Bexel Will Represent Full Line of Telecast Fiber Systems Solutions to Broadcast Customers

Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, announces that its Telecast Fiber Systems brand signed a distribution agreement with Bexel, a global provider of broadcasting technology and equipment. As a platinum-level distributor, Bexel will promote, sell and provide technical support for the full range of Telecast Fiber Systems' fiber optic solutions for broadcast production.

"We're very excited about our new partnership with Bexel. The company's extensive dealer network and renowned expertise in the broadcast video and audio equipment field, especially pertaining to outside broadcasting and mobile production, make Bexel an ideal partner as we continue to extend our reach in the global broadcast market," said Steve DeFrancesco, vice president and general manager of Telecast Fiber Systems. "Besides helping us put 'more feet on the street,' Bexel knows our products inside and out — and its extensive network and quick-turn inventory will give our customers even broader access to our industry-leading solutions."

Bexel is the latest company to join Telecast Fiber Systems' channel partner program. The program was designed to give customers more access to sales resources through distributor partnerships.


In addition, Bexel will provide a field inventory of high-run products to enable Telecast Fiber Systems to meet expedited delivery times.

"Our customers need no introduction to Telecast Fiber Systems' solutions, which have a well deserved reputation in the field for lowering costs, reducing setup time and delivering pristine video quality."
