Combined Resources Will Offer Powerful Solutions for the Pro AV and Broadcast Industries
New Milford, CT, USA June 28, 2011 – Following its recent acquisition of Kentucky-based TV One Broadcast Sales Corporation, Nortek, Inc. announced that TV One and Connecticut-based Magenta Research are cornerstones of the newly formed Magenta Commercial Technology Group.
Magenta specializes in providing large-scale switching, extension and distribution projects to the pro AV and digital signage markets, while TV One dedicates itself to providing video, audio and multimedia processing solutions. Together, the two companies boast a rich, 40 year history of providing advanced technology-based solutions to the professional AV and broadcast communities.
Commercial Technology Group Chairman, and Magenta Research CEO, Keith Mortensen stated, “The ability for TV One and Magenta technology to be cross-integrated into broadcast and commercial AV projects offers integrators and consultants exciting new alternatives to approaching projects, while streamlining the overall process.”
Mortensen added, “Given the multiple ways TV One and Magenta products complement each other, the two companies were a natural fit to be the first two companies positioned under the Commercial Technology Group umbrella.”
Additional acquisitions are expected to further expand the Commercial Technology Group’s product portfolio in the coming months.
