Ross Video has announced the acquisition of Primestream. Founded in 1999 and based in Miami FL, Primestream is known for its Media Asset workflow solutions that enable the capture, production, management and distribution of media assets. Its solutions are used by international corporations that include Cisco, Microsoft Studios and Verizon Media.
Primestream’s solutions are used by customers within various market verticals, including enterprise, digital media, sports and broadcast. According to the company, its solutions solve the complex creative, business and technology challenges in each market. Primestream supports a range of workflows for live feeds and file-based content—from HD to 4K and VR/360.
The acquisition, which is Ross Video’s 17th since 2009, takes the Ross employee headcount across the 1,000 threshold. The acquisition will see the Primestream portfolio and teams, led by President/CEO Claudio Lisman and EVP Namdev Lisman, along with the company’s research-and-development (R&D) and technical-support teams, all transition over to Ross. Ross will naturally look to blend its Streamline media-asset-management solution with the Primestream products over time to create a fully converged graphics and production asset-management platform.
