Calrec has announced that Protel will be its exclusive technology partner and distributor in New Zealand. Protel is now selling Calrec’s entire range of audio products including mixing consoles, remote production, audio networking solutions and IP infrastructure technology.
Calrec’s VP of Sales Dave Letson said Protel was chosen as the “ideal” distributor for New Zealand because of the company’s market presence. “They’ve been providing technology solutions to the New Zealand broadcast market for more than 30 years,” he said.
Tyrone Payne, Managing Director at Protel International Technologies, said, “Like everywhere, the broadcast market in New Zealand is moving quickly to IP-based infrastructures.
“The demands and ‘up-time’ requirements of on-air broadcasting remain constant but added functionality and the need for extra flexibility in areas such as remote workflows, mean that solution providers require high levels of redundancy coupled with innovative technology.”
Some of the radio broadcasters that Protel works with in New Zealand include Radio New Zealand, NZME Radio Network and Mediaworks Radio.
Calrec’s previous distributor was Syncrotech Systems Pty Ltd in New South Wales.
