News Image
The UK's two leading media & entertainment technology providers have announced that they are joining forces.

Jigsaw24 has acquired root6 to create the largest and most experienced audio and video technology services and solutions business in Europe.

As the top two players in providing media & entertainment IT solutions over the past 20 years, combining Jigsaw24 and root6 will provide the depth and breadth of technical expertise needed to deliver the full range of audio and video technology solutions and managed services. This new acquisition is a significant step for both companies and will enable them to bring even more insanely great solutions to their customer base.

"We're incredibly excited about welcoming the root6 team to the Jigsaw24 family," said Jigsaw24's CEO Martin Balaam. "They have an unbeatable history of providing the very best audio and video solutions to the creative industries – we have been truly envious of their technical capabilities and over the moon that we are now one team. We truly believe that we're at a point of change in creative technology as businesses increasingly start to demand cloud-based solutions. Our combined business – root6's unparalleled technical knowledge and Jigsaw24's datacentre, managed service and logistical expertise – is perfectly placed to meet that demand."

According to root6 Sales and Marketing Director Rupert Watson, who will continue to head up the Media & Entertainment sales team: "Jigsaw24 has long been the major player in the UK creative technology market and we have seen them building their technical expertise in the media and entertainment sector. root6 are very excited about joining forces to offer our mutual customers the best from our combined businesses. The natural fit made it a no-brainer. We are looking forward to working together to take our solutions to the next level; creating a comprehensive one-stop-shop for current and future Jigsaw24 customers."
