JB&A To Represent Osprey From Rio Grande To Arctic Circle


Just in time for Canada 150 and the Fourth of July in the U.S., there’s a new rep in the fifty nifty and the Great White North for Osprey Video. A newly forged agreement has made JB&A Distribution the official representative of Osprey’s complete product offering to systems integrators and value-added resellers in the U.S. and Canada.

The distribution agreement focuses primarily on the A/V, broadcast, and IP streaming markets.

“JB&A is one of the most well-respected and knowledgeable distributors in North America, known for its expertise in video workflows and for representing some of the biggest manufacturers in the media and entertainment industry,” said Scott Whitcomb, business development manager at Osprey Video. “This partnership shows that Osprey’s ever-expanding product portfolio is getting the attention of one of the best value-added distribution partners in the U.S. and Canada, further proof that we are releasing products in which many end users, systems integrators, and value-added resellers are extremely interested.”

California-based JB&A is a distributor whose staff of video and content experts works to provide the best available workflow solutions for the broadcast, IP/streaming, postproduction, and digital signage markets.

JB&A will distribute Osprey Video’s full line of capture cards and live-streaming and encoding products. The agreement gives Osprey Video inroads into JB&A’s large database of clients. Also, Osprey Video will work with JB&A’s engineering and sales teams to build full solutions bundles for mutual clients.

Nick Smith, Director of Technology¬†at JB&A, said “JB&A has a long-standing history with Osprey in the professional video market and has placed thousands of cards into the hands of happy customers over the years. This agreement allows us not only to offer the widest range of capture cards on the market along with a range of micro converters that gives our dealers an amazing tool set, but also to partner with Osprey on its new products and product roadmap. We’re especially excited about the introduction of the Talon encoders. Osprey has been powering live webcasts for years through its cards and software, but now, with the Talon encoders, we can give our clients a very robust and affordable hardware encoder that offers multiple inputs, codecs, and resolutions in a very small package.”
