Audio Video Solutions Corporation (AVSC) it to exclusively represent Optocore in the Phillipines, with a key focus on marketing the German manufacturer’s premium fibre networks, and broadcast routing solutions from sister company BroaMan.
With an increasing demand for reliable networking systems, AVSC approached Optocore in February this year, ordering a series of demo racks containing more than 40 interfaces as soon as an agreement was reached, including DD4MR-FX, DD32R-FX, V3R-TP-INTERCOM and various other V3R and X6R converters.
“With the addition of Optocore to our product portfolio, AVSC will be recognised as a total system solution provider for PA and AV markets in the Philippines,” said AVSC’s sales manager, Wayne A. Gutor.
According to Gutor, Optocore will make an immediate impact in several large church installations, and has been earmarked for a 5000-capacity Convention Centre/Worship Hall, Entertainment City (with large Casinos and Theatres), an Amusement Park and a Broadcast News Studio.
“We see the flexibility and compatibility of the Optocore system, in use with other major pro-audio brands such as Digico, Avid, Yamaha, Soundcraft, Clear-Com, Telex, RTS and Neumann, as a major advantage, along with Optocore’s ability to build multi-node large networks via optical fibre and Cat5/6 cables,” he continued.Article continues below
Meanwhile, technical training is already in place as a precursor to joining the OCT Certification programme, and AVSC will appoint a dedicated Optocore product manager supported by an engineering department for technical support and after-sales service. The brand will be formally launched during its largest annual pro audio show, PALMM Philippines 2012.
Optocore director of Sales and Marketing, Tine Helmle commented: “We are delighted to have found a partner of the calibre of AVSC in this region. I am very optimistic that we will achieve great sales in a short period of time.”
Gutor concluded: “AVSC is excited by the opportunity to develop the business potential of Optocore here in our country. As stated previously, the Optocore system will enable AVSC to become a total system solution provider for PA and AV markets here in the Philippines.”
