Datasat adds Klipsch Speakers to its Cinema portfolio
Wednesday 26th June 2013
Datasat Digital Entertainment, the world leaders in digital audio solutions for home and professional cinema, has today announced that it has become an official distributor of Klipsch Cinema Speakers. Effective immediately, the deal will see Datasat distribute the high performance, professional speakers alongside its market-leading AP20 cinema audio processors to the cinema market throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Datasat and Klipsch are both exhibiting at CineEurope 2013 in Barcelona until June 27.
Datasat has established itself as a leading provider of audio solutions for the professional cinema industry. This distribution agreement is an important step in the company's strategy to diversify the range of complementary audio equipment it offers to customers. Klipsch reputation for quality engineered products ensures that its cinema speakers operate perfectly with Datasat cinema processors to deliver the full power of today's multi-channel movie soundtracks.
“Since our first major blockbuster, Jurassic Park, 20 years ago, Datasat has been at the forefront in ultimate multi-channel digital surround sound,” said Ciaran Doran, Datasat Group CEO. “As audiences become accustomed to 3D visuals, I believe that audio performance will be a major differentiator for exhibitors over the next few years. With Klipsch as a partner in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, we are well positioned to offer a range of solutions to exhibitors that has simply not been experienced in this region to date.”
“Partnering with Datasat will provide us access to an established network of integrators and exhibitors, given the company’s technical savvy and immeasurable experience in the cinema market. We’re confident our speakers will align well with Datasat’s high-end cinema processors, as well as when marketed as a standalone solution to new and existing Datasat customers,” said Rob Standley, Director of Commercial Sales.
