LiveU acquires channel partner PLM to strengthen its presence in Australia, New Zealand and Pacific Islands
LiveU has recently announced the acquisition of its longstanding channel partner, Pacific Live Media (PLM) as part of its strategy to get closer to its customers in key markets.
Chris Dredge, PLM’s Managing Director, has been representing LiveU and its solutions for many years, supporting leading broadcasters, sports organizations, production companies and online media in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.
The announcement follows last year’s acquisition of LiveU UK partner Garland Partners Limited as the Company increases its direct presence in specific regions.
Samuel Wasserman, LiveU’s CEO and co-founder, said, “We’re delighted to welcome Chris Dredge and the PLM team into the LiveU family. PLM has excelled in sales, service and support of LiveU’s customers in the region. With his deep technological knowhow and passion for LiveU, Chris has played a central role in growing our business. Our joint customers are some of the most innovative adopters of our cloud-based remote production workflows worldwide. This move will help us to maximize our business potential and expand our end-to-end offerings as live events come back in full after the pandemic, facilitated by the tremendous local service and support.”
Chris Dredge, Managing Director and Founder, PLM, “We are truly excited to join LiveU! LiveU’s best-in-class solutions have been the main growth engine for our company and coming together as one entity is the natural next step. LiveU’s technology delivers on so many levels and, as a trusted partner, we have taken great pleasure in developing innovative workflows that deliver increased production efficiency as well as a superb viewing experience. We can’t wait to see what else we can do to help customers with their live events, officially part of LiveU.”
