Founder Buys Back Pro Media

By Clive Young. The AV solutions provider returns to its roots.

Martinez, CA (April 11, 2019)—Prior owner Andrew Serb and a group of private partners made up of senior staff members have acquired Pro Media Audio & Video from Panasonic North America. Serb originally founded the company, which specializes in audiovisual solutions for the sports, live entertainment district, performing arts, corporate and transportation markets, 43 years ago.

Ted Leamy, Pro Media general manager, told Pro Sound News, “We now have the freedom to really grow the Pro Media business more than ever before. Building off of our rich history with high-end pro audio and our live production chops, we can now focus more on merging those technologies with today’s demands for video. Our future at Pro Media is focused on managing campuses and establishing enterprise standards to drive a broader audience experience—whether that’s at the office, a stadium, an airport or a performing arts center.

Pro Media clients include the Dallas Cowboys AT&T Stadium, Green Bay Packers Lambeau Field, San Francisco Giants, Stanford University, Oakland International Airport, Dodger Stadium, The Warfield Theatre, Atlanta Braves SunTrust Park, San Francisco International Airport, Santa Clara Convention Center and Colorado Rockies Coors Field.

In the spring of 1998, Pro Media merged with Bay Area-based sound company UltraSound, which provides audio systems for high-profile concert tours. In the decades that followed, the jointly run Pro Media UltraSound continued to address both markets, until in late 2016, when Serb sold Pro Media to Panasonic, retaining UltraSound, which he later sold to company management in June, 2018.

Pro Media Audio & Video will maintain its name, Pro Media. Headquarters are located in Denver, Colorado with operations and sales offices in Dallas, Texas and Martinez, CA.
