PQM.net was launched in 1991 in Rimouski, Quebec, by Jacques Landry, a visionary and enthusiast of audiovisual and technology.
It was in 1996 that the company truly took off. Our television roots led us to push the technological boundaries of audio and audio-video streaming on the Internet. Since the early 2000s, our experience in traditional television has been recognized by our clients and sets us apart from our competitors.
Several decades later, the company's reputation in webcasting extends beyond borders. We manage and execute projects all around the world, from Montreal to Calgary, and from Toronto to New York, Las Vegas, Paris, Singapore, and even Hong Kong.
While PQM.net had already established a strong position in web event broadcasting since the early 2000s, the 2020 pandemic accelerated the company's growth. The demand, already high, skyrocketed!
In 2022, the four Landry brothers, sons of Jacques, officially took over the reins of PQM.net.
