Metabyte Cashes in on Canal+, S-A
Metabyte Networks Inc. said it raised $10 million in series B financing led by Canal+ Technologies and Scientific-Atlanta Inc.
In turn, Canal+ said it would marry Metabyte's "MbTV" personalization technology with its MediaHighway middleware and personal video recording platform. With most of its deployment success coming outside U.S. borders, Canal+ software is ported to about 10.5 million digital set-tops. S-A is an MbTV licensee through a previous deal.
