Silex Media, headquartered in Grasbrunn, Germany, acquired all D.A.V.I.D. shares. The two organizations will continue to operate in parallel.
Silex Media offers IT-based solutions, systems integration and workflow products for broadcasters and media companies wanting to move from tape-based environments to digital workflows or from radio and television to Internet and telecommunications operations.
The two companies had already worked together on several projects for German public-service broadcasters, including an integrated radio and television production environment for Saarländischer Rundfunk (SR) and an archive management system for Südwestrundfunk (SWR). Joint customers also include Austrian public-service broadcaster Österreichischer Rundfunk (ORF).
Silex Media is a consolidated subsidiary of SGI Japan, whose shareholders include NEC, SGI, Sony and Canon Marketing.
