August 20, 2008
Front Porch Digital has named LineUp Engenharia Electronica Co as its Latin American distributor of the year. Based in Sao Paulo, Brazil, LineUp achieved the highest volume of Front Porch sales in Latin America for 2007.
"Front Porch Digital recently has achieved tremendous sales growth in Latin America," said Pablo Miliani, Front Porch Digital vice president, Latin American sales. "LineUp's expertise and hard work have contributed to our success throughout the region, but especially in Brazil, where the government has dictated an aggressive HD transition program. The LineUp team has been able time and again to demonstrate to broadcasters what a good time this is to implement content storage management solutions, bringing about new and efficient workflows. This award recognizes their critical contribution."
Founded in 1990 by Brazilian broadcast engineers with an extensive professional track record, LineUp was one of the first companies of its kind to serve Brazil's broadcast industry. Today LineUp specializes in engineering support, maintenance and consulting; systems integration; and products and solution sales. Recent sales of systems from the Front Porch Digital DIVA product line to ESPN Brazil and TV Record were made in association with LineUp.
"Like Front Porch, we pride ourselves on serving the needs of our customers, and Front Porch displays a real commitment to product quality and technological innovation that is a good match for the needs of the industry in Latin America," said Nilson Fujisawa, LineUp technical director. "Here in Brazil, especially, we see ongoing opportunities for media management in education, government, and video and film production."
