CARLISLE, PA/HACKETTSTOWN, NJ, - The Vitec Group, worldwide provider of a wide range of equipment and services to the broadcasting, entertainment and photographic industries, announced the company has changed its RF Extreme, LLC business unit name to Integrated Microwave Technologies, LLC.
Effective immediately, Integrated Microwave Technologies will now be the name of the business unit within the Vitec Group's Videocom Division that comprises leading digital and analog video microwave brands, Nucomm, RF Central and Microwave Service Company (MSC).
"As our business continues to grow and as we further expand into new markets, we felt we could better define who we are by renaming our business unit," says Integrated Microwave Technologies President Stephen Shpock. "While our name has changed, our commitment to providing our customers with the best-in-class service remains the same. We will continue to provide high-quality solutions to professional users and distinctive global markets including broadcast, sports/entertainment and military, aerospace and government ("MAG")."
Shpock goes on to say, "This change will not impact our brand visibility in the media and broadcast sector where we primarily trade and market under the Nucomm, RF Central and MSC brands. As we cease doing business under the RF Extreme name, Integrated Microwave Technologies will become a leading brand in the MAG sectors."
