Los Angeles, CA (July 9, 2019)—Live Media Group Holdings has announced the acquisition of TNDV: Television, Harb Production Services and Coastal Media Group, creating what the company refers to as “the largest mid-level, full-service live production facilities provider and company in the broadcast and live event industry.”
With the acquisitions, Live Mobile Group, an owned and operated division of Live Media Group Holdings, has created a consolidated company that launches with 18 mid-sized production hybrid units, plus additional smaller standalone production uplink units. The strategy more than triples Live Mobile Group's fleet of production and uplink trucks and expands the company's business and technical staff with a diverse group of live production, systems integration and event management experts.
The acquisitions were reportedly driven by Brad Sexton, president and CEO of Live Media Group Holdings. Sexton says that "all companies will continue to operate under their current business names for the time being," citing the strength of their brands, expert engineering execution and professional reputations.
Live Mobile Group is a full-service, mid-sized truck provider for sports, entertainment and music, offering mid-sized 38-ft. to 42-ft. hybrid expando production and transmission units.
TNDV provides 38-ft. to 53-ft. mobile production and audio facilities, as well as production and secondary services for broadcast television, live entertainment, and AV-related productions including entertainment, corporate, worship and higher education.

Live Media Group Holdings will retain the staff, facilities and structure of all organizations with Los Angeles serving as a west coast production and truck operation. There are plans to relocate its corporate operations to TNDV's headquarters in Nashville. The Harb Production Services facility in Knoxville, TN will serve as a truck operations and integration facility.
