VCI Buy Expands WideOrbit’s Orbit

The software firm’s purchase of VCI Solutions this week will give it about 70% of U.S. traffic and billing market share. Founder Eric Mathewson (right) says one result of the deal will be more participation in TVB’s ePort electronic ad transaction system. “WideOrbit supports ePort and VCI did not,” Mathewson says. “This deal is a boost for the industry because we will support ePort going forward. We think its a win-win for us and for the industry.”
