Kramer Electronics and Calibre UK are merging their product lines in a global joint sales, supply, development and business co-operation agreement, with Calibre models, such as its premium scalers, being incorporated into Kramer’s product lines. The companies will work together to accelerate Calibre’s future product developments and plan to roll out a comprehensive range of video processing, routing and control products.
Calibre chairman Tim Brooksbank will head up this effort within Kramer as well as maintaining his Calibre role: “Having just passed our 25-year anniversary at Calibre, this cooperation with Kramer marks an exciting start to our next quarter century. We will continue independently with our OEM and own-label business activities, but with Calibre-branded products being progressively merged into the Kramer range. This opens up access to a far wider market for our products and helps Kramer strengthen its presence in its premium markets.”
“This strategic co-operation with Calibre is of great benefit to both companies and to our customers alike,” added Dr Joseph Kramer, founder, president & chairman of Kramer Electronics and recent recipient of the 2013 Pioneer of AV Award. “Together we will move forwards developing a comprehensive range of powerful premium video processing and control products for the live events, rental, staging and fixed install markets with a focus on class-leading visual and functional performance. There are exciting times ahead.”
