Mediapro Canada acquires production house Tri-Lite TV

Mediapro’s Canadian business has boosted its production capability with the acquisition of Canadian media services company Tri-Lite TV.

Tri-Lite TV currently operates five HD mobile production units and a production center with 500 sq. m of studio space.

Mediapro is the production partner and rights distributor of the new Canadian Premier League, which kicks off this week.

Óscar López, Mediapro Canada chief executive, said: “Tri-Lite TV was ideally suited for our expansion given their remote broadcast experience and their diverse customer base, and it is respected for the quality of service it delivers. We see it as a natural fit within our business and look forward to working with Chris and the rest of the team to continue to grow Mediapro throughout North America.”

As part of the acquisition, Tri-Lite TV president Chris Priess has joined the Mediapro team in Canada as general manager of broadcast services.
