BEHIND POWERFUL PRODUCTION

The foundations of today’s NEP Australia were laid 30 years ago, in a vastly different era for the television industry. While technology has changed broadcasting in ways hardly imaginable then, our core mission remains: we bring our clients’ content to life on any platform using the team, know-how and production resources that set both Australian and global standards.

Our history, clients, projects and ownership evidence steadfast industry confidence. We began in 1988 as Hoyt’s Television, providing outsourced studio, outside broadcast and post production services for Australian horse racing. When the Ten Network looked to make more efficient use of its outside broadcast fleet, we acquired those assets in 1995, whereupon Ten became a shareholder and the company was renamed Global Television. Underscoring the value we provide, the Nine Network joined Ten as a shareholder four years later. Leading private equity firm Catalyst Media Services acquired Global Television in 2006, supporting the business through considerable expansion and development and leading to NEP Group Inc’s purchase in early 2014.

Along the way, our company has consistently demonstrated the ability to meet specific market needs and scored many world- and Australia-firsts:
