Arkona Technologies has partnered with Finnish company Pipeline Media, a systems integrator based in Helsinki.
The addition of Pipeline Media to the arkona channel network underscores the company’s global initiative to support regional markets with the most advanced technology supplied by knowledgeable and trusted professionals.
Wiggo Evensen, partner manager, arkona, explained: “Finland is an important market for arkona and Pipeline Media has earned an impeccable reputation built on responsibility, quality and respect – qualities that mirror our own ethics.”

According to Keski-Loppi: “arkona’s Blade//runner is a welcome and flexible addition when designing multi-vendor production facilities. It’s easy to integrate and extremely scalable. Additionally, arkona’s interoperability with different control systems is a valuable complement to their architecture that results in more agile and multifunctional systems.”

They are already increasing the appeal of arkona solutions in Finland and we couldn’t be happier to partner with them.”
