Their captioning products extend the reach of content to a greater viewership through language translation and for the hearing impaired community. The company boasts a customer list which reads as a “who’s who” of the media sector, including ABC/Disney, the BBC, Deluxe, ESPN, Sky, Technicolor, Turner, and many others. The company also has offices in New Zealand, and in the US.

Sam Pemberton, Chief Executive Officer of Softel added: “Selling a business is never easy, especially one for which I care very deeply. Which is why we are delighted to have found a partner in Miranda Technologies who share our goals, intimately understand our market and who bring so much know-how to the table.”
