Live Media Group Holdings has acquired Ohio-based video broadcasting and production company Lyon Videos. The transaction marks LMGH’s fourth strategic acquisition in the past three years, reinforcing the company’s position as a national production and live broadcast service.
“Lyon Video has built its brand and its amazing reputation over the past 36 years. Their relationships with clients across live events, sports, and broadcast markets have been earned through high-quality, high-profile productions,” Brad Sexton, President and CEO of Live Media Group Holdings explained. “The reasons for the purchase were simple: Lyon Video’s assets are phenomenal, their engineering team is one of the most talented in the industry, and the Midwest location allows LMGH to continue to support client projects across the country.”
Founded in 1986, Lyon Video maintains a fleet of 11 production trucks, including three that support native 4K/UHD production, and seven B-unit trucks that provide additional space for graphics, slow-motion replays, or second-screen production. The company also provides a production crew, equipment rental, and other broadcast solutions.
Lyon Video will continue to operate as-is with no change in leadership or company structure. They join the growing LMGH team, including Live Media Group, Live Mobile Group, TNDV and Harb Production Services. Combined, the operations represent one of the largest mid-level unit production companies in the United States.
“This acquisition is an exciting move forward for Lyon Video,” added Chad Snyder, President of Lyon Video. “By joining Live Media Group Holdings, we become part of a larger team dedicated to delivering live broadcast excellence. Our new home with LMGH will allow us to expand our services and depth of offerings to our clients.”
