PlayBox Technology has announced a key addition to its global partnership team with the appointment of VIDI as master distributor for the DACH region comprising Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

“We see this partnership as a perfect marriage,” said PlayBox Technology president, Don Ash. “We have a large number of clients in the DACH Region who will benefit from the local support VIDI can offer as well as local access to the latest software versions and hardware upgrades. We identified an opportunity to offer PlayBox Technology customers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland exclusive deals to upgrade their current systems. This campaign together with the high level of personal service provided by VIDI proved highly successful and has attracted a large number of new clients to the PlayBox Technology brand.”

“We have partnered with PlayBox Technology for many years and are very pleased to have been promoted to the role of DACH region master distributor,” added VIDI managing director Jürgen Jahn. “PlayBox Technology is one of the broadcast industry’s great innovators and continues to lead the market in terms of IT-based channel branding and playout centred on AirBox Neo and the various Neo system modules. We are also seeing strong customer interest in the PlayBox Technology CloudAir offering both as a basis for fast start up ‘red-button’ channels and for long term applications such as cloud-based content archives and disaster recovery centres.”
