NEW YORK | ONTARIO | January 7, 2020 – Dialogic Group Inc., a communications technology leader in media processing software, announced that that it has been acquired by Enghouse Systems Limited from Novacap. The acquisition strengths the position of Enghouse in the enterprise video and unified communications market segment by adding rich multi-media processing applications and capabilities.
