Russia-based systems integrator Okno TV has acquired Megahertz Broadcast Systems.  

The deal will boost the range of projects Okno can work on to include mobile production vehicles, live production and RF.

“The acquisition of Megahertz gives us an immediate in-house capability, with a team of highly respected engineers and project managers that will help to facilitate the expansion of our portfolio to include production vehicles and RF capabilities and to extend our footprint globally,” said Okno managing director Jon Flay.

“We identified that sports and mobile applications were important markets and with Megahertz’s rich heritage in those arenas we are looking to further accelerate our growth internationally.”

Megahertz’s client base reaches across Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific. 

The company recently designed and built BT Sport’s broadcast center at the London 2012 Olympic Park.

Okno established a UK office in September last year.
