Elite Multimedia Productions
(EMP), a Nashville-based professional sound, lighting and video company, recently completed the major acquisition of live production equipment from TMB
to accommodate the company's expected growth in 2014.
With a number of large acts already on board for the 2014 year, including American Country Music's 2013 Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan, EMP purchased five ProPower Lighting Distros, 20 ProPlex Data Distribution splitters, and miles of ProPlex cable outfitted with Neutrik's Ethercon connectors to handle the increased workload.
"Since moving our operation to Nashville earlier this year, we've experienced an influx of touring projects," said Tom Wilson, vice president of event production for Elite. "We expect that growth to continue throughout the year, so we are making the necessary investments today to ensure we exceed our clients' expectations."
In addition to providing full-service touring support to Luke Bryan in 2014, EMP is slated to work with a number of other well-known acts, including Dream Theater, Darius Rucker, Thompson Square, Rodney Atkins and Big Daddy Weave. The equipment purchase from TMB, one of the most respected product and service companies in the entertainment production and staging industries, was the first of several EMP expects to make prior to the end of the year.
"Throughout the years, we've received exceptional customer service from TMB, which, along with their high-quality, rugged products, is a primary reason we often look to them when stocking up for upcoming tours and events," Wilson stated. "The TMB team knows what works best for all situations and bends over backwards to meet our requests."
Elite Multimedia Productions provides turn-key services to many popular recording artists, as well as for special events across the U.S. For TMB, working with high-profile and professional companies such as EMP is recognition of the company's unwavering commitment to its customers.
"We take tremendous pride in putting together products and service second to none in the live entertainment industry," says Stephanie Kilburg, TMB Sales Manager. "Additionally, we've assembled a staff that is committed to making sure our customers understand their value to TMB. EMP has had a variety of successful projects in the past that we've enjoyed working on, so we weren't surprised to hear about the company's ongoing success and expanded operations in 2014."
