Visualdis Becomes Official European Distributor of Vela

Vela and Visualdis Form Indispensable Partnership to Support the Broadcast Market

​Vela today announced announced that Visualdis, a subsidiary of the Infodis group, has signed on as the exclusive distributor for all the products of Vela, the world leader of broadcast compliance logging and monitoring solutions across the French-speaking world (France, Belgium, Switzerland, French-speaking Africa).

Vela's solutions cover continuous signal monitoring, capture, video clipping, audio verification, as well as image analysis and competitive analysis tools. Vela's products perfectly meet the requirements of regulators and the simplified user interface allows users to visualize images, edit them, and do searches based on the metadata of the recorded media.

Visualdis will promote, sell and provide technical support of the Vela product line. The Visualdis teams are being trained to ensure their customers receive local support in French and an optimal migration to the new Vela solutions. Vela and Visualdis have both been serving the broadcast market worldwide for over 24 years, and combined, become an indispensable partnership team in the broadcast market. Visualdis' customers value its significant technical and commercial expertise in this field, which led the company to partner with Vela after having considered and evaluated three major players in this field. This new partnership replaces the previous solution Volicon, which has recently been withdrawn from the market by its owner Verizon.

"The objective of this partnership with Vela is to ensure continuity to our customers equipped with a Volicon logging solution, and rely on our leadership in this market to develop new opportunities," said Walid ABI Chahla, managing director, Visualdis.

"Vela is very proud to be associated with a company with an extremely strong and longstanding reputation in the broadcast market in France. The Vela and Visualdis collaboration will be a winning partnership throughout the French-speaking world. We rely on the commercial and technical expertise of Visualdis for a quick implementation of our brand in the countries represented," said Gerry Boucher, director of international development at Vela.

Vela and Visualdis launched their collaboration at NAB 2019 Show, the world's largest audiovisual exhibition.
