tribalmedia aquires iShell
tribalmedia today announced that it has acquired the media software suite iShell from Tribeworks, and will immediately begin marketing, selling, and supporting iShell. iShell is a software tool for Windows and Mac OS X that allows developers to rapidly create secure, interactive, multiplatform CD and DVD-ROMs. The product is also used to create other types of multimedia applications such as kiosks, digital signage, and standalone Internet applications. Matt Veenstra, president and head engineer of tribalmediam, has served as head engineer of Tribeworks for the past five years. According to Veenstra, Tribeworks' current support and engineering teams will make up tribalmedia's core team. "This is a great move for everyone involved," Veenstra said. "iShell is the primary authoring tool for many developers all over the world, and now iShell is supported by a company that intimately understands and cares about the needs of the iShell user base."
