Sao Paulo, Brazil - November 2018… Stage Tec, the Berlin-based manufacturer of professional audio technology, is expanding its activities in Latin America and welcomes SDLive, a new distribution partner in Brazil. SDLive was founded in Sao Paulo in 2015 with the aim of providing professional audio installations to television and radio broadcasters as well as organizers of major live events. The new distributor will handle the entire Stage Tec product range in Latin America and provide technical support. Existing Brazilian customers such as SBT, Reda Bahia de Televisao and EPTV will now also be supported by SDLive.

Pierre Maquea from the SDLive team is an engineer and consultant responsible for supporting Stage Tec products. He studied at the Institute of Audio and Video (IAV), the Souza Lima Institute, and the School of Music and Technology (EM&T). Pierre Maquea has 10 years’ experience in the audio industry, especially in developing studio projects, planning high-end audio systems and, most recently, in integrating broadcast audio systems. "It is always interesting to see customers’ enthusiastic response when they get to know Stage Tec products," says Pierre Maquea. "Through the partnership with Stage Tec, we have a broad portfolio and are well prepared for the challenges of the Latin American market. We have the right product for every requirement".

The first project jointly implemented by Stage Tec and SDLive is an extensive installation at Sistema Brasileiro de Televisao (SBT) in Sao Paulo.
