Dalet Digital Media Systems has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Gruppo TNT S.R.L., a privately held Italian company that specialises in advanced broadcast solutions, with the aim of folding its technology into its flagship Dalet Enterprise Edition.
"We are very impressed with Gruppo TNT’s deep knowledge and experience in advanced technologies that are complementary to Dalet and that improve broadcast workflows, especially in live event programming and fast-paced content production environments. Gruppo TNT has an impressive list of accomplishments at major Italian broadcast operations, including Mediaset, Sky Italia and RAI," said David Lasry, CEO of Dalet. "The inclusion of TNT’s innovative technologies will further enhance the Dalet product portfolio, particularly in News, Sports and MAM."
"Our products and technology expertise have been proven at the largest and most demanding broadcasters in Italy in a variety of programming settings," added Giuseppe Bonariva, President of Gruppo TNT. "Now, backed by the worldwide resources of the Dalet sales, support and professional services teams, we will be able to bring these highly scalable, advanced solutions to the much larger global marketplace."
Dalet expects to implement some elements of Gruppo TNT technology into Dalet Enterprise Edition for demonstrations at the upcoming IBC.
