BARCELONA, Spain -- Intel Corporation today announced that its venture investing organization, Intel Capital, has made four new investments in companies developing innovative technologies for the digital home.

Speaking to technology industry engineers, developers and designers at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF), Intel Capital President John Miner disclosed that the $200 million Intel Digital Home Fund invested in Digital 5 Inc.; a provider of consumer electronics networking technology; Staccato Communications Inc., an ultra-wideband (UWB) wireless solutions developer; Trymedia Systems Inc., a secure distribution technology and services provider; and Wisair Ltd., a UWB wireless chipset and solutions company.

“The Intel Digital Home Fund investments we’re announcing today support Intel’s initiatives to enable people to enjoy digital content – including music, games, photos and video – on multiple devices in the home and beyond,” said Miner. “These four companies’ technologies help solve key interoperability, bandwidth and distribution issues.

“Intel Capital focuses on breaking down technology barriers and accelerating innovation by applying its investment, leadership and cross-industry collaboration capabilities to the greater solutions ecosystem,” Miner added. “Solutions are built by weaving together innovations from many.”

Intel Capital’s top investment priorities for this year are related to communications infrastructure, the digital home, modular computing solutions for IT departments, and wireless mobility.

Through investments, technology development and cross-industry collaboration, Intel is driving efforts to eliminate the boundaries between electronic devices inside and outside the home and apply the performance, cost and integration benefits of Moore’s Law to the world of consumer electronics.
