“This acquisition further positions ARRIS to transform IP video delivery…from content creation to consumption,” said Bob Stanzione, ARRIS Chairman & CEO. “ARRIS and SeaWell Networks recently collaborated, introducing an integrated solution to monetize the multiscreen opportunity. SeaWell’s technology and talent impressed our team, and we are excited to do more together. Combining our solutions, technologists and roadmaps promises to accelerate the delivery of the personalized TV and advertising solutions that service providers need and their consumers crave.”

“This acquisition will create new opportunities for our employees, customers and the industry. This combination will provide the next-gen TV solutions our customers need to more quickly and cost-effectively transition to IP and multiscreen video,” said Brian Collie, SeaWell Networks Founder and CEO.

SeaWell Networks was backed by Northwater Capital Management, BDC Venture Capital, MaRS Investment Accelerator Fund (IAF).
