Farncombe has said it plans to rebrand and relaunch the former MiriATE consumer device test automation assets following its acquisition by the media technology services provider.
Mirifice, the Bath-based testing and monitoring company that counted Ziggo and MTS among its customers, is to be split into two after the company was liquidated by its previous owners.
DTG Testing and Mirifice have jointly developed an automation system for the testing of set-top boxes and IDTVs.
Farncombe Consulting Group is to purchase the Professional Services arm of Mirifice Ltd. The deal extends Farncombe into engineering services and testing practices, while leaving Mirifice to concentrate on its multimedia services monitoring and automated set-top testing businesses.
Russia’s Comstar-UTS is to use a set-top box testing system from Mirifice for all its future IPTV and set-top box deployments.
