Spitfire Creative Technologies, the parent company of Magenta Research and tvONE, has purchased Green Hippo, a developer and manufacturer of media servers and digital display products with offices in the UK and the U.S.
Spitfire also owns tvONE and Magenta Research, manufacturers of video processing and signal distribution products. “Green Hippo and tvONE each have core competencies in technology and customer focus that, when combined, provide superior solutions for both fixed installation and live events customers,” said Denise Nemchev, president and CEO of tvONE. “Most important is the comprehensive value we bring our customers across the combined platform.” The companies will continue to go to market with sales, branding and distribution independently as further growth synergies materialize over the next few quarters.
Green Hippo’s flagship Hippotizer product line drives presentations in diverse venues worldwide, such as theme parks, cruise ships, stadiums and other live events like the Oscars and Super Bowl Halftime shows.
