The longtime partners behind Point Source Audio have formed a new Petaluma, Calif.-based company that will “support their distributed lines that serve the broadcast industry.”
Right out of the gate, this newly conceived company will represent North American distribution of Digigram, AuviTran and “other brands to be announced.”
Yvonne Ho and James Lamb are hanging their shingle on Wider Pro LLC.
Point Source Audio will continue to handle all facets—manufacturing, distribution, sales, marketing as well as service—of its microphone and headset products for all markets including the broadcast sector.
However, they say, the timing is right for the transition of its current distributed brands from Point Source Audio to Wider Pro.
“I have worked with the teams at both Digigram and AuviTran for almost two decades, and with the pending announcements of new products from both companies, we will be equipped to move into the next phase of growth under the Wider Pro company,” Lamb says.
Ho and Lamb each stress that this change is intended to accelerate new products to market while maintaining hyper focus on customer service and support for all the brands.
France-based Digigram develops digital encoding and streaming links. The company manufactures sound cards, audio processing software and IP audio codecs that are used by broadcast professionals worldwide. Their IQOYA series of IP audio delivery devices are single rack units that can be ordered in a wide variety of configurations. The company also makes the Audioway Bridge line of products for facilitating the transfer of audio streams.
AuviTran, also in France, manufactures several innovative products for broadcast including the Audio ToolBox, a flexible and modular system that greatly simplifies IP networking when dealing with multiple protocols. Their AVDT-BOB is a compact DANTE breakout box with embedded digital signal processing.
