Almo Professional A/V Signs Agreement with Three New Manufacturing Partners - September 23, 2014

Comprehensive Cable, TASCAM, and Tightrope Media Systems Join Almo's E4 AV Tour in Boston on Oct. 3 and Washington, D.C. on Oct. 17

Philadelphia, PA — Almo Professional A/V today announced the addition of three new partners, Comprehensive Cable (cable and connectivity products), TASCAM (playback and recording equipment), and Tightrope Media Systems (enterprise class digital signage solution). All three have joined the fall E4 AV Tour traveling networking and training show, which stops in Boston on October 3 and Washington, D.C. on October 17.

Sam Taylor, Executive Vice President and COO for Almo Pro A/V explained, “The addition of these three companies brings tremendous value to our partner base with hardware and software products that help complete an installation and integrate with other products in our line, be it for digital signage or broadcasting.” He continued, “The added benefit is that Almo offers specialized pre-sales, technical and ongoing support through the expertise of our Business Development Manager team. TASCAM will be supported by Rob Ziv while Brian Rhatigan will take the lead handling projects that incorporate Tightrope and Comprehensive Cable products.”

Comprehensive Cable’s entire line of cables and devices are accessible through Almo, with an emphasis on the Pro AV HDMI products. With features like ProGrip® to eliminate loose connections, SureLength® indicators for cable organization, and color identification to ensure the cables are properly plugged, connectivity project needs are taken care of for Almo partners.

TASCAM fills a hole in the market for playback and recording devices with a commercial feature set and professional quality. Almo now offers TASCAM’s rack mount BD/DVD/CD players and recorders with RS-232, as well as the TASCAM broadcast and portable recorders to address the needs of resellers that purchase broadcast cami9 eras.

Tightrope Media Systems provides its Carousel Digital Signage, an easy-to-use, easy-to-manage web-based digital signage system that scales from one display to thousands of channels, and is in use at thousands of corporations, educational institutions, municipalities and small businesses throughout the U.S. Carousel integrates with BrightSign media players, another Almo partner, to minimize the costs of deploying large-scale out-of-home networks. By combining the features of Carousel software with the performance of BrightSign’s XD230 Networked Interactive Player, Almo partners now have access to a highly sophisticated digital signage platform that can scale to the largest of deployments.
