Sydney, Australia, 21/11/2017: Global leader in IPTV, digital signage and video streaming, Tripleplay has partnered with leading AV distributor and solutions specialist, avt to become its sales, support and technical representation in the Australia and New Zealand region.

With teams based throughout Australia and New Zealand, avt has a national and regional footprint that makes it a perfect fit to offer local pre-sales, training, service and support to Tripleplay’s established end user clients and integration partners. avt’s unparalleled experience and value-added knowledge in education, government and enterprise markets provide a natural fit to Tripleplay’s product offering.

Shanelle Stokes, General Manager for Tripleplay ANZ, will be working closely with avt, “avt has a fantastic reputation in the region having represented some incredible brands and technologies. Their technical and support offering is second to none and their expertise is something we feel our partners and clients will appreciate and get huge benefit from.

“I look forward to working alongside avt with the rest of my team in Sydney and look forward to building a long and fruitful partnership”, Stokes said.

Tripleplay CEO, Steve Rickless added, “avt’s business is incredibly well aligned with our own, it works with our partners, delivers solutions in the industries we do, and through them we can achieve the national coverage that the regional market needs and deserves. We’re incredibly excited by the opportunities this partnership presents and look forward to building our brand together in this key market.”

For the past 30 years avt has served the market as a trusted advisor in the provision of technology solutions for enterprise meeting rooms, corporate collaboration spaces, teaching hospital simulation environments, presentation spaces and more. The appointment as Tripleplay distributor for the ANZ region now enables avt to extend its value to its customers.

CEO of avt Graham Evans said, “Tripleplay is a complimentary technology to our current solutions and, based on customer demand, is a logical addition to our rapidly growing and evolving product suite.

“From our earliest engagement with Steve and his team, we felt the fit was right. Tripleplay, the technology solution, aligns with our strategy of a scalable, software-centric, consumption model. Tripleplay the business, fits with our agile, innovative and customer-centric ways of working”, Evans said.

“We see huge opportunities for Tripleplay and see it as a market leader in the IPTV space”, he added.

avt is excited to be onboarding new manufacturing partners and believes its distribution of Tripleplay offers new opportunities to its mutual integration partners through providing solutions to sectors the company has not traditionally worked in, such as aged care, hotels, prisons and mining camps.

The company is also looking forward to offering new solutions to its end user clients. avt has been serving the university sector since the company’s inception, but predominantly in teaching and meeting spaces. With Tripleplay, avt can now extend its value to its tertiary customers for their student accommodation, signage and lecture capture requirements. Equally, avt has served the corporate and government sectors, in the boardroom, collaboration and meeting spaces and now has a compelling solution to deliver an end-to-end IPTV and signage solution across the enterprise.

avt and Tripleplay are both confident that as distributor, avt will bring the same sustained value and support to the new markets and platforms that it will be serving as it has done for many years with Harman’s AMX product range.
