“We look forward to leveraging our market experience, technology strengths and deep customer relationships to help continue the success of GoVideo and build on the line and brand,” said Bill Fetter, CEO of GPX. “The GoVideo line is a great addition to the GPX family of products, and this license is one of the many developments we have implemented in connection with our strategic growth initiatives.”
