European commercial director of SIS LIVE Jean-Louis Cleret, stated: "SIS LIVE has had an office in France for 11 years and this investment is part of our on-going commitment to increase our presence.
"We now offer High Definition OB services in Paris and our new facility allows us to provide expanded services including live studio play-out."
