BroaMan Appoints Contact Distribution as Official Canadian Distributor

BroaMan, an industry leader in high bandwidth fibre networks for professional broadcast quality video, audio, and data has appointed Contact Distribution as its exclusive Canadian distributor.

Contact Distribution specializes in sales and support for a slew of brands in the professional AV industry, working with the country’s top consultants, designers and integrators

Contact was first introduced to BroaMan’s sister company Optocore in 2005. Since then both companies have enjoyed a successful working relationship and participated together on many large installation projects including Massey Hall, Roy Thomson Hall, Rogers Arena, and Place Bell. The companies also collaborated during the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, in both broadcast and installation capacities.

“When we started with Optocore, many in the industry hadn’t taken those first steps into digital networking,” says Bill Coons, director of Contact Distribution.

“We are now at a point where not only system designers and operators are more accepting of fibre solutions, but fibre is a sheer necessity due to increasing channel counts, numerous different mediums and formats, and the expanding production needs of events and shows to draw in and captivate audiences. BroaMan products are the next evolution of technology and people are ready to make that jump,” Coons states.

BroaMan Sales Distribution Manager, Dawid Somló, assisted with the transition. “Contact Distribution is a well-known and highly-respected company in Canada,” he says.

Somló continues, “They have distributed Optocore products successfully for many years, developing a vast knowledge base in the field of fibre optics. Due to the close cooperation it was entirely logical to also hand over the distribution of our video and data fibre solutions, represented by the BroaMan brand. The fact that it is in the hands of a team who can be trusted, will provide great benefit to customers from the broadcast, installation, sports, and other markets, which will be reinstated after COVID.”
