CEO of Videodata
Teltec has the aim of establishing itself as a pan-European leader in the market for professional video and audio equipment rental by growing its branch network. Hamburg as one of the most important media hubs in Germany had remained one of the white spots on Teltec’s map. In Videodata they found a target that not only allows bridging this gap but one that is also known among its competitors for setting the pace in online retailing.
Videodata was founded in 1992 by Kay Grätsch as a provider and installer for audio and video equipment. Videodata developed rapidly to become one of the largest retailers and rental companies for professional audio and video equipment in Hamburg. The company focused early on online distribution and today offers the most modern and successful online service for AV professionals.
