MINNETONKA, Minn. -- Jan. 29, 2013 -- Minnetonka Audio Software, Inc. (MASI) today announced a new partnership with Boxer Systems, an equipment supplier and systems integrator for the broadcast and postproduction industries. Boxer will be Minnetonka Audio's authorized partner in the United Kingdom, carrying its full array of enterprise-level digital audio processing products with a focus on its flagship AudioTools Server product line, the de facto standard for file-based loudness control in the European Union.
Boxer works with several manufacturers offering complementary products and has been providing file-based media solutions for more than 10 years. Minnetonka Audio will benefit from Boxer's two decades of experience supplying top-quality gear and value-added services to high-profile clients such as the BBC, BSkyB, Thomson Reuters, Channel 4, ITV, ITN, and Technicolor.
"We have some of the most demanding customers in the industry, with very high technical standards where throughput is paramount, so Minnetonka's server products will be very valuable to them," said Marc Risby, director of technology at Boxer Systems. "We've admired Minnetonka for some time, but very positive feedback and recommendations from other dealers really helped seal the deal. They have proved to be unrivaled in audio processing, and we've been very impressed with the technical knowledge of the team. They really know their stuff."
Minnetonka Audio chose Boxer because its staff understands the needs of its customers and markets and because the company has experience in many facets of audio production.
"Though Boxer Systems is new to our reseller network, the company's sterling reputation precedes them," said Markus Hintz, Minnetonka Audio's director of global sales and business development. "Our customers in the U.K. can call on a dealer with in-depth experience in asset ingest and management, and storage and IT infrastructure, in addition to audio and video technologies."
