A new media and video technology company called Vidunix has been formed in Prague, Czech Republic by former senior management from KIT Digital.
Vidunix has been founded as a private company, and will offer cloud-based and deployed solutions that allow clients to “connect, engage and enrich the experience they have with their customers”.
Derek McKellar, formerly Vice President of Client Services and Ondrej Matejka, formerly Director of Global Customer Support at KIT Digital, join Vidunix respectively as Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer.
“Over the last few months we have seen what seem to be a geographic focus shift with our competitors and related businesses who are based in Czech Republic, together with right sizing efforts that are freeing up talented and experienced video technology human capital.” said Derek McKellar, Vidunix’s CEO. “We are keen to capitalise on this opportunity and grow our team. We are committed to Czech Republic, the business environment, the highly skilled resources and to serve our clients globally from a cost effective and very central location.”
The company archly asserts in its press release that the company will aim to provide “a truly different customer-centric, innovative experience without the burden of a public company undergoing massive transformation or chasing market expectations”.
A follow-up event will be held in Prague towards the end of this month with the intention of courting prospective clients, job seekers and the press.
