Qvest earns Avid Worldwide Channel Partner award
WORLD: Systems architect for IT and A/V solutions, Qvest Media, was given the Worldwide Channel Partner award at the recent Avid Global Sales Conference in Los Angeles. According to Avid, the award ‘confirms Qvest Media’s strategy of co-operating with leading manufacturers to jointly implement pioneering technology projects’. Konstantin Knauf, MD at Qvest Media in Singapore, accepted the award on behalf of the whole Qvest Media Group.
‘We are very pleased about the award. It first and foremost reflects the satisfaction of our customers, for whom we implement highly developed broadcast infrastructures, production and newsroom systems with Avid solutions,’ said Mr Knauf. ‘It is also proof of the successful partnership which our companies have developed over the years and which is today globally reflected in joint broadcast and media projects.’
Some of the recent projects that have helped Qvest earn the award include equipping the new broadcasting centre of MediaCorp in Singapore – where end-to-end infrastructures in which Avid solutions play a central role in Qvest Media’s concept are currently being developed, as well as renewing the German public broadcaster Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg in Berlin and Potsdam, the integration of a production platform for Bein Sports with more than 40 sports channels, and the modernisation of the system architecture for Dubai TV and Al Jazeera.
Qvest was also reportedly able to negotiate long-term contracts last year with a number of large TV channels and telco providers for the ongoing maintenance of Avid installations, as well as extended its Avid sales quantity in commercial business and paved the way for the integration of make.tv, a start-up investment of the business group, in Avid MediaCentral. Thanks to the plug-in specially designed for the integration, users of the Avid MediaCentral platform have access to the make.tv Live Video Cloud and the associated features.
The partnership between the two companies has existed since 2001 and has gradually increased throughout the years. Qvest Media today employs a large team of Avid-certified ACSR specialists which promotes the sales, integration and service activities of Qvest Media internationally.
