Comcon Acquires Distribution for Optocore and BroaMan in India

Optocore and BroaMan appoint Comcon Technologies are new distributor for the Indian subcontinent

German fiber network specialists, Optocore and BroaMan, have announced the appointment of Comcon Technologies Ltd as their new distributor throughout the Indian subcontinent, with immediate effect.

The origins of Comcon date back 40 years, with the company today specialising in the design, supply, commissioning and support of solutions for audio and video applications across a vast range of markets.

Based in New Delhi, the operation also distributes test and measurement products and leading connectivity brands including Neutrik and Belden. "Their specialised fiber optic product range will complement the Optocore and BroaMan products extremely well, and at the same time our existing OEMs will benefit from the unique product offering that these brands bring," states Comcon director, Gaurav Aggarwal.

Comcon places heavy focus on the Broadcast and pro AV segments, in particular. "This is exactly where BroaMan and Optocore are targeted towards," Aggarwal observes. "We have a strong growth in the rental and tour sound segments of the pro AV business and have been a leading supplier in the Broadcast field for more than 35 years in India."

In forming the alliance with the German manufacturer, Comcon was looking very much to the future. "We pride ourselves in keeping up to date with technology trends," continued Aggarwal. "The move to fiber is already overdue in the pro AV segment in India and once initiated, it will be the fastest growth area in this industry," he predicts. "Broadcast is a step further but there is still a huge opportunity that has not been addressed."

Optocore has enjoyed high visibility in India over a number of years, thanks largely to advanced design deployments by Warren Dsouza of at many high profile events, such as the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi. But its presence has been restricted to such high end events only. Thus, a distribution and support partner was always needed.

Having familiarised itself with the respective product portfolios and their applications, Comcon now looks forward to showcasing the products at the upcoming PALM Expo in Mumbai. "Educating the market more generally about the benefits of Optocore technology, and addressing any fears towards fiber will become key focus areas," promises Mr. Aggarwal.

Meanwhile, the German sister brands are delighted that all parties share a common philosophy. RadhaMohan Rajani, Sales Manager, Optocore, shares, "We at Optocore always look for partners who are aligned with our ethos, and are well placed in the market. With fiber technology evolving and cementing itself across the globe, we look for partners like Comcon who are leading the growth and establishment of optic fiber solutions in the industry. Comcon has a long-standing reputation in the market, and its portfolio matches our philosophy and the solutions we provide. They are well placed to represent our brands and we are excited to be working with them in the Indian subcontinent."

"We now look forward to offering our clients a complete solution to convert, multiplex, transport and manage signals over a fiber optic network, by demonstrating the improved workflow and added flexibility that the Optocore and BroaMan solutions offer," concludes Aggarwal.
