"Macrovision has a deep expertise in providing tamper-resistant technologies for a broad range of entertainment media and we are excited by the prospect of leveraging their strength and expertise as we advance our PulseOne Media Service," said RioPort CFO Wade Meyercord.

The company also announced the opening of a Japanese Subsidiary, KK Rioport.com Japan. The company has secured initial funding from one of Japan's premier VC firms JAFCO, as well as Softbank Internet Technology Funds.
