“By removing the need for pay-TV operators to juggle separate broadcast and broadband workflows and giving them the virtual keys to a brilliant new world of software innovation, they can launch new services faster to boost subscriber numbers and revenues,” said Julien Signes, senior VP and general manager of video processing at Synamedia.

Synamedia was formed last year, private equity firm Permira Funds re-purchased Cisco’s video software business, then rebranded it.
