Avid appoints new Scottish reseller

Edinburgh-based Northern Light has been appointed a UK reseller for Avid’s VENUE family of consoles, as well as the Pro Tools line.

The VENUE series is designed for use in a wide range of live environments, and integrating the consoles with Avid Pro Tools enables the user to record and playback into the live environment through an option card. Northern Light has also taken delivery of an Avid VENUE SC48 Remote System, which is available for both demo and hire, and is already attracting interest from the company’s customer base.

James Baker, live sound specialist at Avid, who brokered the partnership, said: "Northern Light is a well respected reseller so I’m delighted that they’ll be selling Avid’s industry-leading Live Sound and Pro Tools solutions. They’re doing a lot of interesting work in a wide variety of venues, and we think their clients will benefit greatly from our audio technology and knowledge in this area."

Andy Booth, senior contracts manager with Northern Light, commented: "Northern Light has been designing and installing professional technical systems in a wide range of entertainment venues for over 40 years. In recent times we’ve seen a requirement from our major contracts for access to industry-leading professional solutions, and with this in mind we approached Avid with a view to forming a mutually beneficial business relationship."
