Intel Invests In Five Companies Developing Technologies For The Digital Home


Intel Corporation today announced that its venture investing organization, Intel Capital, has made five additional investments in companies developing innovative technologies for the digital home.

The new investments, made from the $200 million Intel Digital Home Fund, include first-time investments in Cablematrix Inc., a broadband network services software company, Mediabolic Inc., a developer of embedded software for consumer electronics devices, and Pure Networks Inc., a provider of consumer software and services for the digital home. BridgeCo AG, a digital entertainment networking solutions provider, and Envivio Inc., a broadcast and streaming media tools and systems company, received follow-on financing.

Financial terms of the new investments were not disclosed.

"The Intel Digital Home Fund investments we're announcing today support Intel's initiatives to enable people to enjoy digital content - including music, games, photos and video - on multiple devices in the home and beyond," said Scott Darling, Intel Capital vice president and director of Enterprise and Digital Home Sectors. "Barriers, such as interoperability and ease of use, must be overcome to accelerate digital home technology adoption. We're investing in these five companies to help solve these technical issues, making it simpler and more enjoyable for people to connect their consumer electronics and computing devices and share content around their homes."

In addition to investing, Intel is delivering innovative products, technologies and specifications for a new generation of connected devices that work together on a wireless home network, helping to bring the PC and consumer electronics industries together.
