LINDON — Helius Inc., a technology developer for satellite data services, said Tuesday it has acquired StreamRider, formerly known as 2netFX.

Myron Mosbarger, president and chief executive officer of Helius, based in Lindon, said the acquisition strengthens the company's position in the broadband multimedia and business TV markets.

The StreamRider client software is an application that allows users to tune live to a multicast or unicast video stream and view it on a player application at their desktop. Stored files can be viewed at any time.

Helius will package and sell separately the client viewer, StreamRider, with their Satellite Router and their multicast file distribution product, MediaWrite.
