BroadStream has acquired UK-based company Screen Subtitling Systems.

The acquisition was made at IBC 2018.

"We are delighted to include Screen Systems as part of the BroadStream family," said Herbert Brenninkmeijer, Chairman and Owner of BroadStream. "We have experienced phenomenal organic growth over the last few years, and it has been my desire to further foster both our continued growth and our position as a 'solutions oriented company' with targeted acquisitions that complement our integrated playout products from strategic partners that offer significant benefits for our global customer base."
 
BroadStream's OASYS Integrated Playout platform is a robust, playout solution designed to improve reliability and increase efficiency by delivering comprehensive automation and tailored workflow solutions that are flexible, scalable and easy to use. The OASYS high-performance, unified XML architecture combines ingest, scheduling, playout, automation, networked media management, integrated graphics engine, switching and mixing along with interactive remote access to provide a truly scalable playout solution that works for single channel stations and easily scales up for larger, multi-channel operations managing 10, 20, 30 or more channels in a single, unified platform.
 
Gary Glover, Managing Director of Screen Systems said: "This is an exciting opportunity for both companies as many of our customers have requested a playout solution from Screen that provides all the features they need for playout and also delivers a tight integration with our subtitling and value-add products, so this is a big step in the right direction for Screen and we welcome this opportunity to work more closely with BroadStream and their flagship product OASYS Integrated Playout."
 
The team at Screen are experts in subtitle production and delivery technology and consistently innovate world-leading systems that reduce production costs and increase transmission reliability and capability.

"The acquisition of Screen Systems is an excellent fit with BroadStream from both a sales and product integration standpoint and we are very excited about the potential moving forward," added David Bowes, President and CEO of BroadStream. "Screen's tremendous reputation for taking care of their customers and their organisation blends very comfortably with the values BroadStream lives by daily.
 
"Combining the best of breed in playout with Screen's leadership in subtitling technology with their strong position in Europe and Asia coupled with BroadStream's strength in India and the US markets will produce many key benefits for customers of both organisations."
 
BroadStream will integrate Screen Systems' industry leading subtitling products into OASYS to provide customers with a playout system with a fully integrated subtitling system.
