LiveU acquires Pacific Live Media

Remote production solutions provider LiveU has announced the acquisition of Pacific Live Media (PLM),

The pair already have a strong relationship, with PLM serving as LiveU’s channel partner for Oceania.

PLM, founded in 2016, is a specialist contribution vendor. It provides customers with support for their live media projects and solutions to problems they may face in their operation. Its managing director, Chris Dredge, has historically represented LiveU and its solutions to production companies and online media in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.

Samuel Wasserman, LiveU’s CEO and co-founder, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Chris Dredge and the PLM team into the LiveU family. PLM has excelled in sales, service and support of LiveU’s customers in the region. With his deep technological knowhow and passion for LiveU, Chris has played a central role in growing our business. 

“Our joint customers are some of the most innovative adopters of our cloud-based remote production workflows worldwide. This move will help us to maximise our business potential and expand our end-to-end offerings as live events come back in full after the pandemic, facilitated by the tremendous local service and support.”

Chris Dredge, managing director and founder of PLM, said: “We are truly excited to join LiveU! LiveU’s best-in-class solutions have been the main growth engine for our company and coming together as one entity is the natural next step. LiveU’s technology delivers on so many levels and, as a trusted partner, we have taken great pleasure in developing innovative workflows that deliver increased production efficiency as well as a superb viewing experience. We can’t wait to see what else we can do to help customers with their live events, officially part of LiveU.”

This is the latest region-oriented expansion for LiveU, and comes after the 2021 acquisition of its UK partner Garland Partners Limited.
