Professional audio and lighting distributor Group One is extending its relationship with Puerto Rico-based media technology supply and service specialists AVL Group. The partnership will bring the full range of Calrec’s audio console and networking technologies, including AoIP solutions, to the United States island territory.
AVL Group has worked with Group One since 2016, providing DiGiCo equipment to customers across the live sound, broadcast and theatrical markets. It previously supplied Calrec Summa consoles to select customers and is now representing Calrec’s entire range, including Brio, the IP-native Type R consoles, its full-scale console range and AoIP networking solutions.
AVL Group works with all four major broadcasters in the territory: Telemundo, WAPA TV, Puerto Rico Public Broadcasting Corporation and Teleonce. “We also cater to smaller broadcasters, religious TV stations, other media outlets, and OB Trucks. Our primary customers are the main broadcasters, but Brio and Type R are also ideal for smaller companies with tight budgets. We are developing this territory, technology-wise, and working with leading global brand Calrec and its comprehensive range is massively beneficial to that process,” explained Alexander Rojas, VP of AVL Group.
President of Group One, Bryan Bradley, said, “Puerto Rico is an interesting place and is at an exciting point in its technological development. It’s fantastic to partner with a company with such enthusiasm and market experience. As AVL recognizes, Calrec’s range is vast and is designed to satisfy the needs of broadcast media companies of all shapes and sizes, with an eye always firmly on the future.”
