Audiovisual and media development specialists ACE and Technomedia Solutions LLC have formed a new strategic alliance to provide audio-visual and media production services to theme parks, museums, live shows, visitor attractions and other leisure and entertainment projects in China.
Technomedia Solutions has served the attractions industry for many years from Orlando and Los Angeles as a provider of AV and interactive media development as well as technology design and integration services.
ACE, headquartered in Hong Kong, is one of China’s largest system integration firms, and also the country’s sole distributor of Harman audio products. ACE maintains additional facilities in seven mainland China cities.
The alliance was formalized on February 2, 2018 in Beijing. Bingo Tso, chief technology officer and senior vice president of ACE, and John Miceli, president and chief creative officer of Technomedia, closed the deal in a formal signing ceremony. When the firms co-bid on projects in China, Technomedia will address the creative aspects, and ACE will address the build, install and maintenance.
Both companies are upbeat and confident about the new partnership and each other’s professionalism and skills. “I have seen ACE’s excellent work on the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, as well as on recently completed theme parks,” says Miceli. “I see ACE as operating in a similar way and with a similar culture to our own company – taking immense pride in our technical expertise, quality and attention to detail. I trust ACE to handle its responsibilities on our joint projects in China with the highest standards of quality.”
“Technomedia is the ideal Western partner for our China products,” says Tso. “Technomedia’s executives have worked with American attractions creators for many years. They know the people and the production systems intimately. They’ll be able to communicate and handle the processes, leaving the actual construction to us. It’s a perfect balance.”
