Electrosonic SA recently announced being appointed as the sole distributor for RGBlink in the Southern Africa market.

RGBlink is well known in the industry for their dedication to develop and manufacture quality video processing products at any scale, making video accessible to a broad range of visual markets.

The company marks its 11th year as the leading manufacturer of vision mixers, switchers and scalers specifically designed for the live events industry. Their range also includes video wall processors and LED controllers for professional audiovisual applications.

Electrosonic’s Bruce Schwartz, Joel Davies and Riaan van der Westhuizen explain how they will incorporate the RGBlink product range to extend Electrosonic’s turnkey solution offering to the Live Events and Audio Visual industries in South Africa.

RGBlink has a wide range of products which are perfectly suited to the Live Events market that we serve. This allows us to extend our “complete solution” offering and to grow our business. RGBlink is a well-established company with a track record of providing quality products which are already well-known in South Africa, so product awareness is already present.” says Bruce Schwartz, Director at Electrosonic.

He goes on to add, “The RGBlink range of products gives us an edge to apply the products to the different vertical markets we currently serve; from video wall processors that complement our range of professional displays, to road-ready switchers and scalers, to our rental and staging client base. Many of our clients and prospective clients already have RGBlink products in their LED screen setups. These generally come with their screens, and now Electrosonic SA can provide local support and access to products off the shelf for these clients.”

Riaan Van Der Westhuizen, Pro Av Display product manager points out that RGBlink offers state-of-art video wall processing and fits perfectly with Electrosonic’s ProSpectre range of displays. “The video wall processors can be paired with Kramer’s AV over IP based units to provide a powerful solution for control room applications,” he says.

Video wall processor demands vary dependant on the number and type of inputs and outputs, as well as the bandwidth and processing power required. The RGBlink processors are modular with a variety of inputs and output cards available and offer processors to meet almost every need.

“In terms of value proposition, RGBlink has a better price point, compared to other competitor products. It also opens up in layers instead of pre-set layouts, which means switching between inputs and display windows is seamless and fast. It supports scheduling and remote wakeup and can be controlled via the XPOSE software which allows full control of the video wall,” van der Westhuizen concludes.

AV sales and Elite Screens technology specialist, Joel Davies adds “Electrosonic offers a comprehensive range of RGBlink products – from routing to video scaling as well as products to scale and convert images to drive LED displays. RGBlink offers fully integrated vision mixing, scaling and processing. Being a modular design, there is a wide range of signal inputs available to offer to the industry.”

RGBlink’s X-series and the T-One give the Live Events and staging industry absolute control of the professional video scaling. These products are specifically designed to operate in a live environment and are robust enough for the rental and staging industry.
