DigiBox will distribute NewTek’s entire software-defined video production portfolio in the UK and Ireland for the first time, including TriCaster, 3Play replay systems and PTZ cameras.
DigiBox, a value-added distributor operating for the past 25 years across the broadcast, proAV and postproduction markets in the UK and Ireland, is now working with IP video developer NewTek.
NewTek develops devices and software used to create and distribute network-style television content. It is also a partner of NDI VoIP transport standard and codec. NDI supports real-time, ultra-low latency video over existing IP video networks, and currently connects billions of devices.
A recognised, long-term supplier in the UK and Ireland region, DigiBox will be distributing the entire NewTek portfolio of software-defined video production tools including the TriCaster family, 3Play video replay systems and PTZ cameras.
Also known as specialists in IP systems, DigiBox have worked with many products that support the NDI protocol since its launch in 2015 and have been advocates of its varied applications, ranging from broadcast to boardrooms.
“NewTek are a natural fit for our portfolio and for our established network of resellers and systems integrators, which span a wide range of vertical markets and expand further into the general AV and enterprise,” commented Marc Risby, DigiBox Managing Director and CTO. “We are looking forward to building on the substantial growth NewTek experienced during the pandemic.”
“DigiBox’s technical sales and engineering teams work to meet the challenges of today’s content producers whether it’s for a live broadcast or a corporate webinar. We believe this will strengthen NewTek’s position in the UK by making local support and professional services available, and also enable us to better serve customers in the region.”
Mark Coombes, NewTek Director of Sales, EMEA said, “Due to the company’s significant, sustained growth in the UK and Ireland it was essential to work with a distributor to continue. DigiBox were an ideal choice to support the expansion, giving NewTek’s partners and end users local access as the demand increases for accessible, easy to use live production tools across corporate/enterprise, education, live performance and other markets. We are looking forward to serving these markets with NewTek products through DigiBox and to sharing news of upcoming projects.”
DigiBox will also hold a range of NewTek stock in the UK to help speed up delivery to the dealer network. www.newtek.com
