IBC 2016: Ross Video acquires Abekas
Ross Video announced the acquisition of Abekas, adding core video server technology, replay, and profanity delay systems into their product portfolio.
Abekas is an iconic brand, having pioneered many new innovations over the years and winning 7 technical Emmys for their contributions to the industry. Today, Abekas’ core product lines include Mira Replay Server, Mira and Tria Production Servers, and AirCleaner Profanity Elimination Delay System. Ross will be integrating the Abekas server family into its production system portfolio.
“Abekas’ product line fits perfectly into our portfolio and our live production focus,” says David Ross, CEO of Ross Video. “Replay especially, is a component we needed to round out our solution set. Abekas has a very similar mind set and value proposition to Ross, providing great technology at reasonable prices.”
“We decided it was time to join a larger company that could bring broader market reach to our product portfolio,” says Junaid Sheikh, CEO of Abekas. “We’ve enjoyed working collaboratively with the Ross folks for many years and felt this was the perfect fit for the Abekas team. We are excited about the next chapter as we continue to grow and expand the portfolio we have developed.”
Ross is launching their first product at IBC on Stand #11.C10 that shows the synergies of this acquisition, Streamline Play in which brings MAM and MOS workflow to the Mira Production Server for news production applications.
