Key Code Media Acquires Access A/V

Broadcast, postproduction, and audiovisual systems integrator Key Code Media is acquiring New England-based video and audio systems integrator Access AV, the company announced. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

With coverage in New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island, Access A/V will operate as a new location of Key Code Media, maintaining its existing team. Access A/V will also add additional engineers, project management, and operation staff with large integration experience that will help customers nationwide.

Access A/V has designed and built more than 1,000 media production systems in city halls, universities, public schools, and community centers in New England, along with approximately 300 public access control rooms and studios.

“The goal is to provide clients a one-stop business for production equipment and consultation needs, from building production stages and studios, to training and managing complex file-based post-production systems. Access AV is known in New England for providing service excellence, which complements Key Code Media’s industry leadership,” said Mike Cavanagh, president and owner of Key Code.

The acquisition helps Key Code create a broadcast, postproduction, audio, lighting, and AV integration company with unmatched technical support, design, and sales resources, the company said. Current clients include Comcast, universities such as Harvard, Dartmouth, Brown, Emerson, Boston Children’s Hospital and a majority of city government municipalities throughout the region.

Access A/V, founded in 2005, has become an invaluable regional resource, supporting a line card of more than 110 manufacturers, with local inventory, product specialists, a showroom, and more than 150 years of combined experience with design, installation and support.

Key Code New England will now have experienced nationwide engineers with deep technical experience supporting a broader range of solutions and a line card of more than 400 product lines.
