CHESA Named as Adobe Certified Service Partner for Video and Audio

Adobe has named nationwide U.S. media technology systems integrator CHESA (Chesapeake Systems) as an Adobe Certified Service Partner for Video and Audio (ACeSP). With this Adobe certification, CHESA continues to expand its capabilities around enabling studios, creatives, media IT, and Federal agencies with their expertise and insights in designing, installing, and supporting all facets of the media life cycle. CHESA is one of only two US-based systems integrators with this certification and the only systems integrator with a Federal Division certified to work with Federal agencies. As an Adobe Certified Service Partner, CHESA gains a wealth of Adobe knowledge and support training required to create and support the best solutions based on client needs.

“Working with CHESA for years, I’m now looking forward to seeing the industry benefit even more from CHESA’s extensive and ongoing certification training. CHESA and Adobe Premiere Pro each bring 30 years respectively of dedication to creatives,” says Dave Helmly, Adobe Head of Strategic Development Professional Video – Cloud. “Together with Adobe ProVideo, CHESA can deliver the best media workflows for video and audio in a fast-evolving industry including cloud technologies.”

CHESA’s solutions architects and engineers have completed intense training from Adobe. The CHESA team will continue to receive training on an ongoing basis, allowing them to design and integrate Adobe workflows into user-friendly ecosystems and multi-platform environments, with extensive capabilities in ingesting and managing assets, automation, orchestration, storage, and archive. CHESA’s Professional Services and Service Level Agreements offer ongoing workflow refinement and support. Access to Adobe’s tool kits and knowledge base also fits in with CHESA’s culture of lifelong learning to stay ahead of the curve. Adobe is committed to its select certified partners and has shown, through its training program, that this is the next step in its support for the creative storyteller and their environments.

“The speed of innovation in media technology today can be incredibly disruptive,” says Lance Hukill, Vice President of Sales at CHESA. “Our core value at CHESA is life-long learning to ensure we are always solutioning with the end-users in mind. The Adobe certification program enhances CHESA’s integrations and customer support in addition to ongoing certification training.”
