Vitec Acquires SmallHD

News Image
Vitec Group has acquired SmallHD, the North Carolina company that supplies on-camera field monitors used by videographers, cinematographers, camera assistants and other creative professionals. SmallHD will now be incorporated into the Vitec Group's Videocom division, complementing its existing brands.

"With the rapid increase of independent filmmakers and videographers, the need for quality, high-performing, end-to-end solutions has never been stronger," said Vitec Videocom CEO Matt Danilowicz. "There is definite synergy between SmallHD and Vitec Videocom, especially given that their pioneering drive matches our own. The acquisition enables us to offer another set of professional and innovative solutions for the production workflow, and takes us a step closer to fully addressing the needs of this expanding and exciting market."

SmallHD was founded in 2009 by Wes Phillips and Dale Backus. The DP6 field monitor was their first product, developed through the winnings from the company's second 'Doritos Crash The Super Bowl' challenge win in 2010.

"We are looking forward to joining the Vitec Group of companies," said Wes Phillips, founder and CEO of SmallHD. "It's exciting for SmallHD to be included among the great brands that they represent. We have aspirations to continue to build outstanding monitors, and Vitec not only encourages that entrepreneurial spirit but offers the support and expertise we need to move forward."

SmallHD joins Vitec Videocom's ever-increasing lineup that includes Anton/Bauer, Autoscript, Autocue, Camera Corps, Bexel, Litepanels, OConnor, Petrol Bags, Sachtler, Teradek, The Camera Store, Vinten and Vinten Radamec.
