Macrovision to acquire Trymedia Systems

Macrovision Corporation, a leading provider of content value management solutions, has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Trymedia Systems.
Trymedia is the leading provider of secure digital distribution products and services for the video gaming industry, and operates the world’s largest distribution network for downloadable PC games.
Macrovision also announced plans to launch a new business unit that offers a complete, end-to-end solution for game publishers to secure, distribute, promote and continuously renew their video games. The new business unit provides value-added services to casual and core game publishers designed to maximise the value of a game title. Retailers, portals, Internet Service Providers (ISPs), and Cable System Operators (MSOs) can offer the world’s largest catalogue of more than 1200 legitimate downloadable games to their consumer audiences.
Macrovision agreed to acquire Trymedia and its worldwide operations for $34 million in a cash transaction, which the parties expect to close by July 29, 2005. Upon closing of the transaction, Trymedia will become part of Macrovision’s new games business unit. Macrovision will continue to provide support for all of Trymedia’s products and distribution services.
“This acquisition, along with the formation of our new business unit, underscores Macrovision’s strategic focus to efficiently enable our customers to distribute their games both on and offline,” stated Fred Amoroso, President and CEO of Macrovision. “Consumers today want to be able to get their game content when they want it, where they want it and that requires a distribution system that enables that flexibility securely, while also protecting the content from massive unauthorized usage.”
