Industry veteran Paul Jones joins the company as VP sales, Asia-Pacific
Systems integrator (SI) Megahertz has appointed Paul Jones as VP sales, Asia-Pacific.
Jones joins Megahertz from Oracle’s Asian operations, where, as sales director, he was responsible for the very first Oracle cloud archive deal in the region and held the position as chair of the IABM regional council for APAC. Prior to that, he headed sales for the region at Front Porch Digital as the company’s first APAC employee, working with global brands such as Disney, Sony Pictures and Turner, and with leading regional broadcasters such as RTM, Media Prima, Astro, Mediacorp and Seven Network.
Leveraging Megahertz’s 30-plus years as a trusted global SI in the media and entertainment industries, Jones is confident that he can present Asia-Pacific broadcasters with the “very best” options when it comes to rolling out both established and new technologies. These include providing guidance and support to those transitioning from baseband to IP-based operations, 4K/Ultra HD (UHD) operations and file-based workflows, as well as traditional SDI infrastructures.
Jones said: “There has been a general decline in broadcast advertising revenue in the South-east Asian market, in particular, due to the surge in competition from global over-the-top (OTT)/video-on-demand (VoD) platforms.
“We’re keen to help them enhance their workflow to keep ahead of that curve, by implementing imaginative design and integration that work to smarter business models, generate engaging content cost-effectively and use more efficient multi-platform distribution systems.”
