Enables LinkUp to provide more tailored solutions
for broadcast content delivery.
PANAMA CITY, Fla., November 3, 2021 – LinkUp Communications Corporation (LinkUp) based in Panama City, FL, has acquired the majority of assets from Orbital Media Networks, Incorporated (OMNi) in Englewood, CO, effective November 1, 2021.
The acquisition includes the service agreements for a wide array of broadcast customers, including those who purchase space segment and other services from OMNi, and others who subscribe to the company’s XDS satellite and streaming platform.
It does not include the Rocky Mountain News Network, nor OMNi’s two-way IP services.
As president of LinkUp, Mark says this acquisition offers clients and prospects a unique opportunity. “We’re bringing together the best of both companies to benefit both OMNi and LinkUp’s existing customers, who include both secular and faith-based broadcasters, universities and colleges, sports distribution, and businesses. Our knowledge and skills compliment each other. While OMNi offers the best in innovation and technology with their content distribution facility, LinkUp is known for its quality service, tailored solutions, and positive working relationships with the industry’s top manufacturers.”
“By combining OMNi’s unique services with ours, we expect everyone will benefit,” says LinkUp chairman Karen Johnson. “OMNi’s customers should gain design and installation services previously not available, while LinkUp’s customers will have access to a distribution platform that offers both satellite and streaming.”
Although LinkUp’s main offices are in Northwest Florida, the company plans to integrate their current 24/7/365 customer support with the Network Operations Center in Englewood. The transition is expected to take three to six months to complete.
