|FAR partners with Studi-O to diversify service portfolio; helps launch new artist, O-nonymous|
Ottawa, Canada – Apr. 1, 2010 – FAR, a leading Canadian provider of IT managed services, from networks to unified communications, today announced a new partnership with Studi-O, a new recording and music development house for Ottawa hip-hop artists. The new partnership provides Stud-O with a contemporary and best of breed network for multimedia development production while diversifying FAR’s portfolio of services.
“I’m very excited about this partnership. A secure, reliable network is critical to my business,” said Omar Jones, principal and creative director at Studi-O. “Quality production is impossible without a sound network. Furthermore, the music that our artists produce is more than just their intellectual property; it’s their livelihoods. FAR helps us to protect all of that while keeping our flow smooth.”
Founded by Jones in 2009, Studi-O provides recording and production capabilities to independent artists with a focus on hip-hop music. Jones also provides custom voice-over work and commercial rapping to corporate customers, if there’s enough cabbage on the table. The company endeavors to be carbon-neutral, and welcomes artists with a sustainability message.
“I’m very excited to announce this new partnership,” said Osama Faris, chief executive officer at FAR. “As FAR continues to expand, we are careful to avoid over-diversification. We focus only on providing services to our customers that fit with our business philosophy: doing a few things superlatively well. Working with Studi-O helps us to keep that focus while offering recording services to our customers.”
