3d October 2016, Umeå – Codemill has set its sights on the Asian markets with India as the first destination. Codemill will be representing its partner Vidispine in the AWS media summit to showcase the Vidispine platform offerings as well as Codemill’s own HTML5 player - Accurate Player. Codemill’s recently hired employee Dinesh Damodaran who hails from India, will travel for the event. The three city pan-Indian event is expected to see the biggest national and regional broadcasters in attendance.

Speaking on the decision to participate, Rickard Lönneborg – CEO, Codemill observed, “It is my vision to make Codemill a global premium development partner. We have met with good success in acquiring customers on both sides of the Atlantic, it is now time to look eastwards. In appointing international team members like Dinesh we believe we can bridge the cultural gap of working with Asian customers. We have also demonstrated our capability to build enterprise grade products like the Accurate Player and hope to be widely recognized as a premium development partner going forward. We are thankful to our partner Vidispine for giving us the opportunity to participate at the AWS Media Summit in India.”

Dinesh who works in the Sales & Business Development function added, “I am happy to be given the chance to showcase cutting edge Swedish video technology to the Indian market. The Indian media industry is massive given the large number of regional and national players operating in the market. I see the technology and solutions we offer as a strong complement to the individual needs of customers here. Whether clients need customized MAM systems, a licensed product like the Accurate Player or development services, Codemill with its Vidispine association is best equipped to deliver this solution.”

Codemill will look to follow up on its success from the recently concluded IBC Event in Amsterdam where it received a lot of interest in the Accurate player. The enquiries received from a few Indian Broadcasters who attended the event in Amsterdam, encouraged Codemill and Vidispine to participate in the AWS Media Summit in India. The company will also take the opportunity to follow up with the enquiries received from IBC.

Dinesh will demo Vidispine, Vidixplore and Accurate player at the summit and will meet with potential customers to understand and capture their requirements.

At Codemill, as with any other Swedish workplace, we love our fika (coffee break), team stand-ups, our whiteboards and post-its when we are brainstorming and trying to come up with solutions or ideas. Sure, we have embraced a host of tools and services to make our workplace collaboration easier and accessible from anywhere. However, it is my experience that many of these tools with a few exceptions were always used asynchronously. Earlier this week we got a chance to test some of these tools and a few new ones.
