POLAR, established supplier of key industry brands to the installation, MI and professional audio markets, is very pleased to announce that it is to become a Commercial UK distributor for US-based AV distribution specialist, ZeeVee. ZeeVee is an industry-leading developer and manufacturer of AV over IP technologies. ZeeVee possesses unrivalled expertise in encoding and decoding technology, enabling the delivery of unsurpassed picture quality, reliability and ease of use across a host of applications.
Education, government, corporate, healthcare, broadcast, entertainment, retail and housing offer a virtually limitless sphere of application for ZeeVee solutions and its list of blue-chip clients attests to the high regard in which the company is held. POLAR will carry ZeeVee’s full AVoIP product range offering solutions for all network bandwidths, budgets and applications.
Continuing its growth in this area of the market, POLAR has been involved in the delivery of a number of notable AVoIP schemes, particularly in the higher education sector. London Metropolitan University’s recently refurbished giant ‘Superlab’ is just one example of many recent successful installations in which POLAR played a key role – the addition of ZeeVee to its brand portfolio is a resoundingly positive step according to Stuart Leader, Director of POLAR’s Integrated Solutions division:
“We’re firmly established as a distributor of intelligent audio solutions but our increasing involvement with video in recent years has seen the POLAR Integrated Solutions division assist with the delivery of many large scale, complex AVoIP projects. AVoIP encompasses a challenging combination of IT, network and AV management issues and our expert team engages with our customers, consultants and end-users to understand and design solutions that address the widest range of requirements.
To be partnering with an industry leading marque like ZeeVee, is a very exciting development which further strengthens our position. They have shown leadership and have a full product range that includes ZeeVee’s management platform, MaestroZ, which provides a unique value add, allowing for easy set-up, configuration and management of any AV over IP deployment. ZeeVee’s expertly developed, intuitive and robust technologies will provide us with the perfect toolbox for success in every area of a very fast growing market.”
Rob Muddiman, EMEA Sales Director for ZeeVee concured:
“POLAR have been early champions of AVoIP into the UK ProAV market with a real understanding of the technology and how to succeed. They are a great fit for ZeeVee, having the required support, knowledge and experience, plus culturally we feel that we are aligned. Both companies are incredibly passionate about AVoIP and the opportunities it provides!”
