Primestream, a leading provider of asset management and automation software solutions for media production, has presented the 2020 Primestream Platinum Partner Award to Chesa (Chesapeake Systems). As the 14th recipient of the Platinum Partner Award, Chesa is the Platinum-level VAR that has represented Primestream products and solutions most effectively this year to its customers.

Chesa is a Baltimore-based systems integrator specializing in media workflow and media asset management (MAM) solutions. In one of its highest-profile recent projects, Chesa provided installation services and customized workflows for Time USA’s deployment of Primestream MAM and workflow management systems. Chesa supplied Primestream Xchange and Workflow Suite as part of Time USA’s relocation to its new facility in New York City after a recent acquisition.

"It is our pleasure to present this year’s Platinum Partner Award to Chesapeake Systems, and it’s a well-deserved honor," said Claudio Lisman, president and CEO of Primestream. "As exemplified by its outstanding work on the Time USA project and other high-profile Primestream implementations, Chesa exemplifies the values of our highly exclusive Platinum-level VAR program. These include close alignment with Primestream’s commitment to customers, an advanced understanding of our products and solutions, and a razor-sharp ability to seek out and identify outstanding opportunities."

In addition to a trophy, recognition through Primestream social media, and preferential product pricing, winners are considered among Primestream’s inner-most circle of partners and participate closely with Primestream on integration projects in their geographic region.

"It’s a great honor to be recognized as Primestream’s top Platinum VAR partner this year. This award signifies the outstanding partnership we’ve developed together and the trust Primestream has placed in our team to represent its products in the industry," said Jason Paquin, CEO of Chesa. "Primestream really understands the needs and workflows of broadcasters, and this partnership allows us to offer a platform that performs from ingest to playout and delivery. Going forward, we look forward to working with the Primestream product team to expand our reach with clients who need a management and orchestration tool to take them into the future of media workflows.
