SAN DIEGO, USA: VMIX, a leading US online video platform provider, announced the opening of offices in the United Kingdom as part of the company’s strategy to expand internationally.
VMIX (UK) Ltd will focus on business development and market penetration in the region. Based in Glasgow, Scotland, with a second office in London, England, the division will include a local sales and marketing team.
President and CEO of VMIX Pat Burns said the launch of VMIX UK is the first stage in the San Diego-based company’s plan to establish itself as a global provider and extend the reach of its Platform as a Service (PaaS) solutions for enterprise-grade online video.
“This is a well-considered step in our international growth plan,” said Burns. “Establishing a presence in the UK allows us to build personal relationships with our European-based clients and partners, and provides critical insight into the growing online-video integration market there.”
Burns noted that an extension of the VMIX platform will follow in coming months that includes local video storage and processing to meet the needs of European clients.
The UK office will be headed by Brian Keating as Director of VMIX (UK) ltd. Keating has substantial experience working for multi-national companies like Apple, Newbridge Networks and Alcatel. As the founder and CEO of Thirdspace, he built up the broadband TV solutions company before it was acquired by Alcatel in 2003.
