LONDON, 16 March 2011 - Autocue has announced that Blonde Robot has been appointed as a distributor for Australia and New Zealand for their new and pro video product ranges.
The distribution agreement with Blonde Robot includes Autocue's acclaimed new video server range; its new range of high-end broadcast monitors; and its "Starter Series" teleprompters, lighting and camera support.
According to Autocue CEO Frank Hyman, "The appointment of Blonde Robot is the perfect opportunity to further extend our reach in the pro video market for our Starter Series, and also provides an excellent launch vehicle for our new video server and broadcast monitor ranges in this market."
Autocue's new range of broadcast quality reference monitors launch this month ahead of NAB 2011, with immediate availability. There are three main series of monitor, each available in 17" or 24" sizes, and each offering excellent functionality at a very cost effective price, as well as large format 40" and 46" screens with HD-SDI for studio and gallery use.
Autocue's highly popular Linux-based video servers are ideal replacements for tape machines, as well as an affordable solution for secondary applications within top-end broadcasters.
The Starter Series are the world's leading pro video prompters. At NAB, a new version of the SSP10 and iPad prompter will be launched, offering even greater portability and further weight reductions.
"We are very excited to be working with Autocue," said Blonde Robot Managing Director Eamon Drew. "Autocue is the acknowledged industry leader in teleprompters, but many may not be aware of their excellent broadcast and grading monitors, as well as their exciting new video server range. We're looking forward to making a big difference to the level of awareness of Autocue's expanding product range."
Quinto Communications will sell the complete Autocue product range and continue to be the exclusive distributor for Autocue's Newsoom and Scripting solutions, as well as the "Master" and "Professional" ranges of teleprompters in the region.
