London, 15 July 2021 — Videon, a leader in edge computing for video streaming, has appointed Platform Communications as its global strategic communications partner. Platform will support Videon with messaging development, media relations, and content creation.
Videon enables sports, news and emergency services organisations across 19 countries to reliably stream live HD broadcast quality video. The company has created a unique system on a chip (SoC) product that makes video streaming flexible, simple and cost-effective.
Platform’s work began by handling the announcement of Videon’s $7.3 million Series A funding round, led by Voyager Capital. The investment will enable Videon to bring its innovative technology to more customers worldwide.
“Platform has a fantastic track record of supporting fast-growth companies, creating communications programmes that deliver against business objectives,” said Rob Green, CEO at Videon. “Their strategic insight and industry connections are exceptional. We couldn’t have asked for a better communications partner to help us get our story to customers globally”.
“Video streaming continues to grow exponentially, vital for anything from sports to gaming, public safety, education and corporate events. Videon is democratising the ability to get top quality video out to audiences anytime, anywhere,” said David Lawrence, Managing Director at Platform. “We’re excited to work alongside Videon as it delivers on the next phase in its growth plans.”
