Red Bee Media has confirmed it is to rebrand from June 1. In a Tweet posted on Monday the Ericsson-owned unit said it would have a new name and a new look.

The former BBC Broadcast division has 1,500 staff in the UK and Australia. It was spun off from the BBC in 2005 and bought by a Macquarie-backed venture, specially established for the acquisition.

The transaction, originally announced in July 2013, took a year to complete after competition procedures were followed.

Red Bee maintains contracts with the BBC, as well as providing services for companies including Canal+, the BBC and Channel 4, amongst others. There are also facilities in France, Germany, Spain and the Netherlands.
