Vela and Videodata Sign Brazilian Partnership Agreement at IBC
Vela Expands Global Presence with Expansion of Reseller Partners
September 26, 2019 (Newswire.com) -
Vela, the leading provider of compliance monitoring and smart logging solutions, today announced that an agreement was reached last week at IBC-2019 with Videodata, the leading Brazilian broadcast-technology System Integrator - making Videodata Vela’s premier Brazilian distributor.
Vela and Videodata have each served the broadcast market for 25 years and recognize many synergies working together. Videodata expands Vela’s reach and reduces the overall price paid by customers in the region by significantly reducing import taxes through integration of Vela software on hardware manufactured in-country. Videodata will provide Vela front-line technical support, making them a true value-added partner by catering to customers and answering Vela support calls in Portuguese.
Videodata CEO Rosalvo Carvalho commented, “After evaluating Vela’s solution, our team is convinced it is the most powerful, feature-rich, forward-looking, intuitive and affordable solution available – and it was important that Videodata bring this technology to Brazil.”
"Videodata’s outstanding reputation and success supporting Brazil’s Broadcast and Telecom markets for so long, made them our first choice of partners in the region and Vela is proud of this winning alliance”, said Ken Rubin, Vela Vice President of Worldwide Sales.
This reseller appointment comes on the heels of Vela’s strongest growth year with over 200 broadcasters deploying about 2,000 channels, as Vela has emerged with the strongest Volicon-replacement solutions available.
Vela’s Luna system has many advanced features that match those of Volicon at a lower price... while their flagship Encompass has capabilities that far exceed Volicon... both coming with Vela’s absolute commitment to customer success.
Vela’s rapid growth has not come without help from their partners… over the past 6 months, Vela has grown its premier channel worldwide with the addition of some of the world’s best broadcast resellers, including: HVS - Heartland Video Systems, Digital Glue, Key Code Media, and Trock Media Solutions in the US, Applied Electronics in Canada, Visualdis in France, Excelencia in Mexico, Visuals in Switzerland, Periactes in Belgium, CVE - Communication Video Engineering in Italy, AVCOM in Israel, Centrax in South Africa, and now Videodata in Brazil.
Vela’s direct sales staff has more than doubled during the same timeframe and the team continues to grow with immediate openings for a Southeast US Sales Director and both Sales and Engineering hires in EMEA.
