Nashville-based Uniguest unites Tripleplay with ONELAN to create digital signage and IPTV powerhouse

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Uniguest, a global cybersecurity technology specialist with a customer-centric approach in providing fully managed engagement technology solutions, announces the acquisition of UK-based Tripleplay, a market leader in the development of digital signage, IPTV, and video streaming solutions.

The Tripleplay acquisition complements the June 2018 addition of ONELAN, creating a global leader for IPTV, digital signage, and room booking solutions. Prior to the acquisition, Uniguest operated more than 35,000 secure kiosks and over 100,000 digital signs in more than 100 countries.

Tripleplay’s award-winning IPTV solution further advances ONELAN’s digital signage solution set to deliver live TV and video. With more than 5,000 worldwide server deployments and a global network of over 100 integration partners, Tripleplay significantly grows the customer base while expanding the Uniguest footprint across the globe into stadiums and arenas as well as banking and finance.

“With the successful acquisition and integration of the ONELAN business into our portfolio in 2018, we reviewed a number of providers who could offer complementary solutions which aligned with our core strategy to deliver digital engagement to the industries we operate in,” Uniguest CEO Jeff Hiscox said. 

“Tripleplay was by far the best solution in the market and fit this profile perfectly; we’re delighted to bring them under the Uniguest umbrella. By pairing Tripleplay with ONELAN, we are creating a powerhouse for the AV industry and are excited to start this journey. We believe this is a great outcome for our clients and employees and are very excited about our future together.”
