Axon And Utah Scientific form partnership
Broadcast infrastructure specialist Axon Digital Design and Utah Scientific, a vendor of routing and master control switchers, have announced a strategic alliance intended to strengthen their offering to users worldwide. This means the two companies will cooperate closely on technology, product development, marketing and sales.
The alliance also includes a distribution agreement, effective immediately, in which Utah will become Axon’s Master Distributor for the Synapse and Cerebrum product lines in North America and Axon will become the exclusive distributor of Utah’s routing products in designated regions in the world, including UK, Western and Eastern Europe, China, Africa and Latin America.
“We are very pleased that through this agreement we can extend our product offering to our customers”, said Jan Eveleens, Axon CEO. “Utah’s router product line is a perfect match to our signal processing and monitoring & control product lines. This new partnership is a good strategic and cultural fit for both companies, enabling us to bring together our expertise to develop next generation solutions and reach new markets.”
“We are extremely excited about this unique opportunity for us to bring together two of the industry’s leading infrastructure suppliers,” said Tom Harmon, Utah Scientific CEO. “We are looking forward to being able to offer best-of-breed solutions in both switchers and modular products to our customers and we have started working with Axon to integrate our existing products and accelerate our development of products for the emerging segments of our industry such as IP video and UHD-TV.”
