Vizrt, the provider of software-defined visual storytelling tools, has announced the creation of an Enterprise Media Asset Management (MAM) Business Unit for customers of its flagship MAM system, Viz One.
Used by many of the world’s biggest broadcasters and media organisations, Viz One is a critical, and central piece in media workflows and infrastructure. To better serve its MAM customers, maximise value, and deliver tailored MAM solutions based on needs, Vizrt has formed the Enterprise MAM Business Unit.
“In conversations with our customers, we’ve determined they want an open, reliable platform to operate and scale themselves. They also want an expert team on hand, that understand the business, the platform, the customers’ needs and act as trusted advisors to solve challenges. With the formation of this business unit, and the range of talent behind it, run by Jochen, I am excited to see how this investment will deliver an outstanding customer experience,” remarks Daniel Nergård, Chief Revenue Officer at Vizrt Group.
Harnessing Vizrt’s top MAM talent across the organisation, the Enterprise MAM Business Unit combines research and development, Professional Services, Support, and Commercial into one team to improve efficiency, drive collaboration and ignite innovation through increased collaboration.
The Enterprise Media Asset Management business unit will provide an end-to-end service, from sales through to end-user training, to the world’s largest broadcasters and media companies. The team will be led by Jochen Bergdolt, whose 20-year experience in the industry and technical knowledge makes him a valuable addition to the team. In fact, half of Bergdolt’s career was spent at Vizrt.
He began as a Senior Solutions Architect successfully navigating MAM deliveries for important international customers. Bergdolt worked his way up to become the Head of MAM Sales Operations SEMEA and ultimately the Director of Product Management, Infrastructure at Vizrt before diversifying his experience in other ventures, including consulting for start-ups. Now back at Vizrt to unite the Enterprise MAM team, Bergdolt is known by many and well suited to hit the ground running to optimise and elevate Viz One for customers.
“The Enterprise MAM business is about the product and the people. Viz One has already earned the reputation of running some of the most sophisticated media workflows globally, but with a focused, aligned and dedicated team, I am certain we will deliver an unprecedented customer-centric service,” says Jochen Bergdolt, Head of Business Unit, Enterprise MAM at Vizrt Group.
