Cinegy GmbH, global leader for broadcast playout software in the cloud, is pleased to announce Akratek as the latest of its business partners. Cinegy AŞ opened in Istanbul at the beginning of 2020 and since then, the Turkish office has been busy expanding its business relationships with local service integrators and representatives.
Akratek is currently celebrating its 10th anniversary and has been serving the media industry for many years both as a system integrator and as a provider of a wide range of locally produced equipment. CEO Selahattin Acaroglu from Akratek said, “Throughout our 10 years’ of business, we have worked with dozens of local, satellite and national TV channels, have helped set-up most of the university radio and television studios located in Turkey and have had the opportunity to work closely with foreign TV channels of Middle Eastern origin.”
Acaroglu went on to describe how they have been following Cinegy’s product developments for many years. “We are delighted that we can now offer the whole suite of their integrated and modular solutions to our customers. Cinegy AŞ has been quickly established with strong staff who know both the products and the broadcast industry very well.”
Soon after the partnership agreement was signed, detailed training was given by Cinegy to the Akratek project team, enabling them to quickly get to know the products and solution opportunities – Video Server, News Automation, Archive, Editing, Graphic CG, Prompter, etc.
“Technology brands and products are very close in terms of functionality and quality” Acaroglu continued, “And in the field of automation, it is not easy to find companies who can provide a wide range of integrated solutions. Cinegy, as a brand, can satisfy customers easily with an efficient workflow, ease of installation and local support.
Software and information technology infrastructures have become indispensable parts of the media world. Conventional device manufacturers cannot easily adapt to the fast-paced IT developments such as the move to UHD and 8K. Software-based products like those offered by Cinegy, however, are developing faster with high added value.
Murat Küçüksaraç COO of Cinegy AŞ confirmed, “We are delighted to strengthen our existing business by welcoming Akratek to our partner infrastructure. Their knowledge and experience perfectly complement the other partners, as well as our focus, and we are looking forward to working with them more closely in the future.
Cinegy’s customer portfolio in Turkey consists of many of the largest local media groups, training institutions and corporate customers. With its business partners, Cinegy AŞ can better respond to its customers’ ever-changing and developing workflow and transformation needs faster and with a better quality of service.
