Gearhouse Broadcast is sole UK, Ireland approved dealer for Lawo video products
Last week’s IBC show brought the announcement that Gearhouse Broadcast had been appointed as sole UK and Ireland approved dealer by broadcast technology specialist Lawo for its range of video products, including the V__pro 8 multipurpose video processor.
Lawo’s V__pro 8 combines a number of different capabilities in one tool, guaranteeing maximum efficiency and greatest operating safety at significantly reduced cost. It can handle multiple video signal formats as well as audio and video conversion. The single box offers high quality monitoring, sample rate conversion, colour correction and embedding and de-embedding within a tiny footprint. The 1U rack unit can be used in an OB, studio or audio environment and eliminates the need for multiple products, making it ideal for installations where space is at a premium. Its modern HTML5 GUI provides an easy-to-use interface for day-to-day work.
As part of the agreement, Gearhouse Broadcast will supply Lawo video products directly to its customers and provide inclusive local support packages. It will also specify the products on installation projects that its specialist Systems Integration team undertake.
“We’re very well known within the audio industry, but video is a relatively new and very exciting area for us, so we’re delighted to be working with an established partner such as Gearhouse Broadcast who will help us to further build our standing in the video market,” said Barry Revels of Lawo. “Gearhouse’s proven technical expertise and worldwide support network make them the ideal dealer for our expanding range of video products.”
“Lawo’s range of video products is really impressive and the V__pro 8 in particular really stands out from the competition in terms of its functionality and minimal size” said Kevin Fitzgerald, sales manager at Gearhouse Broadcast. “Becoming sole UK and Ireland approved dealer for this line of Lawo products is a real coup and means we can supply and support the products to our wide customer base including OB companies and TV studios in the UK and beyond.”
