Pathé Interactive

From Audiovisual Identity Database

Background

Pathé Interactive was a multimedia publishing joint-venture between the Chargeurs group and Philips Interactive Media that was formed in January 1993. The company established itself as one of Europe's leading publishers of quality multimedia programs by drawing upon extensive resources of Pathé's existing catalog of movies, and also held a 20% stake in existing French publisher Infogrames.

In August 1995, Phillips Media purchased Chargeurs' stake in the venture, acquiring the Infogrames stake along the way. The latter would eventually acquire Phillips Media outright in Mid-1997.
