      Polar Graphics will provide additional sales support, channel management, and business development throughout the region and, will work with the current FocalPoint Server reseller channel.

      Polar Graphics has a long history of providing representation and distribution for manufacturers in the European broadcast, TV, and film industries. When asked about the partnership, Ken Bell, CEO of FocalPoint Server said;

      ”Importantly, FocalPoint complements the existing product line Polar Graphics represents, and fits perfectly into their sales and marketing strategy. Peter and his team are very well established and have an excellent reputation in the market place so, we are looking forward to a very successful partnership”

      Peter Rowsell, Managing Director of Polar Graphics, said;

      “We are excited to work with Ken and his team from FocalPoint Server. I have known Ken and Kevin for many years and have the utmost respect for them and their team. They make a superb and stable product that is used by many top end broadcasters around the world.  We are planning on working closely with FocalPoint Server in order to gain greater traction within the European market.”

      About Focal Point Server:

      FocalPoint Server came out of the “fires “of the London Olympics 2012. Its task was to manage existing users and the extra 200 freelancers who were not familiar with company work practices.

      The key was to make it simple so people would use it.

      Come and see FocalPoint server on Booth No. 7.J15W at IBC 2017, the largest media and entertainment show in Europe.

      What is FocalPoint Server Software?

      Launch your graphics or editing application through our gateway/simple interface that allows users to collaborate in the Cloud, WAN or LAN, and find their files in three clicks. We track projects from ingest to archive, ensuring correct naming of projects, bins and their storage location. We set project preferences for each job, with version control. This filtering or traffic light approach to managing users increases workflow efficiency and collaboration. As the number of users and department’s increase, the importance of this approach grows exponentially. Remote working via the Cloud reduces the cost of hotel, space and associated expenses while ensuring flexible working and collaboration.
