Sony and Nevion have formed a strategic partnership in IP-based solutions for broadcasters and other industries.
To reinforce this partnership, Sony has become a leading investor in Nevion by acquiring a minority stake in the company through a share purchase agreement.
The aim of the agreement is to deliver even more advanced, fully-integrated media production solutions, enabling more efficient resource sharing across the network.
“This strategic partnership means we will be able to expand our comprehensive IP solution offerings that allow customers to produce live content connecting multiple locations,” said Mikio Kita, senior general manager, Media Solution Business Division, Professional Products & Solutions Group, Sony Imaging Products & Solutions. “Working together with Nevion, we will deliver an integrated and optimal experience for our customers.”
“This is an exciting alliance for Nevion, its customers and its partners,” said Geir Bryn-Jensen, Nevion CEO. “It is based on very complementary solutions, products and know-how, and will allow us to offer a lot more to our customers, both existing and potential, than we have been able to until now. It will also give us a much greater scalability and reach.”
