Sheffield-based outside broadcast company Televideo Ceases to trade with more than 800 items up for sale

Posted: 14/12/2023

More than 800 items from Sheffield-based outside broadcasting company Televideo will be available in a two-day live streamed auction on December 19 and 20, as the company ceases to trade.

Televideo has been involved in the outside broadcast and production industry for over 47 years. The company has worked with several leading broadcasting clients including the BBC, Sky Sports, Netflix, Channel 4, Channel 5, BT Sport, and Eurosport.

Management of the upcoming sale involves a three-way partnership between Walker Singleton, Hickman Shearer and CA Global Partners. Each are specialists in management and disposal of assets.

They will be conducting a live and online auction of a selection of more 800 pieces of high quality and outside broadcast and TV production equipment on behalf of Hart Shaw – the administrators of Televideo Limited (in Administration) and equipment lessors.

Highlights of the assets range from outside broadcast trailers and rigid trucks to Sony and Panasonic camera channels, Vinten and Sachtler grip, EVS video servers and more.

The outside Broadcast units and monitoring including three outside broadcast trucks, a satellite uplink van and OB tender will be sold by negotiated sale and are available now via Hickman Shearer.

While the equipment will be available through an online and onsite auction over a two-day period, beginning on Tuesday, December 19, 2023. The catalogue of assets is now online, and items will be available to view onsite prior to the public auction – all the lots can be view here.

Stephen Jones, director at Walker Singleton, said: “The loss of any company like this is blow to the industry, as well as the local community, but by enabling the assets of the company to be bought at auction

“We hope to provide others both local and around the world with the opportunity to buy high quality equipment at a significant discount on the new price.”

Tim Chapman, managing director of Hickman Shearer, said: “This sale builds on the team’s significant expertise and knowledge of the broadcasting sector and is already attracting an extensive audience of prospective buyers. Given the circumstances, it is good to be able to redistribute this equipment back into the broadcast industry for use at yet more memorable events.”

Dan Main, director of CA Global Partners added: “We frequently see the positive impact sales of this sort of equipment can have on emerging businesses, and we know the equipment we sell from the closure of Televideo will be no exception.”
