Tuesday 4 September 2018 | 12:39 CET | News
Permira has created a new company called Synamedia, formed from its acquisition of Cisco's Service Provide Video Software Solutions (SPVSS) in May. Permira explained that Syna means "together" in Greek, reflecting the new company's ambition to bring together broadcast and OTT media services and enable clients to deliver "exceptional" customer experiences. The acquisition will close in Cisco's first half, with Synamedia's executive team expected to outline the new company's vision and plans at IBC 2018.
