Madrid-based product and service provider for broadcasters, Datos Media has announced during IBC 2015 that it has purchased Portugal's VANTec, a leading systems integrator with over 20 years of experience in designing and integrating virtual studios, robotic cameras and real-time 3D graphics.

"VANTeC products and services blend in very effectively with our existing range of equipment and capabilities," said Tomas Nielsen, CEO of Datos Media. "Combining our respective skills through this acquisition enables us to give media organisations and creative professionals wider choice, greater flexibility and higher operational efficiency. VANTeC will have access to all the accumulated expertise of Datos Media, including our proven experience in studio systems integration, post-production workflow management and broadcast-quality digital content archiving."

"We have established a strong presence in the Portuguese broadcast sector," adds VANTec managing director Alex Roriz. "Becoming part of the Danmon Group strengthens both our visibility in the international media marketplace and our ability to provide complete creative solutions. This blends in well with the increasing demand for fully integrated systems operating under a single unified user interface."
