Masstech has announced that it has appointed Mediakern as technical partner for France and French-speaking territories in Europe and Northern Africa. Mediakern will design and deploy highly optimized storage and orchestration ecosystems built on the Kumulate content management platform.

The team at Mediakern has a long history in M&E, which has allowed them to develop strong technical expertise in content management and long-term partnerships with storage and content management resellers and integrators. With a proven track record in delivering edge-technology onboarding and adoption, Mediakern will provide Masstech customers with expert advice and guidance in archive, storage, asset lifecycle and database management.

The founder and CEO of Mediakern, Michel Jambart, has extensive experience in evangelizing and delivering innovative technologies and complex content/media management solutions across EMEA and Russia. Over the past 30 years Michel has worked for renowned media technology firms, such as EVS, Front Porch, and Numeric Video (which he co-founded).

“I am very excited to work alongside innovative companies such as Masstech,” said Jambart. “Masstech offers proven agility to adapt to fast-changing market expectations in the on-prem, cloud, and hybrid storage space with a key focus on customer satisfaction. Masstech’s Kumulate content and storage management platform brings great value to traditional workflows, by onboarding state-of-the-art technologies such as AI and cognitive services to automatically create value on stored content. I have always believed that this is the way forward, and I’m confident our users will quickly understand the value of these solutions over passive systems.”

Luc Tomasino, Masstech’s VP of Global Sales commented: “Michel and the Mediakern team are a fabulous addition to the Masstech stable. They are extremely well respected throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and their extensive knowledge of media and content management within M&E environments means that they are the perfect partner to deliver Masstech’s next generation solutions to our customers throughout those regions.”
