San Francisco, CA (September 28, 2011)—Wohler Technologies will serve as a reseller and distributor for SoundField, a U.K.-based manufacturer of microphones and upmix solutions for recording and processing in stereophonic and multichannel surround formats.
Wohler will offer SoundField's full product line, including the DSF-2 broadcast microphone system and the UPM-1 stereo-to-5.1 converter, in all North, Central, and South American countries with the exception of Colombia.
Carl Dempsey, chief executive officer at Wohler, said, "SoundField is well-established in the U.K. and across European markets, and the company's UPM-1 upmix product and plug-ins, as well as its surround mics, are widely recognized as current state-of-the-art and best-practice products for major broadcasters in the region. We're excited to have this opportunity to leverage our well-established distribution channels in making these exceptional products more readily available to our customers throughout the Americas."
"Wohler's strength and dominant market position within North America, as well as Central and South America, will be key to expanding our distribution and market presence in some of the largest broadcast markets in the world," commented Ken Giles, owner and managing director of SoundField. "This partnership has enormous potential for both companies' customers, and we're confident that it will enable more broadcasters worldwide to achieve the unique quality delivered by SoundField products and technologies."
