Midwich, a specialist audio visual (“AV”) distributor to the trade market with operations across the UK and Ireland, Continental Europe and Asia-Pacific, is pleased to announce an exclusive distribution partnership with MSolutions, a leading supplier of mobile, handheld test devices for commercial and residential AV environments.
Midwich will exclusively offer MSolutions products, including its award-winning MS-TestPro 104BH portable HDBaseT device with HDMI cable tester module and optional DC Resistance module for in-depth analysis of the cables, to its broad network of installers and integrators across UK and Ireland.
The partnership comes at a time of significant expansion for MSolutions, as the company strengthens its presence and brand visibility throughout the EMEA region.
The MSolutions team has been active in HDBaseT development since the standard was introduced in 2010, and the company has emerged as an innovator of problem-solving products that simplify the adoption and installation of HDBaseT media networks. HDBaseT is the global standard for the transmission of ultra-high-definition video & audio, Ethernet, controls, USB and up to 100W of power over a single, long-distance cable.
MSolutions’ test devices are used by installers and integrators today in North America, EMEA and APAC.
Claire Coogan, Divisional Manager at Midwich, commented:
“We are excited to add this unique product offering from MSolutions to our technical product portfolio. Built by a team of industry experts, the revolutionary HDBaseT tester undoubtedly adds incredible value to UK integrators and AV installers working with HDBaseT, to provide guaranteed reliable performance and quality. The ability for us to take this to our partner base to provide infield testing, monitoring and troubleshooting in a portable handheld device, really provides an indispensable tool for AV professionals.”
Philip Bass, UK Country Manager commented:
“The UK is one of the most important regions in our global growth strategy, so it was crucial that we chose a professional and respected partner in Midwich to support our regional efforts.
Our fully featured, affordable and best-in-class HDBaseT tester simplifies how installers and integrators verify HDMI cable and signal integrity, troubleshoot HDBaseT network performance issues, solve problems throughout the AV infrastructure, and certify their work with speed and efficiency. Midwich can now offer its customers a thorough and affordable test solution alongside its broader vendor and product portfolio that is quickly becoming an essential part of the AV installer’s toolkit.”
