AV Stumpfl Opens PIXERA Office in London
Wallern a.d. Trattnach (Austria), 2nd November 2023 – The growing international popularity of AV Stumpfl’s award-winning real-time media server platform, PIXERA, has led to the Austrian family business’s opening an additional office in London recently, which will be 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.
PIXERA executive director Harry Gladow comments on the new development: “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.”
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 realize prestigious international AV projects featuring advanced media server technology. “When PIXERA 1.0 was released in 2019, there was a lot of skepticism in the UK market as to whether the industry needed another approach to media server systems,” he says. “Four years later, the answer is a resounding YES, and I am looking forward to helping our fast-growing UK user community realize their full potential.”
