ASC takes on dealership for Optocore/Broaman

Amptown System Company (ASC) has taken on a dedicated dealership for Munich-based fibre network specialists BroaMan and Optocore, the latter of which recently supplied X6R-FX-INTERCOM devices for the communication system used during this year’s US Open opening ceremonies. The new partnership, which was confirmed at IBC2013 in Amsterdam, will see ASC representing both brands in the system integration and live sectors.

“As a one-stop shop for consulting, installation, integration and service, we rely on leading international manufacturers such as Optocore and BroaMan to ensure the success of our own projects and the best possible solution for the customer,” said Stefan Thomsen, sales manager, ASC Communication Systems. “We were eager to assess how BroaMan technical infrastructures could be integrated into future projects and how these solutions would meet challenges for our theatre business, where media networks have to transmit different broadband signals.

“Both companies provide key technology in the large scale event, live sound business and broadcast. It has now become an industrial standard to run glass fibre for transmitting signals to replace the vast amount of copper cabling of the past.

“We therefore see this new partnership as a logical development. ASC is a system house delivering technical solutions to its clients in terms of media technology, while. Optocore and BroaMan offer the tools to create these solutions; they understand about infrastructure provision, and connectivity to fulfil the installation requirements.”

Summarised Tine Helmle, director Of Optocore and head of BroaMan, “We are excited by this partnership with ASC and the possibilities it offers. They are a long established company, with a great pedigree for delivering high prestige projects. Furthermore they have fantastic outreach and most importantly they completely understand our technologies, and what they can bring to their sophisticated media integrations.”
