Virtual Cable Company Internet Broadcasting Corp. Closes Series A Round in Order to Roll out Disruptive Service

COLUMBIA, Md.--Internet protocol television (IPTV) pioneer Internet Broadcasting Corp. (IBC) has closed its Series A equity financing. The round was led by sophisticated Washington DC area angel investors and the company's existing investor Silver Stone Capital came in as a co-investor.


This financing will help fund the roll out of Vibble TV, the company's initial offering that focuses on the three million plus South Asians in the United States. Vibble TV's offering already includes leading Indian television content provider ZEE TV and 60 other channels. In addition, Vibble TV offers to its subscribers over 500 Bollywood movies and the entire library of Amar Chitra Katha animated Indian fables through video on demand. The company is continuing to add compelling content to its lineup and plans on launching the service in May.

With the largest selection of South Asian channels in North America, Vibble TV's audience can "watch whatever whenever and wherever™" live television and video on demand with the ability to pause, fast-forward or rewind. Capable of delivering content seamlessly to mobile devices, tablets, computers or television, Vibble TV expects to quickly become the IPTV alternative of choice in today's entertainment market for its target market.

"We are excited to have the support of our new investors as we bring television viewing to the 21st century," said Suresh Kadagala, the CEO and founder of IBC. "Our goal is to create the world's leading IPTV company and our investors share our vision and passion." Vibble TV also plans to roll out service to other ethnic markets later in the year.

With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
