Tektronix acquires Vqual

Test, measurement and monitoring company Tektronix has acquired Vqual, a provider of software tools for analysis, test and optimization of compressed digital media, based in Bristol, United Kingdom. The deal is worth $7 million in cash plus other considerations. Vqual's 14 employees will now become Tektronix employees.

Vqual’s compressed video analysis technology, combined with Tektronix’s transport stream and baseband technology, will deliver content analysis technology for customers across the entire content creation chain.

Founded in 2002, Vqual has worked with Tektronix for the past year and recently introduced the first fully automated content analysis solution for file-based, MPEG compressed video for customers throughout the broadcast chain. Tektronix said the acquisition would accelerate the delivery of products and solutions for broadcast customers seeking to implement advanced content analysis solutions.
