The increasing international popularity of AV Stumpfl’s real-time media server platform, PIXERA, recently prompted the Austrian family business to open an additional office in London exclusively dedicated to PIXERA.
With PIXERA having become a household name in high-end virtual production and general film production circles throughout 2023, in addition to its growing popularity in the field of live event touring and musical productions, the opening of a new office in the UK will come as little surprise to many AV professionals.
The vibrant creative scene in London in particular played an important part in the Austrian company’s decision to bolster the PIXERA presence in the UK.
Our local roots in Austria are very strong, but we have always had a global mindset with regards to our vision for the worldwide PIXERA community. Opening a new office in such a creative entertainment hotspot makes absolute sense, now that our user community has grown so much that we need the local presence to support our organic growth strategy in the UK, comments PIXERA executive director Harry Gladow.
The PIXERA office in Uxbridge, London, will be run by its new UK managing director and industry veteran, Craig Harrower.
For over a decade, Harrower has helped realise prestigious international AV projects featuring advanced media server technology.
When PIXERA 1.0 was released in 2019, there was a lot of scepticism in the UK market as to whether the industry really needed another approach to media server systems. Four years later, the answer is a resounding YES, and I am looking forward to helping our fast-growing UK user community realise their full potential, he says.
