Optocore appoints AVSC in The Philippines
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."
