Sony Electronics has acquired Convergent Media Systems in the U.S., and plans to use its products to provide digital-signage customers with a fuller suite of technology.
Convergent, based in Alpharetta, Georgia, will be folded into Sony Electronics’ broadcast and professional products business.
John Scarcella, president of that Sony division, said the acquisition is a “key building block” in Sony’s move toward emphasising complete solutions.
“With Convergent, we can install and integrate the best technology available together with providing content creation, monitoring and distribution services. As a result, our salespeople can go to a customer and more confidently offer a comprehensive proposal,” he said.
Convergent offers integration services and corporate video kit as well as the Prodokol digital-signage system.
