Optocore Appoints Soundware as Danish Distributor
“Optocore has a first-class pedigree in the distribution of audio, IP Intercom and video,” noted Soundware Pro Audio Manager, Kim Johansen, who had personally encountered and used Optocore systems over the years, but felt the brand’s potential was not being fully realised.
The German manufacturer also believes it has found the ideal partner. Said International Sales & Marketing Manager, Mark Davidson, “We chose Soundware due to their knowledge of the broadcast, fixed install and live performance markets in Denmark as well as their experience and reputation.”
One obvious attraction to Soundware was the fact that Optocore can be integrated with major brands including DiGICo, Studer, Lawo, ClearCom and Neumann, while SSL, Studer and DiGiCo desks also control Optocore preamps.
“Although Optocore has long been a leader in fibre optic solutions, by recently extending its core area to the CAT5 SANE protocol — enabling their devices to be made into an optical ring while having a small side network running SANE —the possibilities are greatly increased.
“Having high quality products to offer to our clients is a keystone in our business,” he concluded. “ We deal directly with rental houses and broadcast facilities which all need and expect the best. And with brands like Optocore on board we endeavour to provide them with precisely that.”
Soundware already has Optocore demo racks containing DD2FR, DD4MR, X6R-FX and X6R-TP network interfaces and will be undertaking OCT training in due course.
