Mediability AS was founded in the summer of 2016 when Avit-Systems, Mediateket and Video 4 were gathered into one group with Atlantis Vest, the Norwegian Rieber family’s investment company, and the founders of Mediateket AS, Gro Setereng and Jørgen Scheel, as the majority owners, along with other key employees in the group.
All companies have been providers of equipment, solutions and services to the Scandinavian media production market for years. The three combined represented one of the largest vendors within media production solutions in Scandinavia, with a total revenue of approximately NOK 300 mill in 2015.
In Fall 2016, former Video4 and AVIT-Systems were merged in all Scandinavian countries, under the new names; Mediability Norway, Mediability Sweden and Mediability Denmark. Mediateket remained as a separate unit and became a purebred independent consultancy company, changing its name to Mediateket Consulting. Early 2017, Mediability Services, a separate unit focusing on running various services, was established.
