Klipsch Signs New International Distributing Partner for Brand’s Cinema Speakers
INDIANAPOLIS (June 25, 2013) — Klipsch, a leading global speaker manufacturer, today announces the addition of distribution partner Datasat Digital Entertainment. Effective today, the company serves as an official distributor of the brand’s high-performance professional cinema speakers throughout Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
As a distributor, Datasat will act as an extension of the brand in developing new relationships with cinema operators to further enhance the Klipsch brand and its international position in the industry. Given the company’s focus, the distributor will be selling Klipsch’s renowned product line of cinema speakers.
"As we continue the expansion of our international footprint, we look forward to having such a reputable industry partner,” said Rob Standley, Director of Commercial Sales. “Partnering with Datasat will provide us access to an established network of integrators and exhibitors given the company’s technical savvy and immeasurable experience in the cinema market. We’re confident our speakers will align well with Datasat’s high-end cinema processors, as well as when marketed as a standalone solution to new and existing Datasat customers.”
“Since our first major blockbuster, Jurassic Park, 20 years ago, Datasat has been at the forefront in ultimate multichannel sound.” said Ciaran Doran, Datasat CEO. “With Klipsch as a partner in Europe, Middle East & Africa Datasat is well positioned to offer a range of solutions to exhibitors that has simply not been experienced in this region to date.”
