Letchworth company acquired by Danes

ATG Broadcast in Letchworth has been acquired by Danish company Danmon Systems for an undisclosed sum.

ATG Broadcast in Letchworth has been acquired by Danish company Danmon Systems for an undisclosed sum.

A leading player in the Scandinavian leading broadcast market, Danmon Systems is a supplier of consultancy, solutions and services to the broadcast, post-production, professional audio, multimedia and audiovisual sectors.

Formed in 1993, ATG expanded from an initial staff of three to the current 15.

The company has provided systems for many major broadcasters and independent facilities, starting with traditional tape-based installations in its early days and migrating to workflow based digital production and transmission systems in recent years.

ATG Broadcast will continue to operate under its current name from its established headquarters in Letchworth.

Graham Buchanan and Alan Pimm continue as managing director and sales director, respectively.

ATG’s Custom Consoles business is not part of the deal and will now operate as a completely separate independent company.

The MD of Danmon, Henning Brønnum said: “This is a very healthy development both for Danmon Systems Group and ATG.

“The combination of Danmon in Scandinavia and ATG Broadcast in the UK, mainland Europe and Asia Pacific regions will enable both companies to benefit from mutual experience and shared commercial strength.”

“The broadcast industry has changed and is now based around a number of large corporate groups,” added ATG Broadcast Sales Director Alan Pimm.

“Typical future requirements demand high investment over extended periods.

“The system integration industry needs to adapt to support these changing requirements adequately.

“This new partnership will strengthen our relationship with existing clients and enable us to offer turnkey solutions to the largest media groups.”
