Held in Amsterdam on the 10th February, the second annual CresFest saw GV Multimedia and some of their valued customers welcomed to Crestron’s hot ticket event. Held at ISE every year, this edition saw the team once again taking part in a stunning evening of hospitality and entertainment.

Joined this year by Gary and Colette from Swansea University as well as Richard and Steve from Cranfield University, GV enjoyed a wealth of food and drink as well as an intimate concert by none other than Jamie Cullum.

Everybody was thoroughly delighted to have been invited to such a prestigious event and to experience Crestron’s hospitality. The team would like to extend a huge thanks to everybody involved. 

Last week saw the GV Multimedia team once again attend Integrated Systems Europe held at the Amsterdam RAI over the 9th – 12th February. Hosting a number of GV’s valued customers, ISE saw some fantastic exhibitions from the world’s top manufacturers of audio visual equipment.

The Maverick team welcomed GV’s team and customers to their Tiki Bar themed stand where they demonstrated the impressive capabilities of the Microsoft Surface Hub – a versatile, cloud connected Windows 10 device that boasts the simplicity and consistency of a custom surface display. The large interactive touchscreen offers 100 points of multitouch as well as a host of features to aid interactivity and collaboration.

On January 28th, GV Multimedia were the proud sponsors of the Adventure into Big Data event hosted by the School of Management at Swansea University. The event took place in the School of Management’s brand new building at Swansea University’s Bay Campus. The event focussed on Digital Marketing for the Tourism industry and was attended by members of Visit Wales as well as the Minister for Culture, Sport and Tourism. The event utilised the brand new NEC X-Series video walls and Tannoy Q-Flex 16 PA system within the building’s atrium to great effect, displaying showreels, marketing information, workshop content and sponsors logos. The surrounding lecture theatres were also utilised for the various presentations and workshops throughout the day and made use of the comprehensive presentation facilities. In both cases the core of the system used Crestron Digital Media.

The whole GV Multimedia team would like to extend their congratulations to Jain McGarty who recently celebrated 20 years at the company.

Jain started in the summer of 1995 at Greenham Video in Astley as an internal sales support. Jain’s initial duties included having to look after the branch’s AV bench engineer and schedule repairs and call outs. As the business progressed and they started to carry out installs for customers, her focus was shifted to that side of the business.

In 2000, Jain was promoted to Manchester’s Branch Manager. With much of GV’s business being in system design and install, Jain co-ordinates the engineering team and runs the North West office where she oversees the company’s operations within the region and leads a team of eight.

Jain said, “I can’t believe its 20 years since I started and 15 of them in the same position at the Manchester office, as they say time surely flies when you are having fun!”

Congratulations once again, Jain, on this fantastic milestone.

At GV Multimedia’s Technical Sales Conference, held from the 11th – 13th December in Jersey, GV Multimedia Chairman Brian Abrahams and Managing Director Lilian Cutting were pleased to announce two promotions with immediate effect.
