Broadcast Pix Expands Dealer Network Overseas And In The U.S.Momentum Of Slate Switcher Sales To Premier Customers Prompts Dealer Action (August 30, 2007)
?The expansion of our dealer network has been phenomenal in recent months, said Ken Swanton, Broadcast Pix President. ?We credit the increased interest to rapidly growing sales with high-profile customers who find it an easy, nimble way to create live television. Unlike other switchers, Slate has the rest of a control room built-in, including monitoring, graphics and clips, so a solo operator can create a high-end, polished production.
Recent customers in the U.S. include ESPN, CBS, NBC and E! Entertainment Television. In Europe, August sales include a third switcher for Marin, a leading marine research organization in The Netherlands; a second for FMC (Forsvartes Mediecenter) the television broadcast network for the Danish Armed Forces; and one to RTV N-H (Radio+TV Noord-Holland).
?We purchased a demo unit in June and as a result have sold many Slate switchers since then, said Anthony Cuellar, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Snader, a premier San Francisco-based dealer. ?Having a demo unit is crucial, because it is hard for many people to believe that there is finally a great live studio in a box, until they see the Slate demo.
According to David Hughes, Operations Manager for Broadcast Pix Europe, Africa, the Middle East and India (EAMEI), ?The labor savings incurred with our Slate switcher is fueling strong interest throughout the region. We now have installations in 21 countries in Europe alone, ranging from national broadcasters, to regional broadcasters, production houses, sports, game shows, ministries, schools and even a cathedral. The applications are extremely varied. The Broadcast Pix EAMEI operation is based in Aalsmeer, The Netherlands.
