Partnering with them is a testament to our commitment to developing this market.
Emeryville, CA (PRWEB) October 4, 2007
Media Publisher, Inc., the leader in Enterprise Video Communications (EVC), today announced it has partnered with London-based Albany Creative Ltd, a business to business solutions provider of video communications, corporate event management and multimedia production.
The partnership will enable Media Publisher to more effectively meet the region's increasing need for a complete software solution that centrally manages the video communications lifecycle.
"Through a combination of customer feedback and market research, it's becoming very clear that EVC is the newest growth sector in our industry," said Graham Blackstock, Managing Director, Albany Creative Ltd. "Teaming with Media Publisher to add their software and consulting services to our arsenal will help further enhance and differentiate the integrated EVC solutions we can offer our customers."
Founded in June of this year, Media Publisher's UK office was established to further expand its customer base throughout Europe. Teaming with London-based Albany Creative will instantly place additional resources in the field for Media Publisher and significantly extend the company's rapidly growing presence across the region.
"Albany Creative offers not only a rich history in the video space, but also a keen understanding of the needs of our European customers," said Brian Haynes, Director of EMEA of Media Publisher. "Partnering with them is a testament to our commitment to developing this market."
Media Publisher is seeing growing momentum in EVC in a number of vertical industries in Europe, and is focusing primarily on the finance, banking and insurance (FBI) sectors. The significant number of knowledge workers, coupled with the need to reach geographically dispersed customers, has resulted in the rapid adoption of enterprise video communications solutions by financial institutions.
Industry-leading early adopters of video technology include Media Publisher customers BBVA of Spain and Denmark-based Jyske Bank.
