Broadband Start-Up Avinity Receives Funding

Dutch ITV software maker Avinity has received an undisclosed amount of financing from Big Bang Ventures and Solid Ventures, according to AC Euro. Avinity’s platform makes it possible to deliver web applications like video blogs, games, media portals and photo sharing to TV screens. It claims support of any kind of set top box. The company is also waiting for approval on a number of patents.
Avinity’s founders had previously created a company called NoWiresNeeded, whose products enabled high-speed and secure wifi communications back in the nineties. It acquired by chipmaker Intersil in 2000, which became part of Conexant. Avinity’s founders left Conexant in 2005 to start up this current project.
