Mediapro Canada Acquires Tri-Lite TV
Mediapro Canada has announced the acquisition of Tri-Lite TV, a Canadian production company with more than 20 years’ experience. Tri-Lite TV based in the State of Ontario, also offers a production center with 500 m² of studio space, MCR’s, technical systems and equipment for the production of events covering a wide range of sports, entertainment, and news both in Canada and in USA. The company incorporates 3 HD OB Units into the fleet of the Mediapro Group.
Mediapro recently acquired the global media rights for the next 10 years to the Canadian Premier League, a new competition that will launch on April 27th with more than 130 scheduled games for the first season over an extensive geographical area of more than 6,000 kilometers: from Halifax to Victoria Island. Mediapro Canada has 5 OB Units (a recently acquired 4K) to meet this important challenge.
Chris Priess, president of Tri-Lite TV, has joined the Mediapro team in Canada as General Manager of Broadcast Services.
“Tri-Lite TV was ideally suited for our expansion given their remote broadcast experience and their diverse customer base, and it is respected for the quality of service it delivers,” states Óscar López, CEO of Mediapro Canada. “We see it as a natural fit within our business and look forward to working with Chris and the rest of the team to continue to grow Mediapro throughout North America.”
Mediapro has made a significant investment to ensure that all Outside Broadcast Units are capable and have the quality to offer the retransmission of major events. The 4K OB Unit is an example of the Mediapro Group’s commitment to always offering the highest quality standards in its audiovisual productions.
“Joining Mediapro is certainly a proud moment for myself and the rest of our great team. We are excited to be working with Oscar and the wealth of experience everyone brings as we quickly expand our services to all our valued clients,” states Priess. “We are just getting started, and further expansion is already being planned. We are very excited about the future.”
