Broadcast systems integrator OKNO-TV has announced the acquisition of Megahertz Broadcast Systems, the UK-based systems integrator and mobile broadcast production providers.
The deal was completed on Monday 14 October and will extend OKNO-TV's portfolio to include mobile production vehicles, live production and RF.
"The acquisition of Megahertz gives us an immediate in-house capability, with a team of highly respected engineers and project managers that will help to facilitate the expansion of our portfolio to include production vehicles and RF capabilities and to extend our footprint globally," said Jon Flay, managing director of OKNO-TV (UK).
"We identified that sports and mobile applications were important markets and with Megahertz's rich heritage in those arenas we are looking to further accelerate our growth internationally."
Megahertz has an established international client base extending across Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific.
The company recently designed and built a massive broadcast center at the London 2012 Olympic Park for BT Sports incorporating five production galleries, 20 edit suites, eight voiceover suites as well as the master control and playout center.
Additionally, Megahertz has recently completed the turnkey systems integration on outside broadcast vehicles for Oman Television and Astro in Malaysia.
