21 April, 2022 – Remote simultaneous interpretation (RSI) platform, Interprefy, has created a new division aimed at providing language and interpretation services to the audio/visual (AV) market.
Headed by Mark Breakspear, former Project Manager at DLC Events in Dubai, UAE, the new unit says it will open up new avenues for AV providers as well as their customers by providing access to remote language interpreters for any event (offline, online, or hybrid) and on any platform.
The Interprefy platform allows live event attendees to participate from anywhere in the world by providing access to interpretation services as well as a remote support team that monitor and assist with interpretation and AV services.
Breakspear brings more than 15 years’ worth of experience from the AV and conferencing industry, joining from Middle Eastern AV and conference systems provider, DLC Events, where he led the company’s simultaneous interpretation requirements.
Speaking on his new position as AV Alliance Manager at Interprefy, Breakspear said: “I’ve had the most amazing experience working for Lorraine and the team at DLC Events during the past 15 years, and I’m thankful for having the opportunity to continuously learn and deliver the best solutions to our clients whilst enjoying each day with a team that cares so much.”
Breakspear’s 15-year tenure culminated with a vast quantity of projects throughout Expo 2020 Dubai, many of which involved Interprefy as the chosen solution for simultaneous interpretation.
A highlight, Breakspear says, was delivering the interpretation for an interview with Thomas Pesquet, an astronaut on board the European Space Station, from French to English and Arabic to more than 1,500 attendees watching at the heart of Expo 2020 Dubai, Al Wasl Plaza – all in real-time.
“I’ve known and worked with Interprefy for many years, and it’s great to be working at the platform of choice for interpreters across the world – and soon to be AV providers, too. I’m looking forward to continuing my passion for language services and technology with a company that is growing as fast as Interprefy in both size and reputation,” Breakspear said.
“We couldn’t be happier to have Mark Breakspear leading our newly formed Strategic Alliance team as AV Alliance Manager,” said Richard Roocroft, Global Head, Strategic Alliances at Interprefy. “Interprefy is thrilled to find someone with his abilities, ideas and great attitude and we look forward to having him share his industry and combined service experience with our wider audio-visual partner network.”
Interprefy will be exhibiting its new AV services at Integrated Systems Europe in Barcelona, 10-13 May 2022. For more information, please visit: https://www.iseurope.org/
