MOUNT OLIVE, NJ, DECEMBER 19, 2012 – Integrated Microwave Technologies, LLC (IMT), a Business Unit within the Vitec Group’s Videocom Division, and a leader in advanced digital microwave systems serving the Broadcast, Sports & Entertainment and MAG (Military, Aerospace & Government) markets, announces the formation of a major non-exclusive distribution partnership with Integracion Digital Omega SAC (Omega Systems) throughout the country of Peru.
“We are very happy to announce this distribution agreement with Omega Systems, which is IMT’s first official venture into Peru and the Andean region,” says Integrated Microwave Technologies Divisional Chief Executive Stephen Shpock. “As a company focused on supplying new digital technologies to its customers, Omega Systems will be a vital asset in bringing IMT’s wireless gear to the Andean broadcast market.”
Under the agreement, IMT will make its full broadcast catalog available to Omega Systems. In addition, IMT will work closely with Omega to train its sales staff on the full catalog of equipment and help Omega pursue digital microwave opportunities in the region.
“We are thrilled to partner with IMT in order to bring its products to the Peruvian marketplace,” says Omega Systems’ General Manager Walter E. Gil. “By distributing IMT’s state-of-the-art equipment and technology, we are able to provide Peruvian broadcast clients with high-quality, extremely reliable digital microwave solutions. We have an aggressive plan of product expansion for our clients in Peru and we are confident with IMT’s proven professional commitment, support and superb technology, to make our plans happen.”
Omega Systems’ first purchase under the agreement consisted of two of IMT’s tried and true ChannelMaster 7 systems for Peruvian broadcaster, Frecuencia Latina, who was looking for a reliable portable microwave solution. ChannelMaster 7’s portable parabolic antennas with quick connect allow for a very fast deploy solution for the station.
“Frecuencia Latina is the first broadcaster in Peru to be using digital microwave and our hope is that their satisfaction with the equipment will lead other stations in Peru to make the switch from analog to digital,” adds Shpock. “The station's switch to digital transmission will allow them to use less bandwidth and have a more robust signal that can go greater distances.”
