The story of TV Tools
The story of TV Tools began in January 1996, when Timo Kujala decided to start his own business. The digitalization of media industry was just about to begin. There was a technological breakthrough happening in video editing, when the first non-linear solutions were about to come to the market. Timo started co-operation with an American company Scitex, and brought the non-linear editing to Finland.
The pioneer work of a newly founded business was not a piece of cake. VideoSphere, the first product of Scitex, did not work as smoothly as the provider’s marketing promises at first. Capital was limited, and each transaction funded the advance payments and customs expenses of the next imported system. With persistency, one VideoSphere at a time, the business began to roll.
TV Tools’ reputation had already spread within the industry. The know-how of post-production processes had evolved on a pretty good level, and Timo wanted to expand the business. In their second year of operating, TV Tools were chosen as the service provider of a new TV channel, Nelonen. The project comprised studio, production, and media logistics systems for news broadcasts. Nelonen chose the young company, because TV Tools’ solution was modern and innovative.
The success of demanding projects and Timo’s uncompromising customer service and hungry attitude generated results. Before the end of the 90s, TV Tools expanded their business to provide broadcast systems for cruise liners. Next for TV studios, then for distribution systems. Over the years, TV Tools has expanded their business to cover all needs among media production, management and distribution.
