Qvest Media Expands into Northern Europe

Qvest Media, a veteran systems integrator of broadcast and media technology, is expanding further into Europe. After recently adding locations in France and Switzerland, the company is establishing a new central hub for Northern Europe in Copenhagen. From there, a team managed by industry veteran Peter Thomsen will support the company’s future activities in the Nordic and the Baltic countries.

“Europe is an important economic region for us, with game-changing investments in the areas of digitization and media,” said Daniel Url, Managing Director of Qvest Media in Europe. “As a consultant and systems integrator specializing in the areas of broadcast, media and telecommunications, we operate globally on a technical level. We know, however, the importance of local presence to be able to assist our customers quickly and effectively.”

With more than 200 employees, Qvest Media supports companies around the world with a range of services that includes consulting, systems integration and service and support for customers such as TV, news and media networks, as well as telecommunications providers, sports organizations and content platform operators.

Building on its technological expertise, Qvest Media will also establish its new Managed Technology business division in Northern Europe. With Managed Technology, the company offers a service portfolio, tailored to media companies, to successively replace long-term technology investments with OpEx operational expenditure. By offering such valuable services as service provision and support for existing technology and system environments, cloud services, and infrastructure services such as IaaS or the technical operating of media platforms (PaaS), Qvest Media said it is enabling its customers to focus more on their creative core business.

As Managing Director, Peter Thomsen said that in the Nordic countries, a considerable demand exists for providers of professional ICT system solutions in the broadcast and media segment who can adapt and implement new trends in technology quickly. This applies both to the core media technology business and to areas such as consulting, systems integration, technology management and service.

“With Qvest Media, we’ll close this gap,” Thomsen said. Previously, Thomsen was Deputy Managing Director at the Danmon Systems Group A/S.

With a commercial portfolio of around 250,000 products as well as partnerships with nearly all the major manufactures from the media and IT industries, Qvest Media ranks among Europe’s largest trade and distribution houses for technology in the fields of Professional AV, IT and Broadcast.
