Euro Media Group (EMG) has confirmed the acquisition of Broadcast RF (BRF), a leading RF service supplier. This acquisition consolidates EMG’s leadership in providing RF solutions for major events around the world.

Broadcast RF is Europe’s leading source of RF technology for use in the making of television programmes, covering sports, news and light entertainment events. The company has established itself as the first choice for many large world-wide events such as the FIFA World Cup, the Six Nations Rugby tournament, the Ryder Cup and the Open Golf Championships as well as major international news and entertainment coverage.

This latest acquisition strengthens EMG’s commitment within RF and specialist services while continuing to provide a wide range of innovative solutions to clients. Broadcast RF’s proven experience in RF delivery and its reputation in the field of high tech rentals provide a great opportunity for EMG to broaden its range of specialist broadcast services whilst complimenting those already offered by the Group.

Thierry Drilhon, Chairman and CEO of EMG, said: “This acquisition gives us the opportunity to become the undisputed worldwide leader for any kind of RF solution. BRF is a highly-respected provider of RF transmission solutions with a strong market recognition. We are delighted to have their team joining our Euro Media France RF and EurolinX teams, bringing an experienced premium service to all of our customers.”
