Cinnafilm acquires RadiantGrid from Wohler
WORLD: Video optimisation solutions manufacturer Cinnafilm has acquired Wohler Technologies’ RadiantGrid intelligent media transformation platform. The agreement results in the integration of RadiantGrid’s intellectual property, products, and support contracts with Cinnafilm’s own technology development.
Cinnafilm currently uses the RadiantGrid software platform as the processing framework for its Tachyon Wormhole system. Wohler has served as the master distributor of Tachyon Wormhole since 2014 and had acquired RadiantGrid Technologies itself back in 2012.
‘Cinnafilm has been partnering closely with Wohler for many years as a worldwide distributor of the Tachyon Wormhole appliance,’ explained Lance Maurer, president and CEO at Cinnafilm. ‘Our collaboration with Wohler and the integral use of our Tachyon technology within its RadiantGrid platform made it an obvious and smart decision to acquire RadiantGrid and market it as our own.’
Wohler will continue to provide support to Cinnafilm during an initial transition period, ensuring minimal impact to ongoing RadiantGrid services.
‘The transfer of the RadiantGrid technology to Cinnafilm will allow Wohler to concentrate on building next generation hardware and software tools within the signal monitoring space, while Cinnafilm focuses on providing world-class customer support and product development of RadiantGrid,’ said Wohler president and CEO Mike Kelly.
