Technology provider on fast track

PIVoD Technologies, a Perth-based provider of media on demand technology for use in museums, as well as residential and corporate systems, has secured a position in this year’s Rising Stars.

You have to see to believe what PIVoD Technologies is capable of creating. Chief executive Tom Warner believes what has helped their success is leading the audiovisual industry into the IT industry.

“What was once done in the analog world we now do digitally,” he said. “Our greatest marketing tools are our completed project sites, being able to show potential clients the work we do in museums and corporate environments.”

Mr Warner said while PIVoD Technologies is a WA-based company, the majority of its projects are over east and overseas.

“We are not as high profile in WA and therefore it has been hard trying to attract projects from here and close to where we are,” he said.

“However, Perth is a great foundation and it provides the right lifestyle for employees.”

In some ways the isolation has benefited overseas projects according to Mr Warner, with the successful completion and ongoing management of projects on the east coast.

“We are well established in the cultural sector (museums and performing arts centres), but our focus is also turning to include the corporate and residential environments,” Mr Warner said.

The PIVoD Technologies IP telephony application is a good example of how the company has been able to stay ahead of its competitors.

It is an audio visual room automation and environmental control system and can control everything from a room’s lighting to the air-conditioning and projector operations.  “We have created a niche and have a different product,” Mr Warner said.

“This is possible because of our forward thinking and the capabilities of our products, but we also expect others to follow.”

“We started with four employees in 1999; now we have over 70 and additional offices in Melbourne, Sydney, Amsterdam and Louisiana.

“Our employees are a range of software engineers, hardware technicians and a sales team.

“They usually have an IT or audiovisual background, or ideally a combination of both.”

Mr Warner said PIVoD Technologies will continue to grow and succeed because it has a product in a growing market and creates good relationships with other organisations.

“Our reach extends beyond our own direct contact with clients, the success of past projects, and referrals and repeat business,” he said.

“What is needed in the future is for us to develop relationships and build a network which allows us to penetrate the market in Australia and overseas.

“We have the products, now we need to ensure they are well supported and that we educate the marketplace. We would also like to do more work in WA.”
