True Colours Distribution, the technical division of Midwich, specializing in connectivity solutions for complex AV installations, has scooped two awards for Atlona – including Manufacturer of the Year –at this year’s Essential Install Magazine Awards. True Colours entered the US connectivity experts into the Awards, with a number of Atlona dealers supplying further endorsement for the brand and its products.
As well as Manufacturer of the Year, Atlona picked up the Award for Product Launch of the Year, for the AT-LinkCast AV Wireless HD Audio/Video System.
“The judging panel were impressed by the progress that the Atlona brand has made since beginning its distribution partnership with the Midwich group,” explains Essential Install editor Dan Sait. “Awareness and conﬁdence in the brand have certainly increased in recent times and the Atlona entries were also able to get over the wide range of support that is available across the company’s CI product range – making a compelling three-pronged argument that clearly caught the judges attention.”
“We’re delighted to have been instrumental in Atlona winning these awards,” comments Iain Campbell, Sales Director at True Colours Distribution Ltd. “The brand and its products are second to none in this sector, and interest in Atlona has been growing at pace all year throughout the UK, thanks in no small part to the hard work here at True Colours, but mainly as a result of consistently top quality products and support from Atlona.”
True Colours and the Midwich Group introduced Atlona to the UK in January 2011, and sales to date in 2012 are up by 307% year-on-year. Indeed, True Colours has introduced Atlona’s digital line-up including HD BaseT technologies to over 500 diﬀerent UK trade customers this year.
The AT-LinkCast is also winner of the Electronic House 2012 “Product of the Year” Award, CEDIA’s “Manufacures’ Excellence Award” and picked up CES 2012 Innovations Honours. It provides a quick and easy way for users to get content from up to ﬁve HD sources – including laptops, game consoles, Blu-ray players and much more – to displays, projectors or AV receivers, without the hassle and clutter of cables.
