Arkona Technologies appoints GTC as channel partner for Portugal
Arkona has appointed broadcast and media technology integrator GTC as its channel partner in Portugal.
GTC provides a complement of end-to-end services, from choosing and supplying the right technology for each workflow to installing and maintaining state-of-the-art broadcasting and multimedia infrastructures. The company’s team of technical personnel are trained to implement and support all phases of any media project.
Under the leadership of CEO Paulo Lima, GTC will be responsible for sales, marketing, training and service for Arkona’s recently released Blade//runner portfolio, which provides a wide variety of IP core infrastructure tools for audio/video routing, compression, processing and multi-viewing.
Lima stated: “GTC’s long-term relationships with best-of-breed technology companies has allowed us to provide our customers value that goes beyond the products these companies offer individually.”
“Arkona is the missing link GTC was seeking. We can now accomplish our technology differentiation strategy goal, and our customers will be able to distinguish themselves from the competition and provide sustainable, future-proof services others cannot.”
Erling Hedkvist, sales & business development manager for Arkona, said: “In GTC we have found the perfect partner with extensive experience in supplying and supporting high-end broadcast clients in the Portuguese market. Together with Paulo and his team, we are excited to offer technology-as-a-service with our Blade//runner platform.”
GTC will cover all of Portugal out of offices in Lisbon and Porto.
