Ingram Micro signs Apple-compatible AV specialist Elgato

13 Nov 12

Ingram Micro has today announced the signing of an exclusive distribution agreement with Elgato, an Apple-compatible AV specialist.

New Zealand’s largest distributor of technology products will work with the manufacturer of HD-recording and playback solutions for Mac and PC computers, as well as Apple and Android mobile devices.

“With the massive growth in video content, people are looking for solutions that make creating, distributing and consuming that content – particularly on their mobile devices - easier," says Kelly Eyerman, Ingram Micro’s Senior business manager, Apple Division.

"Elgato’s products let you consume HD video content where and how you want and combine the power that professionals are looking for with the ease-of-use that consumers need and demand.”

“The products are innovative, extremely intuitive and simple to use, and we’re thrilled to be adding Elgato to our rapidly expanding stable of best-of-breed Apple-compatible and mobile vendors."

From its EyeTV Mobile TV tuner– a small accessory which turns an iPad or iPhone into a Freeview TV - to wireless streaming video devices and HD video and game capture solutions, Elgato says their hardware and software products have received awards for their innovation and user-friendliness.

"Ingram Micro is the ideal partner to help us increase sales into New Zealand's retail and reseller channels," says Sylvia Schaller, Elgato's director, Sales Europe & APAC.

"With their experience and company history, we feel fortunate to have them representing Elgato's entertainment, storage, and gaming products."

Ingram Micro says the new distribution agreement takes effect immediately, with the company receiving stock of Elgato products in its warehouse this week.
