Los Angeles (March 11, 2005)–Swiss-based Merging Technologies, which supplies the Pyramix DAW and VCube HD video recorder systems, has appointed Kaspar Hugentobler to head a new Los Angeles operation to support the rapidly growing Pyramix and VCube user-base in the United States.
Statistics show that the number of Pyramix users in the U.S. has grown greater than 100 percent year on year since 2001, and there is no sign of the demand lessening. The West Coast in particular is fast becoming a hotbed of Pyramix users.
“Kaspar has many years experience working professionally with Pyramix in all areas of the audio industry and knows the system inside out,” explained Ken Barnsley, Merging’s sales and marketing manager. “His primary role is to be on hand for our customers in the L.A. region for support and training and as the principal demonstrator for new customers of Pyramix and the new VCube systems. He will be working closely with Audio Intervisual Design, our principal dealer in L.A.”
Merging’s president and founder, Claude Cellier, added, “Merging Technologies is totally committed to the U.S. market, and it is clear that a localized support operation is a key requirement for our customers.”
