Deluxe acquires Vericom

November 18, 2016

Deluxe Entertainment Services has the acquisition of Sweden-based technology firm Vericom, an innovator in the IP technology space enabling the transport of uninterrupted video including rich video formats such as 4K.

Deluxe has been working with Vericom on this technology exclusively for the last four years, integrating it into Deluxe’s MediaCloud linear playout service and Deluxe’s Broadcast Delivery Network (BDN) for live events and sports.

Deluxe CEO John Wallace commented: “Deluxe, combined with Vericom’s software, has proven incredibly powerful in delivering high quality video streams over IP. It is a viable alternative to traditional delivery via satellite or fibre with low latency and high security, and has enabled us to pioneer international 4K delivery and remote production using the public internet. We have enjoyed a highly successful partnership with Vericom helping clients get their live events, sports, and video content out to audiences and users worldwide, on any platform. As with our recent acquisition of Sfera, bringing Vericom into the Deluxe fold continues our strategy of investing in innovative technology that we can build on to provide efficient tools and services that help our clients thrive in the highly competitive global entertainment market. We believe we are just touching the surface of how IP transport’s efficiency can be adopted to the emerging demands of the market through production, post, and delivery.”
