Crocmedia has acquired broadcast satellite company, Rapid TV with the acquisition spearheading its expansion into live outside broadcast, streaming, satellite and distribution services.
This will now complement the existing branded-content and studio services currently delivered by in-house agency, Rainmaker, creating new service offering titled Rainmaker Live, which will deliver live satellite and internet-based vision transfer services in Australia and around the world.
Rainmaker has recently facilitated broadcast and streaming production services for the Athletics Australia National Championships in Sydney, the Bowls Australian Open and Bowls Premier League as well as the NBL’s 3×3 Pro Hustle Australian series.
Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Pacific Star Network, Craig Hutchison, says he was excited to offer a premium, one-stop-shop for all production services to clients in Australia and across the globe. “We are thrilled with the acquisition of Rapid TV as it positions Rainmaker as a true industry leader in bespoke outside broadcast and streaming production services and one that can provide turn-key solutions for a host of clients.
“Along with the purchase of Rapid TV’s state-of-the-art equipment we are delighted to welcome experienced broadcast professionals Peter Morris as Head of Production and Trent Miller as Director of Creative and Strategy to the Rainmaker team.”
