PSSI Global Services Acquire Brightlink HD

PSSI Global Services recently acquired Brightlink HD/Music City Satellite, LLC. The sale was made official as of Sept. 15.

PSSIWith the largest fleet of over 45 mobile satellite uplink trucks in North America, PSSI recently rolled out a plan to increase and upgrade its C-Band and multiplexing-capable trucks. PSSI helped pioneer the transmission protocols for at-home multi-channel productions and with the addition of Brightlink HD’s fleet, PSSI is even more capable of supporting these cutting-edge multi-channel transmission services.

Brightlink HD launched in 2005 to provide state-of-the-art transmission vehicles supporting live events to the broadcast networks. Among other assets, the acquisition includes a dual antenna 5.5 C-band / 2.4 Ku-band satellite uplink truck, one Ku-band satellite uplink truck with HD production capabilities, and a multi-purpose HD production vehicle.

“I look forward to combining my equipment and experience as an engineer to the PSSI team,” says John Bright, the founder of Brightlink HD. “I had entertained other opportunities, but with Rob Lamb’s and PSSI’s incredible standing in the industry, I knew that this would be a perfect fit. I would also like to thank all of my clients for the opportunity to be a part of some of their biggest broadcast events over the past decade. I look forward to my career with PSSI and working alongside its very talented engineers and support staff.”

Over the years, Brightlink HD has been able to encode signals for broadcast over fiber optic or via IP networks, and its trucks are equipped for HD video production as well as multichannel audio mixing. The company has worked with some renowned clients throughout the years, including Fox Sports, ESPN, CBS Sports, HBO Sports, TBS, TNT, Golf Channel, and more.

“We’re extremely excited to have John and his Brightlink HD trucks as a part of our company,” says Rob Lamb, CEO of PSSI Global Services. “We welcome John to our engineering team, and we know he will bring his great engineering expertise and talent to our company. On behalf of all of us at PSSI, I’d like to thank him for making this such a seamless transition.”
