ES Broadcast has been awarded Grass Valley’s We Reach for Greatness EMEA Partner Growth Leader Award for 2018/19. Presented at Grass Valley’s channel partner meeting at IBC 2019 in Amsterdam, the award recognises the outstanding multi-million pound growth achieved by ES Broadcast in FY 2018/19.

Ben Murphy, Managing Director of ES Broadcast, said: “The Grass Valley award underlines the continuing importance of our partnership to our sales, systems and hire businesses. The success of the last 12 months and more demonstrates that Grass Valley solutions are a perfect fit for a broad spectrum of our clients.”

Grass Valley products key part of systems integration offering

ES Broadcast has completed several high-profile systems integration projects that have incorporated Grass Valley technology since the company’s SI division was formally founded in September 2017. NV-8144 video routers were included in five OB trucks built for horse-racing broadcast services provider RaceTech.

Live events specialist Creative Technology chose Korona UHD vision mixers for two portable production units, while OB provider Telegenic opted for 6-ME Kahuna vision mixers and NV8576 576×1152 video routers in each of two OB units which ES Broadcast upgraded.

ES Broadcast places large Grass Valley order to meet 2020 commitments

And, shortly after receiving the Grass Valley award, ES Broadcast agreed to purchase 151 LDX 86N UHD camera channels, as well as 15 Kahuna UHD vision mixers, to meet commitments for forthcoming major sporting events in 2020 – as well as further expanding the already sizeable UHD portfolio of its hire division.

Rene Hueber, Strategic Channel Director, EMEA for Grass Valley, said: “The expert knowledge of the ES Broadcast team and the behaviours they exhibit are precisely what we look for in our channel partners. I am delighted to see their efforts rewarded with this award and am confident our partnership will continue to grow in the future.”
