Sales Manager Ketil Morstøl sees the move as a logical step for the Norwegian business, which has grown to become one of the country's leading suppliers in broadcast, television, film, and commercial production. "We have been very focussed on radio broadcast for many years but have seen increasing demand for high end audio consoles in the TV broadcast market. We evaluated all of the brands, and took into account the experiences of our customers and our colleagues. SSL stood out clearly as the company with the best reputation, both when considering the products themselves and their reliability, as well as the level of service and support available."
Danmon's operator and production-focussed approach to business is a perfect match for SSL's own outlook: "We create systems that are easy for our customers to use," says Morstøl. "...So it's easy to make great programs really fast. Our new partnership with SSL underlines that philosophy."
Morstøl has been particularly impressed with System T - a new broadcast audio production environment based on an Audio-Over-IP networked audio infrastructure with multi-user networked control and the powerful Tempest processing engine. "It is very impressive," he says. "...A fantastic product at the beginning of its life. I think System T is the future of broadcast audio."
Jim Motley, Senior Vice President of International Sales at Solid State Logic, commented: "SSL is very excited to begin work with the team at Danmon Group Norway, who have a vast track record in broadcast installations in Norway and beyond. I believe that our shared vision of a networked future for broadcast facilities infrastructure means that together we can truly offer systems that deliver the right results with the right integration and scalability."
Danmon Group Norway AS is one of four companies within the Scandinavian Danmon Group. It supplies products, aftersales services, installation services, and support and training, as well as providing complete turnkey solutions for studios, ENG/DSNG vans, and OB vans.
