HDA in South Africa

This month Chris and James had a successful visit to South Africa for HDANYWHERE events in Johannesburg and Cape Town launching the new, more premium 2017 product range and uControl in partnership with Radionic Distributors. The two events saw over 50 dealers in attendance, where dealer reception to the new products was enthusiastic. Dealers particularly liked the improved hardware designs, greater signal distance and PoE. It was announced that uControl was already compatible with DStv (S.A.’s primary broadcaster) set-top-boxes and a live demo of the controller-less control system was met with great approval from the saffer crowd.

Chris Pinder said of the trip: “South Africa has a lot of great dealers working on some great HDA projects. It was really enjoyable learning about the nuances of CI business in Africa and meeting integrators who have embraced the HDA brand so enthusiastically. HDA alongside the Radionic family are very committed to supporting this market to the best of our ability.”

Bartho Erasmus of Elite Technologies in Pretoria said: “The Radionic and HDA partnership is really amazing, they assist you with ease no questions asked. I am really excited for the new range of extenders, matrixes and easy control system. It opens up another gap in market for the basic client. Finally a manufacturer that understands the South African market!”
Radionic’s Justin Fothergill commented: “We were extremely excited to launch the amazing new XTND and MHUB products from HDANYWHERE in South Africa. It was also an extraordinary privilege to have Chris Pinder, founder and James Trumper, Head of Sales of HDANYWHERE present to introduce the new products and affirm their commitment to meeting the unique (and challenging!) requirements of our market and listen to the needs and feedback of our dealers. This amazing level of attention to our partnership ensures our greatest chance of success in dominating the South African video distribution market!”
