"Working with DaTARIUS GmbH over the last several years has given DataPlay a unique insight into the optical test equipment marketplace," said Bill Almon Jr., President and CEO of DPHI, Inc. / DataPlay. "We are pleased to be able to build upon DaTARIUS GmbH's past successes and leverage DataPlay's optical expertise in integrating future designs. Our goal is to rapidly integrate the two companies and continue to support the existing customer base."
The DataPlay/DaTARIUS relationship began in 2005 as a cooperative joint venture with the purpose of developing optical drive technology for DaTARIUS's existing and next generation products, including CD, DVD, and Blu-ray formats. Since then, DataPlay and DaTARIUS have worked together creating proprietary technology to establish DaTARIUS's DaTABANK product line.
