Qvest Media has been named World Wide Channel Partner by Avid, at its Global Sales Conference in Los Angeles.

The award confirms Qvest Media's strategy of co-operating with leading manufacturers like Avid to jointly implement pioneering technology projects in areas such as broadcast, media and telecommunication. Konstantin Knauf, Managing Director at Qvest Media in Singapore, accepted the award on behalf of the whole Qvest Media Group in Los Angeles.

"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," Konstantin Knauf said. "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."

One of the latest major projects for both companies is that of equipping the new broadcasting centre of MediaCorp in Singapore. One of the most modern broadcast end-to-end infrastructures in which Avid solutions play a central role in Qvest Media's technology concept is currently being developed there. At the same time, Qvest Media also relies on Avid's product portfolio in other international projects.

Some of the projects the companies co-operate on include 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, as well as the modernisation of the system architecture for Dubai TV and Al Jazeera.

In the growing business area of Managed Services, Qvest Media was 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. The company also extended its Avid sales quantity in commercial business and paved the way for the integration of, 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 Live Video Cloud and the associated features.

The partnership between Avid and Qvest Media has existed since 2001 and has been gradually stepped up throughout the years. The training program has been expanded steadily, meaning that Qvest Media today employs a large team of Avid-certified ACSR specialists which promotes the sales, integration and service activities of Qvest Media internationally.
