Simplylive has appointed Chuck Silber as Chief Revenue Officer. In his role, he will be responsible for all revenue-generation strategy and execution, with an initial focus on growing Simplylive’s presence in the North American market. His duties will include creating and implementing the sales and marketing strategy, developing a distribution and reseller network – and ensuring that these initiatives are aligned to the overall company strategy. He will report directly to Managing Director Luc Doneux.
“Chuck is a seasoned sales and marketing leader with a proven track record for growing revenue as well as building and coaching world-class teams. Among many qualified candidates, Chuck stood out as the ideal person to help lead Simplylive through our next stage of growth. We are thrilled that he has joined our team,” said Simplylive founder and Managing Director Luc Doneux.
Silber has 25 years of experience driving multimillion-dollar revenue growth and building world-class sales and marketing organizations. Just prior to joining Simplylive, he was the Chief Operating Officer for NewTek, an industry leader in professional video production products whose revenue grew over 6X during his tenure. While at Newtek, Silber architected and implemented a world-wide distribution and channel program that resulted in a reseller network that is widely regarded as one of the strongest in the industry. Previously, he was the Vice President of Sales and Services, Americas for Avid Technology, a world leader in digital media creation tools for film, video, audio, and broadcast professionals.
“Although Simplylive is a relatively new company, it is run by an impressive team of industry veterans – all with strong pedigrees in the live sports production market; in fact, the core team has well over 100 years of combined experience in live tv,” said Silber. “The future-proof software technology they developed was architected from the ground-up to enable local, remote, and cloud-based production – and to work natively in baseband, IP, and hybrid video workflows. I believe this uniquely positions Simplylive solutions to disrupt traditional sports production workflows across all levels and segments of the market. I am excited to be a part of the team and look forward to contributing to the growth of the company.”
Cologne / Hong Kong, January 11th, 2018: Qvest Media, a world-leading systems architect and ICT integrator in the fields of broadcasting and media technology, and live production systems manufacturer Simplylive team up for a strategic sales partnership in several European countries. The Simplylive line-up will be available through a close partnership with Qvest Media in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, France, UK and Spain as well as in the MENA region.
Simplylive disrupts the live production business by combining easy-to-use control elements with powerful live production systems. The company’s all-in-one production system ViBox features highly versatile and intuitive touchscreen controls for all live production functions such as video and audio mixing, editing, replay, slow motion or live streaming. Since game controllers are common currency with millennials, the ViBox system comes with additional off-the-shelf Xbox One controllers complementing the touch controls. Aside from improving user interfaces and controls, Simplylive aims at raising the bar for live broadcasting production systems: At IBC 2017, the newcomer introduced the world’s first six-channel 4K slow motion server and all-in-one production system.
Major broadcasters like Canal+, BeIn sports, BBC or Fox Sports already benefit from Simplylive’s advanced technology, allowing them to dramatically cut the costs of live broadcasts while at the same time ensuring high product quality. Compared to traditional production hardware, Simplylive’s live production systems offer easier and more intuitive handling: A single operator can now carry out the same tasks that usually requires several operators. In addition, the ViBox all-in-one system is compatible with the widely-used jog/shuttle controls.
“We are happy that Simplylive placed their trust in us to jointly provide our customers with state-of-the-art live production technologies”, says Daniel Url, Managing Director of Qvest Media in Europe. “We are convinced that Simplylive’s intuitive user interface combined with affordable and compact live production systems is a true market changer”, Url adds.
Luc Doneux, Managing Director and company founder at Simplylive: “Qvest Media was our first choice when it came to finding a partner to introduce our innovative products to the sports and broadcast market. Their success as a systems architect confirms their decades of experience, hard work and dedication.“
Though only founded in Hong Kong in 2016 and thus relatively new to the business, Simplylive is run by a team of industry veterans. Luc Doneux has gathered longstanding industry experience before he started his own business with a team of software experts. Simplylive seeks to establish its brand across Europe and the MENA region by forging a strategic sales alliance with Qvest Media.
Under the label “Qvest Media Academy”, the Germany-based systems architect will offer training sessions on Simplylive’s portfolio for live operators in early 2018. There will be a roadshow in the GSA region and Nordics with hands-on sessions and live demos with the new products. Demo equipment is also available at the Qvest Media offices and the Simplylive product line-up is going to be available for rent as well.
