Thomson Video Networks has relocated its head office to a brand-new 7,000sqm building, the first office building in France to receive the Effinergie+ certification. The move is part of Thomson Video Networks’ growth strategy following the 2011 management buyout of the company. Thomson Video Networks currently employs over 400 people and has more than 15 facilities worldwide.
Located in the heart of ViaSilva in the EcoCité metropolitan development near the Rennes Atalante industrial centre in France, the new head office marks a major stage in the company’s development, Thomson Video Networks has said. The HQ is designed to provide an attractive and modern working environment that leads its class in energy efficiency. “Our new head office is a genuine showcase for our digital television expertise,” Delahousse added. “This new building demonstrates our ability to support our clients and partners in rolling out their projects in France and worldwide.
Thomson Video Networks has built its growth strategy on three main pillars: Consolidation of leadership in the historical markets of terrestrial and satellite video distribution
Becoming a key player in new segments including live Internet video broadcasting (OTT, IPTV, and cable services)
Speeding up the development and roll-out of the Behind Every Screen strategic approach, enabling operators to distribute video broadcast and multiscreen services in a single, simplified way using local or cloud-based encoding resources.
“Backed by over 20 years of video quality and compression experience, Thomson Video Networks has become a global benchmark. In fact, more than one in five TV channels around the world now use our compression and broadcast technology, and we’ve set an ambitious long-term objective to double in size by 2020,” said Christophe Delahousse, president, Thomson Video Networks. “The move to a dazzling new head office and new base in the French industrial ecosystem, together with the arrival of EdRIP as a shareholder and the management reinvestment, all point to a bright future for Thomson Video Networks. We are proud of our staff’s commitment to excellence and firm focus on international markets for the development of innovative solutions such as our Behind Every Screen strategic approach. This strategy will enable us to accelerate our organic growth and grasp real external opportunities to further reinforce our position as a key player.”
