The broadcast industry will see more acquisitions and mergers, given the rapid technological changes, according to the CEO of Imagine Communications and GatesAir.

Charlie Vogt said, “With an era of transformative change staring right at us, expect more consolidation and sub-scale failure in the industry."

“We believe that creators of content, broadcasters and multichannel video programing distributors will align and partner with market-leading technology suppliers such as Imagine Communications and GatesAir who have the experience, expertise, financial strength, scale and resources to thrive throughout the transformation,” he added.


Vogt’s comments follow a wave of mergers in the broadcast technology sector in the past 18 months.
