Siemens said Friday it will invest in GlooLabs to bolster personal media data technology.

The German electronics giant said by pumping money into GlooLabs of Palo Alto, Calif., it will be able to improve the convergence of the personal computer with home entertainment products.

"Their approach has received immediate, positive response from both the market and the fixed network unit of the Siemens Communications Group," he added.

GlooLabs has developed GlooNet, which is a multimedia platform for remote access services that facilitates the use of technology in remote locations.
