Optocore signs Audio Solutions for push into Russia
Fibre network specialist Optocore has appointed Audio Solutions to distribute its products in Russia.

The Moscow-based company will provide Optocore solutions to its two core markets: sound reinforcement (theatres, concert halls, live events) and broadcast.

Audio Solutions is also working on what it describes as “a major project”, using Optocore’s sister company BroaMan solutions for delivering scalable customised systems for clients requiring SD/HD/3G video routing.

Igor Kovalev, manager of the Pro Audio Department at Audio Solutions, said: “[Optocore] represents a good price/performance ratio when compared with other brands, along with amazing flexibility / scalability and extremely high sound quality. It will allow us to implement modern digital optical network technology, with all its advantages, and to replace noisy long analogue runs in existing cultural buildings.”

The relationship between the two companies began around a year ago when Audio Solutions specified the brand for a concert hall installation; they later took delivery of a demo set prior to formalising the dealership agreement.

Audio Solutions was founded at the end of 2002 by a small group of pro-audio experts, jointly engaged in the design, installation and distribution of professional audio equipment. The company intends to appoint a dedicated Optocore product manager as it initially turns its attention to the theatre and concert hall sector.
