Matrox Video Products Group Appoints Daniel Skaler Int. for Australia(September 06, 2001)
"Matrox is determined to better serve its customers in Australia and New Zealand," said Spiro Plagakis, Matrox vice president of sales and marketing. "These two measures will ensure this region receives the attention and resources it deserves."
Originally from Australia, Daniel Skaler has worked in Matrox's UK office and represented the company throughout the UK, Eastern Europe & the Middle East. He now brings his wealth of experience from the European broadcast & NLE markets back home to Australia.
Focal Point Computing has created a digital video division, headed by director Andrew Tilly, to satisfy the growing demand for high-performance, cost-effective video editing solutions. The new division will target the roadcast and professional non-linear editing markets as well as the quickly growing prosumer market segment. As an important first staff placement, Tilly has announced the employment of Ian Andes as a digital video product manger. Andes will move to Focal Point after having spent five years as a product specialist with the Matrox Video Products Group in Montreal, Canada.
"Our initial efforts will build the Matrox brand by showcasing the superior nature of the company's products in a series of roadshows and creating a training program for dealers so they can continue to offer first class service for Matrox video products," said Tilly.
Matrox Video Products Group is already working closely with Focal Point to establish Matrox as a major force in Australia's video editing community.
The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) trade show in July 2001 was an opportunity to strengthen the Matrox brand in Australia.
The show proved very successful for Matrox, earning the company positive feedback from dealers and end users alike.
