Media technology services provider Farncombe has acquired the MiriATE consumer device test automation assets following the recent liquidation of Mirifice. Farncombe will re-brand and re-launch the platform in early 2013.
Farncombe has itself been using MiriATE for many years and sees demand for a number of value-added services around MiriATE, including training and scripting support. It has already developed a new real-time web-based reporting tool and is in the process of testing a number of new features.
Farncombe acquired Mirifice’s Professional Services business in 2010 and had been working closely with Mirifice as a partner of choice offering solutions based on MiriATE. Farncombe will continue to support Mirifice’s existing clients, which include the UK’s Digital TV Group (DTG), with a new support package for customers now available.
