MGI partners with Gallery Sienna
QATAR: Media Group International (MGI) has signed a partnership agreement with Gallery Sienna. As the official Sienna distribution partners, MGI will offer the manufacturer’s workflow solutions for news, sport, live event and multi-camera television production to its broadcast customers.
‘As always at MGI, we’re committed to bringing the very latest technology and products to our customers and Gallery’s Sienna products absolutely fit this brief,’ said MGI sales manager, Roger Barton. Gallery offers the postproduction, film, music, TV and broadcast industries a portfolio of more than 50 software and hardware products and numerous international broadcasters have built production workflows based around Sienna.
As part of the new relationship, MGI recently sent its senior solutions architects Jim White and Tyrone Donnelly on a week-long Sienna training programme in London. This was designed to give MGI self-sufficiency in implementing and supporting Sienna systems and affords MGI the Approved Sienna Systems Integrator status.
‘It is extremely important nowadays that you’re able to back up your sales with integration services and after sales support locally,’ noted Mr Barton. ‘This is why we always invest in training prior to signing partnership agreements, so we can confidently support our partners.’
‘We are delighted that MGI has made a strong commitment to Sienna, and MGI’s experience and reach will make Sienna accessible to a new audience in the Gulf region,’ added Gallery Sienna CTO Mark Gilbert. ‘Local support is fundamental to our vision, so MGI’s formally trained Sienna engineers are a welcome addition.’
