The financing round was lead by Jerusalem Venture Partners (JVP) and is targeted at improving and adapting its products as well as extending its reach into the growing North America ATSC market.
Founded in 2004, Siano develops receiver chips for mobile DTV (MDTV) as well as terrestrial TV (DTT). It extends to hardware, middleware and software systems and is focused on providing complete MDTV solutions. Headquartered in Israel, Siano has offices in the U.S., Brazil, Korea, China and Taiwan, covering these regions for new sales as well as customer support.
