Arris sells another piece with deal for machine learning unit

Arris (ARRS +1.1%) has sold its Media Analysis Framework unit to digital ad platform Watchwith. That move comes a day after Arris unloaded its Whole Home Solution to Canada’s Espial (OTC:ESPAF). In that deal, Espial took over management of Arris’ WHS server provider customers with Arris continuing to provide media gateways and media players. Watchwith’s deal adds Arris’ machine learning and automated metadata collection to its capabilities. The technology analyzes, tags and describes video to reduce manual tagging needs (and therefore expenses). Watchwith will integrated it into its data-driven advanced ad products. Like the move with WHS, the Media Analysis Framework deal involves a transfer of engineers from Arris, and Watchwith will set up an R&D office in Chicago.
