The U.S. based DPHI, Inc. dba DataPlay has received the approval to purchase the assets and intellectual property of DaTARIUS worldwide and resume operations immediately.
DataPlay will be forming a new subsidiary in Austria and in
the United States to continue to serve DaTARIUS's existing
customer base. The new company will combine DaTARIUS's
existing expertise in optical test equipment with
DataPlay's technologies. This new level of integration will
allow DaTARIUS to quickly develop and manufacture new
products that exceed the current and future needs of
optical media manufacturers.
"Working with DaTARIUS GmbH over the last several years has
given DataPlay a unique insight into the optical test
equipment marketplace," said Bill Almon Jr., President and
CEO of DPHI, Inc. / DataPlay. "We are pleased to be able to
build upon DaTARIUS GmbH's past successes and leverage
DataPlay's optical expertise in integrating future designs.
Our goal is to rapidly integrate the two companies and
continue to support the existing customer base."
The DataPlay/DaTARIUS relationship began in 2005 as a
cooperative joint venture with the purpose of developing
optical drive technology for DaTARIUS's existing and next
generation products, including CD, DVD, and Blu-ray
formats. Since then, DataPlay and DaTARIUS have worked
together creating proprietary technology to establish
DaTARIUS's DaTABANK product line.
