Corel Buys the Roxio Product Line from Rovi

January 19th, 2012

Corel-Roxio.pngEarlier this month we reported on
Corel’s purchase of Bibble and it seems that they’re not planning to
stop there. Corel has announced that they’ll be picking up the
entire Roxio product line from Rovi as well.

The deal, which is expected to close
this February, will change over Roxio Creator, Roxio Toast and other
prominent titles in the Roxio line over to Corel. This will give
Corel a broader software portfolio, including video, audio and disc
burning techs more commonly associated with Roxio.

“On the digital media side, we
will have a full blown multimedia suite and a new offering on the Mac
platform,” says Corel global marketing VP Shawn Cadeau. “For
WinZip, we will be able to further expand our suite of tools, with
new data protection and security software.”
