Who spent $4 million on Macrovision’s Trymedia games distribution/DRM business? RealNetworks, reports PaidContent’s Rafat Ali, confirmed this morning by a press release. Macrovision reported the sale in its Q4 earnings release yesterday, but didn’t announce a buyer.
Trymedia has 250 distribution partners including AOL and Yahoo!, Telstra, IGN and T-Online, and will double the size of Real’s game syndication service, the company says.
Macromedia bought the company in 2005 for $34 million.
RealNetworks, meanwhile, expands its gaming division. The company also bought casual game site Gametrust in September for about $20 million.
