SSL Builds Asian Live Console Distribution Network
"The live music scene in this region is vibrant and very healthy, and we look forward to being an increasingly important part of that"
Solid State Logic welcomed DMT in Hong Kong and Beijing and Stage Craft International in Manila, Philippines to its commercial distribution partners for the SSL Live console. The company also announces that distribution for Singapore will be processed through the SSL Singapore office.
"DMT has been an exclusive distributor for SSL in the greater China and Hong Kong territory for nearly 20 years now," says Chris Fish, technical director of DMT. "By catering to the professional broadcast, music and post production markets, we have forged a very close working relationship with SSL and have worked hard to expand our operation to serve the live and installation markets. The SSL Live represents an exciting new opportunity for us in this field and perfectly complements our existing high-end live companies. After the recent SSL Live distributor training event at our Hong Kong headquarters, we found that everyone is getting very positive feedback from prospective clients, especially with regards to sound quality and flexibility."
"Stage Craft International has a long and proud track record in the professional light and sound industry and at broadcast studios, houses of worship and live venues across the Philippines," says Shiela Petalio, senior sales manager for Stage Craft International. "We have continuously been closely associated with the leading brands in the world, and SSL is the best in this field. Our specialists have been trained by SSL in the operation and service of the Live desk, and we can't wait to show it to our customers. There is already so much interest."
"SSL Singapore has been part of the SSL network for some 25 years, and I was pleased to join them this year to help co-ordinate and market the SSL Live desk," says Dominic Koh, sales and marketing manager, SSL Singapore. "I've spent my career in the live music industry both as an engineer and commercially, and I think that the SSL Live desk is stunning in sound and flexibility. We have already received many requests from across the region from people keen to try it for themselves. I'm looking forward to taking our demo system on the road in 2014."
"China and South East Asia represent an important and growing market for Solid State Logic," says Anthony Gofton, Sales Manager, Solid State Logic. "The live music scene in this region is vibrant and very healthy, and we look forward to being an increasingly important part of that. We are pleased to announce that we have a growing network of distributors for the Live desk throughout Asia, each with demo console(s) and trained personnel on site. We will host events across the region throughout 2014 and will be showing the console at many trade shows, seminars and concerts. This way, everyone will have the opportunity to see and hear the SSL Live console for themselves. Each distributor represents the best in professional audio products and services in their region, and I am pleased and proud to work closely with them."
