Following seven years of continued success in the global market, Edinburgh-based network IPTV equipment manufacturer Exterity, is now experiencing rapid growth on its home territory. To cope with demand, Exterity has appointed Ian Simpson as Channel Sales Manager for Scotland. Ian will focus on maintaining and growing Exterity’s Scottish partner portfolio, working hand in hand with them to target, deploy and manage IPTV solutions in the education, corporate and hospitality sectors.
Since 2001, Exterity has been deployed by more than 500 customers in over 17 countries, helping companies like Reuters, QVC and SAB Miller and educational establishments such as Matthew Boulton College and Lewisham College stream broadcast quality media via an IP network. Organisations across Scotland are now beginning to capitalise on the ability to turn an existing IP network into a complete IPTV solution using Exterity technology. For example, working with Forth Electrical Services (FES), Exterity has deployed a range of school TV systems as part of Private Finance Initiative (PFI) upgrades to educational institutions across Scotland.
“IPTV has really grown in popularity across Europe and the Middle East in recent years and we have a lot of customers in these regions. Scotland is now going through a similar period of growth in terms of IPTV pick-up, as companies competing on a global level take advantage of the business benefits to be gained from the technology,” commented Colin Farquhar, CEO, Exterity. “In Ian we have gained a highly experienced Channel Sales Manager who will offer our local partners the support they need as well as helping us grow in our home market.”
