BroaMan appoints Contact Distribution as Canadian distributor

BroaMan, specialist in bandwidth fiber networks for professional, broadcast quality video, audio and data, has named Contact Distribution as its exclusive Canadian distributor. 

Contact Distribution specialises in sales and support for a range of pro AV brands, working with consultants, designers and integrators. The two companies have worked together on a number of projects, ranging from installations in performing art centers such as Massey Hall, Roy Thomson Hall and the National Arts Centre; sports venues including Rogers Arena, The Scotiabank Centre and Place Bell; and both special events and installations for Broadcast including the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics.  

“When we started with Optocore, many in the industry hadn’t taken those first steps into digital networking,” said Bill Coons, director of Contact Distribution. “We are now at a point where not only system designers and operators are more accepting of fiber solutions but fiber is a sheer necessity due to increasing channel counts, numerous different mediums and formats and the expanding production needs of events and shows to draw in and captivate audiences. BroaMan products are the next evolution of technology and people are ready to make that jump.”

BroaMan sales distribution manager, Dawid Somló, commented: “Contact Distribution is a well-known and highly-respected company in Canada,” he stated. “They have distributed  Optocore products successfully for many years, developing a vast knowledge base in the field of fiber optics. Due to the close cooperation it was entirely logical to also hand over the distribution of our video and data fiber solutions, represented by the BroaMan brand. The fact that it is in the hands of a team who can be trusted, will provide great benefit to customers from the broadcast, installation, sports and other markets, which will be reinstated after COVID.”
