Visualization expert Barco and audio-visual (AV) expert Peripheral Vision have just
signed a distributor agreement. Under the partnership, Peripheral Vision will
provide South-African resellers and system integrators with easy access to Barco’s
extensive portfolio of Pro AV and control room solutions.

Headed by well-known industry figure Wynand Langenhoven, who is also prominent
in the industry as the Chairman of the South African Communications Industries
Association (SACIA), Peripheral Vision is renowned across South-Africa for its in-
house expertise in all aspects of AV applications. More than distributing products
from the world’s leading manufacturers, the company also provides resellers and
integrators with extensive training and support services, to ensure they can deliver
the most state-of-the-art solutions. “South Africa’s demand for AV solutions is
growing at a rapid pace. We offer our customers the highest-quality solutions to
cater to that demand,’ says Wynand Langenhoven. “Barco’s high-end offering
definitely meets our stringent criteria for quality, innovation, support, and training.’

Signing this new agreement, Peripheral Vision is now an official South African
distributor of a wide range of Barco products − from networked AV solutions, the
complete line-up of Barco projectors (except digital cinema projectors) and Image
Processing solutions through to the ClickShare collaboration product range. “This
partnership really offers many lucrative opportunities and growth possibilities for
both companies,’ Langenhoven adds.

The new agreement is a valuable addition to Barco’s global partner programme,
which it is constantly intensifying to strengthen its foothold in the control room and
corporate markets. “We are excited to be a supplier to Peripheral Vision,’ says Eric
Brouwers, Barco Vice President MEA. “Every South-African reseller or system
integrator we’ve talked to praises the company for its expertise and experience, as
well as the support and services it offers.’

He continues, “We see that the market is ready for professional AV solutions, which
increasingly converge with IT, yet many resellers or system integrators don’t have
the technical skills to deliver the complex solutions that clients are looking for
today. Peripheral Vision provides the ideal combination of products and services,
including training. In this way, we can assure our South-African clients the cutting-
edge solutions they’ve come to expect from Barco.’
