Digital console makers Euphonix and Klotz Digital have formed an alliance for operations in North America.
While both are digital console makers, the alliance might not be as redundant as it seems at first glance since their products are more complementary than competitive, they say.
According to a release describing the agreement, Euphonix will market and sell Klotz Digital’s range of broadcast products in North America. The alliance was described as a “strategic engineering and sales partnership.”
Klotz’s strength is in broadcast consoles and live production networking. Euphonix on the other hand majors in studio recording and post-production.
Euphonix CEO Martin Kloiber said, “The complement of Klotz Digital’s products to Euphonix’s digital audio mixing systems offer many new advantages to all of our customers.” He added, “Euphonix will be able to coordinate both companies’ product lines to end-users as well as system integrators offering a complete technical solution and seamless customer support.”
Klotz Digital founder and CEO Thomas Klotz said, “From now on Euphonix and Klotz Digital will be able to provide all-embracing, flexible and reliable broadcast network solutions for TV and radio stations, including large-format digital audio production consoles as well as compact consoles and audio distribution networks.”
