Net Insight today acquired Aperi’s IP video product portfolio as part of its strategy to grow its core media networks business.

With this transaction, effective immediately, Net Insight acquired the full product portfolio, IPRs, brand and inventory from Aperi Corporation for $1.2 million in cash. The estimated impact on Net Insight operating earnings for 2020 is limited. As part of this transaction, eight Aperi engineers will join Net Insight to continue development and support of the Aperi products.

The company said this acquisition supports its growth strategy of increased focus and investment. Net Insight has lately launched new products for internet-based transport (Nimbra 400) and cloud-based transport (Nimbra Edge). Other components of the growth strategy include accelerated Nimbra product development and a commitment to offer open standards Nimbra products to the market.
