August 26, 2010

Cisco Announces Intent to Acquire ExtendMedia.

“As the video market transitions and consumers expect multi-screen engagement, service providers are enhancing their infrastructure to manage and deliver video to any device while providing a rich user experience,” said Enrique Rodriguez, senior vice president and general manager, Cisco’s Service Provider Video Technology Group. 

“ExtendMedia will strengthen Cisco’s position in the delivery of IP video services by enabling service providers to provide a more interactive and personal experience and to optimize quality for consumer viewing devices.”

ExtendMedia brings to Cisco a strong software team that understands the complexities of delivering multi-screen video over IP networks.  ExtendMedia’s CMS software, which will integrate with Cisco’s current IP video offerings, will be a core component of Cisco’s next-generation video architecture.  Together, Cisco and ExtendMedia will enable service providers to deploy a next-generation, end-to-end video architecture that delivers the best consumer experience with access to any content, over any network, on any device.
