Big Bear Sound has announced a partnership with Digital Garage to service the broadcast and post-production market in Ireland.

Based in Ireland, Big Bear Sound is a professional audio supplier and integrator, while Digital Garage is a UK-based broadcast and post production solution provider. The alliance is in response to the increased diversity of production mediums and the heightened demand for innovative technology in Ireland.

Operating out of Big Bear's central Dublin offices, the partnership establishes a new broadcast video and post production division within the Big Bear Group and brings Digital Garage's broadcast product portfolio, technical expertise and resources to the Irish market. The collaboration also brings on board Stuart Lawn, former Co-owner & Technical Director of Tyrell, as Technical Director and Solutions Architect for the alliance.

Both companies will provide video and audio solutions from all of the major industry brands including Avid, Broadcast Pix, Content Agent, Editshare, Genelec, and Storage DNA. They will create an end-to-end service, covering consultancy, sales, system design and integration through to technical support and maintenance.

Michael Browne, Managing Director, Big Bear Sound, said: "We have a long and successful track record in servicing the audio requirements of our professional media clients in Ireland and increasingly these clients are looking for Big Bear to provide all of their media technology needs from acquisition to online delivery. Having previously collaborated with Digital Garage on a number of joint projects, we recognised that the right synergies and shared values existed between both companies to enable us to bring an unmatched end-to-end service to the Irish market."

Michael Whelan, Managing Director, Digital Garage, added: "Having grown a hugely successful business in the UK and across EMEA, Digital Garage has already a number of prominent Irish media clients. The new relationship with Big Bear represents a perfect opportunity to bring our expertise, commitment and passion for creative technology solutions more prominently to this market.

"What sets Digital Garage apart is our ability to integrate highly complex and sophisticated engineering projects for major broadcasters and facilities. Recent projects have included audio post and archiving systems for Sky in the UK, ingest and archive system for S4C and ingest, shared storage and 4K Cintel film scanning facilities for the Irish Film Institute. It is this pedigree combined with Big Bear's local presence and extensive track record that we believe will make a huge difference to our future customers."
