Discover Digital, the innovative tech company behind DEOD, has bought a 74% share in TV production company EFX Productions.
EFX Productions films and produces coverage of sporting events and concerts, as well as TV series and documentaries. Its facilities include a high-definition outside broadcast (OB) van and flight case solutions for event recordings and outside broadcasts.
The new partnership means that Discover Digital can now offer TV and streaming services across the board – from filming live events to packaging shows and live streaming them online and on social media.
This includes exciting new service offerings for schools, sports bodies and events organisations. Through the new shareholding, can film and package major sports events for organisations and stream them to sports fans on DEOD’s five sports channels, DEOD sport news, or even on the school or sports association’s own website and Facebook page.
Stephen Watson, Managing Director of Discover Digital, says: “We have worked with EFX through our involvement in the SuperGP championship over the past four years. They stood out for us because they were always able to produce great quality content in highly pressured environments, at an affordable price. This is a must for niche sports and school sports that do not have big production budgets and are looking at live streaming and video on demand (VOD).”
