Accedo Broadband, a Stockholm-based technology developer for smart TVs and IPTVs, plans to build a NY branch. According to Xconomy, the company announced its acquisition of Brooklyn-based CloverLeaf Digital, which gives Accedo an automatic NY presence. CloverLeaf, in return, can increase its operations according to founder Lawrence Brickman, “We wanted to be larger, more muscular, and have more resources available to us.”
CloverLeaf was founded in 2003 and develops services like personal dashboards and app stores for the interactive television market in North America. Its customers are mostly independent cable television operators and telephone companies. There has been increase in demand recently for CloverLeaf’s TV Everywhere, which makes shows accessible online to subscribers and pushes content to mobile devices and tablets. Brickman will lead the NY team for Accedo.
