Motorola acquires Vertasent

Motorola acquired VOD and IPTV app maker Vertasent this week for an undisclosed sum. Most of Vertasent's apps to date have managed elements in a switched digital video network, like those run by cable MSOs. Motorola says it will combine the company's software system with its own hardware solution to give service providers the option to expand to "millions" of live and on-demand titles as well as the ability to stream to any device. The deal is similar to Motorola's most recent acquisition this past summer of Broadbus Technologies.
