On 1 May 2020, EVS, a leading provider of live video technology for broadcast and new media productions, announced its acquisition of Axon, the broadcast and media network infrastructure specialist.

It also has in international presence and a product portfolio that complements EVS' existing live production offering.

Integrating Axon’s product portfolio will allow EVS to offer its customers the most extensive live production infrastructure on the market, enabling optimised resource management, greater scalability and faster deployment across multiple sites for remote live operations. It also positions EVS as the only technology company able to provide a comprehensive modern media infrastructure solution.

"We’re extremely excited about the opportunities this acquisition will provide us and our customers over the coming months and years.

It will enable us to deliver the most comprehensive media infrastructure solutions on the market," declared EVS CEO Serge Van Herck.

The Axon brand, which generated a turnover of 17.5 million euros in 2019, will be absorbed into EVS over the coming weeks and its product portfolio will be integrated into EVS' global solutions offering. The objective is to integrate Axon team members and invest further in their technology and market expertise.  

We look forward to seeing the results of this wonderful union.
