(Long Beach, California--April 29, 2013) DIXON Sports Computing has partnered with CIS Group to expand their market coverage into Latin America, with a focus on the Brazilian marketplace. CIS Group specializes in designing, engineering and integrating, file-based turnkey solutions for the creation, management and distribution of video, film, audio, and data.
Headquartered in Davie, Florida, CIS Group has field offices in Brazil and Portugal. CIS Group services broadcast facilities, sports venues, live/post production studios, educational institutions, corporations, and houses of worship.
“I am looking forward to work closely with CIS, raising DIXON brand recognition in Brazil to achieve the same level of success and market penetration we currently have in the United States sports market.” said Michael Dixon, President of DIXON Sports. “For the past 25 years, CIS Group has built a strong reputation, designing and installing a wide variety of production systems. DIXON is a complementary line of sports solutions for the CIS Group portfolio and I am confident this partnership will be beneficial to both DIXON and CIS.”
“While the transition to production workflows has grown substantially among content producers and broadcasters in Brazil, we believe that clients are now looking for the correct tools to fully implement sports oriented workflows. These tools must be capable of supporting the overwhelming attention that the sports media industry is giving to the upcoming sports events in Brazil, such us the Soccer World Cup in 2014 and the Rio Olympics in 2016. DIXON is a key player in sports media management, sports logging and highlight systems. With DIXON’s easy integration to Avid, EVS, Grass Valley, Harris and SONY, it is certainly a perfect match to CIS Group’s current projects in Brazil and other countries in Latin America”, said Guilherme Silva, CEO of CIS Group.
Some of DIXON’s most influential customers include DIRECTV, SKY NZ, Univision, The Miami Heat, NBA TV, CNN Sports, Rogers Sports Net, FOX Sports, FOX International, PGA TOUR Entertainment, WWE as well as numerous stadiums, football teams and universities in the USA.
