Euro Media France Acquires S-TV

S-TV joins Euro Media France and to a larger extent the Euro Media Group at the end of 2011.

STV will become a subsidiary (100%) of Euro Media France and will bring with it new skills in the guise of mastery of production in the realms of Satellite broadcasting (with Globecast as a partner) with multi-camera SD/HD.

Developments in technology and the miniaturisation of equipment has meant that this “production and satellite broadcast” turnkey concept is also evolving in the markets of filming with 4-5 cameras, primarily in the fields of sporting and other events.

In view of reducing budgets for channels (broadcasters), this multifaceted offer of services translates in tariffs both reasonable for the client and realistic for the service provider.

“In joining with Euro Media, we will be able to consolidate our team and to develop this market to benefit both our clients and our partners” (Jean AOUIDAD, President and founder of S-TV)


These SNG resources (Satellite News Gathering) will strengthen Euro Media France’s existing fleet of mobile units, made up of 12 OB trucks (7 of which are HD), 5 HF trucks (HD), 6 editing/graphics/Slow-motion trucks (HD) and 1 Fly control room (HD). On a larger scale it will also compliment the established range of services provided by Euro Media Group on an international level.

Furthermore, the company S-TV also offers other types of service such as the production of institutional films, documentaries and reporting.  Lastly, it has post-production facilities at its disposal (graphics, titling and credits, creation of DVD/CD-ROM).

“I would like to offer a warm welcome to S-TV and its teams with whom we have been already working with on numerous projects” (Bernard CHAUSSEGROS, President of Euro Media France)
