HTTV secures new investor

Hybrid TV technology provider HTTV has secured investment from technology entrepreneur Luc Burgun and has named him as a new member of its board.

HTTV said Burgun had invested in the company, although it did not give details.

Burgun was the president, CEO and co-founder of Emulation and Verification Engineering (EVE) and subsequently served as vice-president of engineering at Synopsys when the latter acquired EVE in 2012. He currently heads a private investment fund targeting hardware and software companies in France.

“I believe HTTV has exceptional potential for success in the industry,” said Burgun. “I’m impressed by the quality of its management team, its unique product offerings, and its compelling positioning of the HbbTV standard. I am delighted to join such a company at this stage.”

“We are very pleased to welcome Luc to our Board of Director,” said Bernard Dupin, president of HTTV group. “We are impressed by his entrepreneurship in making EVE a success story and well-known reference in the industry. Furthermore, we are thrilled by the investment he made in HTTV. It shows his trust in our company. We look forward to developing an active collaboration with him and growing HTTV into a worldwide organisation.”
