About VideoWare: VideoWare is in the streaming media industry and markets the Niagara and GoStream product lines, internationally. There are four patents associated with these product lines. Streaming video is the future of television and Valdor management believes now is the time to enter this compelling business sector. In addition to the price versus value argument supporting Valdor making this acquisition: 1) the streaming video industry is converting to fiber optics; 2) the VideoWare customers are a market for fiber optic components, unrelated to their video streaming and; 3) VideoWare management, that are part of the acquisition, has significant experience and contacts in the fiber optics industry. 



About the Fiber Optics Industry: Fiber optics is the future of communications. The signal transmission business is in the early stages of a fiber optics bull market. Signal transmission in its many and various forms is being converted from electrical to fiber optics. A comprehensive report by Global Industry Analysts Inc., on the fiber optic components market, projects that the fiber optics market will reach US$42 billion by the year 2017.
