Telestream acquires Vidcheck5 September 2016
Telestream has acquired QC technology company Vidcheck.
Established in 2009, Vidcheck system solutions are used by broadcasters, facilities and content owners including ITV, BBC and CBS.
Telestream will look to build on the past seven years of success, with the company offering greater global reach and market presence, particularly with Vidcheck flagship product Vidchecker.
“Vidcheck’s team and product portfolio line up very well with our area of expertise,” said Dan Castles, CEO of Telestream.
“It is not just some great technology and products that we are acquiring but also a gifted, talented and passionate team that will reinforce our resources here at Telestream.
“We look forward to leveraging our combined know-how to offer our worldwide customer base an even more complete and exciting product portfolio.”
Financial details of the acquisition were not disclosed.
“Telestream is a great home for Vidcheck, technically, commercially and culturally,” commented Thomas Dove, CEO of Vidcheck.
“The companies have complementary technologies which will feed into both product ranges, the most obvious being the perfect fit of Vidchecker auto QC with Vantage.
“With Telestream’s sales and support reach, Vidchecker will naturally be available to a much wider set of customers, particularly in the US. Being part of Telestream provides a great launch pad for the next phase of growth for Vidcheck.”
