With the latest figures indicating that India has now surpassed China as the world’s fastest-growing large economy, the country’s diverse industrial and business communities have never been more dynamic. India’s professional AV installation sector is no exception, and now its proponents are set to have even greater access to high-quality DSP technology thanks to a new country-wide distribution agreement between Symetrix and Awan.
A highly respected systems integrator as well as long-serving AV distributor, Awan represents numerous high-end brands including Sennheiser, Televic, Apart Audio and Bose. The addition of Symetrix to its portfolio will now give customers throughout the AV space the opportunity to access a diverse range of robust DSP solutions.
“We see great potential for Symetrix products throughout India,” says Awan India director Prasad E.S. “In particular, I am impressed by the scalability and easy expansion of products such as the SymNet Radius AEC open architecture DSP. The fact that they offer support for the increasingly popular Dante media networking technology is another obvious benefit. Plus, the reliability of the Symetrix products over long periods of operation is well-documented and should never be underestimated!”
Corporate facilities, conference centres and performance venues are among the application types in which Awan expects to see strong long-term take-up of the Symetrix range. More imminently, Prasad and his team intend to showcase the brand’s capabilities at several major trade shows, including InfoComm India (1-3 September, Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai), and at a planned series of roadshow events.
“It is by getting out there and showing what audio products can do that you really make a connection with customers,” confirms Prasad. “So with Symetrix, we plan to meet with systems integrators and end-users to demonstrate the flexibility and ease-of-operation that these DSPs can bring to their projects. The plan is to do this both via roadshow events and 1-on-1-style seminars.”
The company will also be maintaining its acclaimed reputation for after-sales service and support. “Each deal does not end with the sale of the product,” he says. “For us, it is a long-term relationship that includes an extensive support function to ensure that users get the very most out of their products. We look forward to continuing this tradition with the full range of Symetrix DSPs.”
