BURBANK, CA--Electrosonic Products has been selected as a Preferred Manufacturing Partner (PMP) of Denver-based USAV Group, a national association of leading professional AV integrators founded in 2001.
The goal of USAV Group is to leverage the experience and core competencies of its affiliated integrators, PMPs and management to meet the needs of clients and consultants locally and nationwide. USAV’s influential integrators, who currently number 30, are dedicated to designing, sourcing, implementing and supporting innovative commercial AV projects.
“It’s not easy to become a PMP: It’s a very select group,” points out USAV CEO K.C. Schwarz. “We get a lot of inquiries from manufacturers interested in becoming PMPs. We’re looking for partners with broad product lines and an excellent reputation, manufacturers with equipment that will achieve a critical mass among our integrators. Manufacturers have to go through an exhaustive review process just to get in the game then have to win a two-thirds vote of our members. Electrosonic is the gold standard in a growing and important niche in the pro AV arena, and we believe that USAV will help broaden their product distribution and increase penetration in this sector.”
Electrosonic Products manufactures three main product lines for the pro AV arena –video and graphics streaming encoders and decoders, multi-image video processing, and HD players – which are ideal solutions for the market areas represented by USAV’s members: command and control, emergency operation centers, network operations centers, houses of worship, high-end digital signage, broadcast, government, and corporate.
In addition to providing access to a platform of influential integrators, USAV also offers PMPs a training and certification channel for their products. This ensures Electrosonic will be well represented in the marketplace by USAV member integrators.
