Euro Media France acquires S-TV
S-TV will become a 100% subsidiary of Euro Media France at the end of the year. According to EMF, the aquisition will bring with it new skills in the guise of mastery of production in the realms of satellite broadcasting (with Globecast as a partner) with multi-camera SD/HD.
Here’s the statement: Developments in technology and the miniaturisation of equipment has meant that this “production and satellite broadcast” turnkey concept is also evolving in the markets of filming with 4-5 cameras, primarily in the fields of sporting and other events.
“In joining with Euro Media, we will be able to consolidate our team and to develop this market to benefit both our clients and our partners,” commented Jean Aouidad, President and founder of S-TV.
The SNG resources will strengthen Euro Media France’s existing fleet of mobile units, made up of 12 OB trucks (7 of which are HD), 5 HF trucks (HD), 6 editing/graphics/Slow-motion trucks (HD) and 1 Fly control room (HD). On a larger scale it will also compliment the established range of services provided by Euro Media Group on an international level.
Furthermore, S-TV also offers other types of service such as the production of institutional films, documentaries and reporting. Lastly, it has post-production facilities at its disposal, including graphics, titling and credits, and DVD authoring.
