In addition to the popularity of JBL Professional products in the cinema industry, another Harman brand – Crown amplifiers – has long been a mainstay of movie theatre installations.
The brands will be supported at Sound Technology by a team that includes sales manager Gareth Collyer.
“JBL and Crown are confident that with local sales support, service and spare parts availability provided by Sound Technology, and the combined proven performance of JBL/Crown cinema systems, the UK cinema business will be well-served,” commented Doug Daniel, vice president of international sales for JBL Professional. “Sound Technology has been [an] excellent partner in all aspects of the Harman professional business, and with the cinema sales experience of Gareth Collyer we expect the future cinema business in the UK to prosper.”
David Marshall, managing director of Sound Technology, commented: “We are very pleased to be able to expand our company into another vertical market and address the cinema industry with what are market-leading, ground-breaking products from JBL and Crown. We believe we can successfully serve the needs of this market, providing the necessary support and one-stop system solutions at a local level.”
In addition to the Harman Pro brands, Sound Technology – which has an increasingly high profile in both pro-audio and the MI market – also represents Solid State Logic, TL Audio, DigiTech, Kurzweil, Nord, Propellerhead and Randall Amplifiers, among others.
