Kramer joins forces with Calibre

Kramer Electronics will bolster its product line-up with Calibre UK scalers after the two manufacturers signed a co-operation agreement covering global sales, supply and development of products.

The Calibre products will be integrated into Kramer’s product line-up in the fourth quarter of this year and companies will work together in a bid to accelerate Calibre’s future product developments. 

Plans are underway to roll out a range of premium video processing, routing and control products with the first join products debuting in February 2014 at ISE in Amsterdam.

Kramer Electronics will dedicate resources to the support and marketing of Calibre products throughout its worldwide network of more than 20 regional offices.

Tim Brooksbank, chairman at Calibre, will head up this effort within Kramer as well as maintaining his Calibre role.

“Having just passed our 25-year anniversary at Calibre, this co-operation with Kramer marks an exciting start to our next quarter century. We will continue independently with our OEM and own-label business activities, but with Calibre-branded products being progressively merged into the Kramer range. 

“This opens up access to a far wider market for our products and helps Kramer strengthen its presence in its premium markets. I’m really enthusiastic about being able to work so closely with the people at Kramer. Our planned future product developments are particularly interesting and will greatly expand both companies’ capabilities and market.”
