Dayton’s Stratacache makes another acquisition

A Dayton tech company is announcing a new strategic acquisition.

Stratacache has acquired Montréal-based X2O Media from Barco, the company said Thursday. Focused on digital consumer engagement and digital signs, the Dayton company said it sees “new growth opportunities” in the acquisition.

X2O was part of Barco’s Enterprise division, which focuses on products and services for meeting and control rooms. X2O drew customers such as John Deere, Verizon, Fox News and Accenture, Stratacache said in its announcement.

“With the acquisition of X2O Media, we will expand our portfolio with a complete solution for dynamic content display based on real-time data, plus add great new tools in the E-learning and broadcast markets,” Chris Riegel, Stratacache chief executive, said in the statement.
