Apogee Acquires Campus Televideo -- Becomes Higher Education's Largest ResNet and Video Solutions Provider

AUSTIN, TX and STAMFORD, CT--(Marketwired - Sep 3, 2015) - Apogee, higher education's largest provider of residential network (ResNet) services, announced today that it has acquired Campus Televideo (CTV), the undisputed leader in higher education video services.

Apogee's acquisition of CTV brings together the two largest providers in ResNet and video solutions respectively, resulting in a new combined entity that will offer the most comprehensive and advanced networking and video services available in higher education today. Together, Apogee and CTV combine almost five decades of experience in serving the higher education community. Apogee will meld its proven track record and technology leadership in higher education networks with CTV's video solutions to provide a one-stop shop for all ResNet and video solutions.

CTV, now a division of Apogee, takes the important next step to transition ownership from a venture capital-funded company to a privately held company whose sole focus is higher education, allowing CTV to significantly generate more value for its university customers and industry partners. It will further leverage Apogee's resources and innovations for hundreds of colleges and universities with even higher levels of personalized service, cutting edge technology, and flexible options to meet their unique needs.

"Apogee's acquisition of CTV is a significant milestone and a proud moment for both companies. Our new combined entity expands our successful portfolio and brands us as the undisputed leader in the higher education technology landscape," said Chuck Brady, chief executive officer of Apogee. "Now, more than ever, as the lines blur between WiFi, data networking and video delivery, colleges and universities can count on Apogee's team of experts to help them navigate and stay ahead technologically, bolster their competitive advantage and achieve greater student satisfaction and retention."

Apogee and CTV are committed to a smooth integration, with day-to-day operations, current and pending projects to continue as usual for all of Apogee and CTV clients.
