SVG Europe is please to announce that The Hego Group has signed on as its latest Gold Sponsor. The Hego Group provides the broadcast and sports industries with the full end-to-end capability to create and enhance live production content. With over four decades of production experience behind it and a portfolio of industry leading production tools, the Hego Group offers a unique perspective for the industry.
Since being formed in 1969, Hego has established itself a highly proven reputation in the production of live events. From its modest beginnings in the early 1970s, Hego began in providing electro-mechanical timing devices for sports events, as well as developing one of the first ever timing clocks for live TV. Over the decades, Hego has grown in expertise, scale and technical ability to take on some of the most demanding timing and sports information system needs for major international tournaments such as the Olympics, Formula 1 and many more.
In more recent years, as a natural extension to its live sports data handling abilities, Hego has expanded its portfolio to include a range of world-class broadcast graphics products. These industry leading software tools, combined with Hego’s continued live production services on over 2,000 events annually, puts the company in a very unique position. Firstly, it is able to feedback improvements and refinements captured on its own productions directly into the product development cycle, to make the products even more robust and better tailored for live production needs. Secondly, it has helped to make Hego production staff “master craftsmen” in using these tools, enabling the company to confidently take on the most challenging of live TV graphics productions, delivering outstanding results that are always on time.
Today, Hego is a highly respected full-service provider to both the broadcast and sports industries, offering turn-key solutions based upon world-leading products, extensive live production experience, data integration skills, and above all, a commitment and drive to meet the high expectations and tight deadlines of live TV.

Its is headquartered in Stockholm and has subsidiaries in Norway, Denmark, Finland, Czech Republic, Slovak Republic, Spain, UK and Chile. “We are able to work for clients globally and are always open to explore new partnerships with other technology and production services companies,” it concludes.
