Haivision Acquires CineMassive Displays
Haivision has acquired CineMassive Displays. With the addition of the CineMassive technology, Haivision will combine low latency live video with real-time secure data sources and communication elements to provide customers with a single-vendor solution for situational awareness.
“Cybersecurity, network, and physical threats are today’s reality that governments and large enterprises are now addressing with global multi-disciplinary teams,” says Mirko Wicha, Haivision President and CEO. “With the combination of Haivision and CineMassive technologies, customers can create a secure, global common operating picture from a single vendor leveraging both cloud connectivity and intelligent edge capabilities.”
CineMassive, based in Atlanta, GA, has 62 employees and had approximate revenues of $20 million in 2020. It develops mission-critical visual collaboration technology including CineNet, a solution that aggregates content from multiple real-time sources for display and interaction within control room operations centers. It also enables secure sharing for situational response across multi-site organizations and with remote collaborators. CineMassive has an exceptional installed base including Akamai, McKesson, Cox Communications, CBS, Stanford University, many US police/emergency response centers, and tactical operations centers across every branch of the US Armed Forces.
“We have worked with Haivision for over ten years and our companies share many common themes,” says David Minnix, Co-founder and CEO of CineMassive. “Our approach to real-time performance, security, and IT compliance in solving mission-critical challenges of the highest order is echoed by Haivision and reflected in the longstanding relationships that we both have with our customers.”
Bringing together real-time secure video networking and data visualization creates a unique offering in the market to assist with the challenge of immediate and coordinated response to complex situations. Haivision will offer end-to-end solutions tailored for mission-critical collaboration in Global Security Operations Centers, joint and tactical operations centers, public safety operations centers, and control rooms.
“Haivision and CineMassive are very complementary in the government and defense markets,’’ says Brian Henry, Haivision’s Senior Vice President of Global Sales. “Fortune 500 enterprises, public safety, and emergency response teams are looking towards proven defense-style approaches to situational response, and towards companies like Haivision and CineMassive which are built upon years of engagement, reputation, and trust in the most challenging markets.”
