HARMAN Professional Institutes Direct Distribution In India

BANGALORE, India — Underscoring its determination to support growth in the India market and serve its professional audio and systems integration communities more comprehensively, HARMAN Professional today announced the immediate implementation of a direct distribution model in India. The announcement follows an extensive investment by HARMAN Professional in India-based R&D, operations sales and support and — according to HARMAN Professional President, Blake Augsburger — reflects his determination to serve customers with the best products, the best programs and the most appropriate channel strategy for that market.

“Having invested so much time and resources into developing a strong product offering for the India market, we are determined that as many potential customers as possible get access to this winning lineup,” Augsburger said today. “Our distribution strategy is to act as the market dictates and, in doing so, to provide a broad array of professional customers with the best possible systems and support.”

HARMAN’s switch to direct distribution includes the opening of new regional sales offices to support audio professionals with application engineering and sales support; new service centers across the subcontinent to ensure optimal deployment and customer service; project design and application support to address increasing convergence system sophistication and comprehensive warehousing to ensure availability of the right products in the correct region at the appropriate time. The net gain to customers in the Indian professional audio community is that HARMAN will be easier to work with and there will be greater availability of product and better, more expansive support.

Leading HARMAN Professional operations for India is David McKinney, who was recently appointed Senior Director, India Operations for the Professional Division. McKinney, a 12-year veteran of HARMAN Professional with a demonstrated capacity to build and lead organizations in emerging markets, previously established HARMAN Professional’s Asia Regional Sales office in Kuala Lumpur where he achieved significant success at establishing the organization and growing the business.

HARMAN’s Studer Takes Broadcast Academy to Colorado Sound Recording Studios

WESTMINSTER, Colorado — On Friday, November 9, HARMAN’s Studer is hosting a Studer Broadcast Academy and open house recording session at Colorado Sound Recording Studios in Westminster, Colorado. From 9 am to 12 pm, Studer will host its Studer Broadcast Academy Vista Foundation course, while the recording session will take place from 1 pm to 4 pm, with 4 pm to 8 pm set aside for listening to the tracks.

The sessions will take place in the newly refurbished Soundcraft Studer truck, which features a range of Soundcraft Studer digital mixing consoles, JBL Professional LSR Series studio monitors and AKG microphones and headphones. With the redesign and refurbishment, the Soundcraft Studer truck can now demonstrate up to six mixing consoles at any one time.

The truck also includes a “mouse hole” that enables wires to be fed through the belly of the truck and patched into the I/O of any of the consoles on board and take feeds from those external sources. Using this mouse hole feature, a live band will be recorded in Colorado Studios and mixed in the truck.

The Vista Foundation introductory module provides a unique opportunity to work with Studer factory experts to learn the basic operating philosophy and signal flow of the Vista mixing system and provide an overview of the surface. It includes plenty of hands-on time with the consoles to enable students to get comfortable with the renowned Vistonics™ user-interface, the layout and operation. Attendees will also learn the role of each segment of the Vista system, from the point of entry at a mic pre, following the signal flow through to bringing that mic to a channel on the surface. This is a perfect module for those completely new to the Vista consoles and even audio, and also for those needing a basic refresher course.

“We are looking forward to hosting the Studer Broadcast Academy and recording session here at Colorado Sound,” said Kevin Clock, Owner of Colorado Sound. “We pride ourselves on providing artists with top-quality recording services using world-class technology, and working with the newly refurbished Soundcraft Studer truck will be a unique way to showcase our facilities and HARMAN equipment.”
