Optocore appoints AVSC in The PhilippinesSome of AVSC's new Optocore demo racks
The Philippines - Optocore has appointed Audio-Video Solutions Corporation (AVSC) as its new exclusive distributor in the Philippines. The company will be responsible for marketing the German manufacturer's premium fibre networks, and broadcast routing solutions from sister company BroaMan.

Representing some of the industry's leading international brands, AVSC sees Optocore's high-speed, high-performance digital networking system as the perfect solution for reliable transmission of audio, data and video signals in large installation projects, rental/touring applications and the broadcast market sectors, according to AVSC's sales manager, Wayne A. Gutor.

"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," he said.

Faced with an increasing demand for a reliable networking system, AVSC approached Optocore back in February this year. Once the deal was agreed they wasted no time in ordering a series of demo racks containing more than 40 interfaces, including DD4MR-FX, DD32R-FX, V3R-TP-IIntercom and various other V3R and X6R converters.

According to Gutor, Optocore will make an immediate impact in various 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. In fact the broadcast segment will become a core market.

"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.

Technical training has already been put 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 their biggest annual pro audio show, PALMM Philippines 2012.

Commented Optocore director of sales & marketing, Tine Helmle, "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."
