Q&A With ASK Proxima: Projection Benefits & User Support

AV in action featuring ASK Proxima’s solutions In a super-saturated category such as front-projection, either a product offers great features and value, or it’s going to get lost in the crowd. We have asked Steen Sorensen of ASK Proxima’s sales and business development team to explain their unique perspectives on projection to technology managers and end-users.

What is ASK Proxima’s current value proposition for technology manager? How can tech managers and facility directors qualify the investment?

Steen Sorensen: ASK Proxima brand is owned by the ACTO factory which is a quality registered ISO 9001 manufacturer, and one of the largest in the world. ASK Proxima is not sold through a distributor, nor is it an OEM brand. AMT the owner of the ASK Proxima brand actually OEM manufactures for a number of other popular projector brands and can offer great factory pricing and support to our reseller and dealers, allowing them to pass the savings on to the customer.

Ultimately, we are a projector company, projectors are our business, not just a small division in a large multinational corporation.

All of our projectors carry a full three-year warranty and lamps are warrantied for one full year and can offer direct customer support including advanced replacement in the event of projector failure during the first two years.
