Thomson Broadcast cites ‘flying start’ to 2013
Thomson Broadcast reports that it has begun the year strongly, with a major sales success coinciding with the finalisation of the company’s new financial and management structure. Now part of the Arelis Group, Thomson Broadcast will benefit from expanded R&D resources that will help the company spread development costs and get innovative technologies to the market more rapidly.
Completed in December 2012, the acquisition by the technology-focused Arelis Group brings secure long-term funding from a mixture of private venture capital and government sources, with senior management taking an ownership stake, under the leadership of group CEO Pascal Veillat.
Veillat comments: “The long history of Thomson Broadcast – a pioneer since the earliest days of broadcasting – has entered an energetic new phase. We are on a strong growth trajectory, with ambitious targets over the next three years. The Thomson Broadcast brand continues unchanged, and our programme of new product launches continues through 2013 with particular focus on the Futhura range and developments in the radio product portfolio. And we have got off to a great start in 2013 with a very large deal for a long-term broadcast infrastructure project.”
Thomson Broadcast will have a presence at NAB 2013 show and will exhibit the full product range at IBC 2013 in September.
