Leader Expands Channel Partner Programme in France, Spain and Switzerland
Leader Electronics Corporation has expanded its sales and support representation with the appointment of three new channel partners on the European mainland. They follow the recent appointment of D+P Multimedia Products Ltd in Ireland as channel partner for Ireland plus Big Pic Media Limited, Boxer Systems Limited and Thameside in Britain. The three new Leader channel partners are AVC-Systems AG (based in Einsiedeln, Switzerland), Unitecnic (Barcelona, Spain), and VideoPlus (Saint-Ouen, France).
“AVC-Systems, Unitecnic and VideoPlus are three of the most dynamic broadcast resellers in their respective countries,” says Kevin Salvidge, Leader’s European regional development manager. “Each has an excellent understanding of the markets we address and shares our commitment to encouraging the industry’s migration from standard definition and high definition into ultra-high definition and high dynamic range. Existing and potential customers throughout Europe now have greater than ever opportunity to work with specialist suppliers offering local sales and support. All three companies have access to the full Leader product line which includes the LV5490 4K waveform monitor and LV7390 4K-upgradeable rasterizer, Leader LV5770A and LV5333 3G/HD/SD-SDI waveform monitors, LV5381 four-input HD/SD-SDI waveform monitor and the LV7770 multi-SDI and LV7330 rasterizers.”
