do not know for sure who's behind the company yet, but former Intransa president Rodgers (Bud) Broomhead set up the domain name Viakoo.com recently. Its physical address is the same as Instransa’s and so is its answering service.
