HDTV leader Evertz acquires Quartz

Canadian company Evertz has entered the master control market through the acquisition of Quartz Electronics Ltd., a privately held company headquartered in Reading, with over 450 master control channels installed worldwide.
Evertz has further expanded the breadth of its high-performance systems for the broadcast market and has increased its worldwide HDTV presence with this acquisition. As the broadcast industry transitions to the high-definition formats and broadcasters upgrade their equipment to HD and digital, Evertz now offers the most complete HDTV end to end solutions.
“The addition of Quartz innovative products and talented staff, coupled with Evertz market presence and infrastructure, will create an even more dynamic force in the broadcast technology industry,” said Romolo Magarelli President, Evertz. “We believe this to be a very positive development for our customers, as it enables Evertz to provide the most comprehensive HDTV solution for the broadcaster."
Alan Edwards, Chairman of Quartz, added: “We are delighted with being a part of a high growth technology leader who can leverage our complementary master control and router product lines along with our well established brand and international sales capabilities.”
