Tightrope appoints Magna Systems for Australia and New Zealand
AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND: Tightrope Media Systems has appointed Magna Systems & Engineering as its new distributor in Australia and New Zealand. Magna will concentrate on Tightrope's broadcast products, including the Zeplay slow-motion instant-replay system and the Cablecast family of all-in-one video servers and broadcast automation software.
‘Zeplay is ideal for live events because a single unit can store up to 160 hours of HD footage – 40 hours per channel – all enclosed in a 4-RU chassis, making it perfect for flypacks and mobile production,’ said Barry Pegg, engineering manager for Magna Systems & Engineering. ‘All in all, it's a very powerful and clever unit.’
‘We are very pleased to have a strong distributor and integrator in the Australia/New Zealand region,’ enthused Jay Kirtley, vice president of sales and business development for Tightrope. ‘Magna Systems & Engineering has a fine reputation for sales and customer support, so it's the perfect company to introduce Tightrope solutions to customers in the region.’
