As broadcasters continue to wrestle with developing new types of signal distribution infrastructures, so too are major equipment vendors trying to figure out how to re-ignite their businesses and help their customers move forward.

Imagine Communications has developed an integrated master control room solution for jawapostv, a part of Jawa Pos Group. The new solution has been installed at sites in Jakarta and Surabaya.
TV stations serving viewers and markets separated by continents upgrade their PlayBox Neo systems for different reasons.
The Gores Group, a Los Angeles based, global private equity firm that has owned Imagine Communications (the former Harris Broadcast) for four years, wants its asset to grow. With a customer base concerned about the next transition—IP, 4K, 1080p HDR—Gores thinks the right strategy going forward is to develop size through M&A as well as global expansion and be “empathetic” to customers’ migration pains
