Wohler Technologies is acquiring Europa Australia Pty Ltd, a closed captioning and data insertion company led by industry pioneer Elio Deluca.

Upon completion of the deal, Wohler will boast the only platform-based closed captioning system capable of supporting all global standards.

"Europa Australia is known for its ability to provide cost-effective solutions customized to the specific needs of each broadcast client," said Carl Dempsey, Wohler president and CEO. "The purchase of Europa Australia positions Wohler as a premier provider of closed-captioning and data control solutions. Through our new relationship with Elio and the Europa Australia engineering team, we will be equipped to respond to the development of closed-captioning standards in any country. This is a fantastic add-on to our existing talented engineering team. It is our ambition to be an extension of our clients' engineering resources and we can only do this is if we invest in the right talent and technology."

Europa Australia was established in 1996. Its closed-captioning processing technology developed by Europa Australia is compliant with CEA-608/708, the U.S. closed-captioning standard, and with OP:47, the Australian closed-captioning standard.

The Europa Australia technology is also available to other manufacturers who need to incorporate closed-captioning and extended data service solutions into their systems.
