Calibre signs Prosound for African distribution

Calibre UK has appointed South Africa based Prosound as its distributor for the sub-Saharan Africa region.

The distributor and rental company, which specialises in professional sound and lighting equipment, signed Calibre in response to demands for hardware solutions for multi-screen shows and installations.

Mark Malherbe, technical director at Prosound, said: “We supply a number of high-end production companies not just in South Africa but in East and West African countries as well.”

Pauline Brooksbank, managing director of Calibre UK, added: “The market for high-quality image processing in sub-Saharan Africa is growing very fast, and we believe Prosound is perfectly positioned to offer our entire range to this market including the HQView and FoveaHD ranges.

“The synergy between video production, sound and light is growing not just in the rental arena but in fixed installations as well, and we look forward to seeing more of our products being sold into all these sectors through the good auspices of the team at Prosound.”
