Hoofddorp, the Netherlands, January 16, 2018 – Vivitek has announced that it has appointed Stampede to distribute its NovoConnect family in the UK. Stampede’s appointment is effective immediately and it joins Vivitek’s other NovoConnect distributor partners in the UK.
“NovoConnect represents another giant leap forward in cable-free presentation and collaboration technology,” said Kevin Kelly, Stampede President and COO. “NovoConnect joins our rapidly growing and expanding portfolio of innovative presentation and collaboration solutions that is providing our reseller network with more options than ever before to choose from. The addition of Vivitek’s all-new NovoConnect product line will empower our resellers to meet the growing market demand of their customers for ground-breaking collaboration tools.”
An ideal complement to the already wide range of AV products and services distributed by Stampede, the NovoConnect family plays a central role in helping to improve all meeting, training and education environments. Stampede anticipates that NovoConnect family will both attract considerable customer demand from those looking for collaboration solutions, while Vivitek’s NovoDS range will also enhance Stampede’s offering in the digital signage sector.
Holger Graeff, General Manager, Vivitek EMEA, said: “Stampede is an excellent complement to our existing NovoConnect distributor partners. In a short amount of time, the company has grown rapidly throughout Europe and has established itself as a major AV distributor in the region. Stampede is very pro-active in taking new products to different reseller channels. We’re confident it has the right skills and reseller relationships to make a big impact on further extending Vivitek’s footprint in the UK. We’re looking forward to building and developing a mutually beneficial relationship with Stampede.”
As part of its on-going strategy to raise awareness of the NovoConnect family, Stampede will exhibit and display the range at all of its Big Book of AV Tour events, and it will be demonstrated regularly at Stampede’s Reading, UK, showroom. Additionally, it will offer evaluation units for dealers to trial and will also host webinars to both showcase the technology and train dealers. They will also benefit from demo-to-quote and bid, installation and training support, excellent pricing as well as assistance with end-user marketing activities.
Vivitek’s NovoConnect family is a suite of wireless presentation products based on the principle of BYOD. Ideally suited for the education market, its innovative features include teacher control and preview and feedback features such as real-time polling. Vivitek’s NovoPRO is a superior, next-generation system for wireless presentation and collaboration. It takes business meetings, conferences and corporate presentations to a new level of collaboration and interaction. NovoEnterprise is aimed at SME and corporate environments and has been designed to provide guests with an ad-hoc wireless connection. Thanks to NovoEnterprise’s standalone operation and external antenna, it provides a robust wireless connection, and prevents guests from accessing the corporate network, thus ensuring that network security is maintained.
Another core component of the NovoConnect family is the LauncherPlus. It is a USB device that plugs directly into the laptop and, thanks to its embedded WiFi, it streams laptop content effortlessly to the big screen. The LauncherPlus is especially convenient for visiting guests, or when colleagues from other offices are on site.
