Out Board reporting record sales growth18 November 2013
Cambridge, UK-based entertainment technology developers Out Board is reporting record sales growth in their 2012/13 financial year. According to the company all product lines have seen significantly increased business, including the flagship TiMax SoundHub and Tracker audio showcontrol systems as well as Out Board-branded LV&DV Chain Hoist Controllers and PAT4/CAB5 automated PAT and Cable Test Processors (pictured). Director Dave Haydon commented: “Overall we’re up more than a third on last year. TiMax sales have been strong in Europe especially Germany, Austria and Switzerland where we have also had more rental jobs than in any previous summer.
Most recently, the TiMax Tracker and SoundHub were used for the 20th anniversary of The Castle Festival (Schlossfestspiele) for a performance of Johan Strauss’ Die Fledermaus (The Bat). “There has been a surge of sales in the USA and China and we’re just starting to break into Latin America," Haydon continued. "We’re also anticipating our new MADI64 and Dante64 Connectivity products will consolidate interest in TiMax and also help open new doors for us in the coming year. Our LV&DV chain-hoist control workhorse goes from to strength to strength, not least due to the solid commitment of UK Main Dealer AC Ents who have developed sales and support to premium clients such Actus, ELP, Panalux, Birmingham NEC, HSL etc. We have also seen international business increase in places like Dubai and Eastern Europe, plus a massive system package going to the Sochi Winter Olympics with Unusual Rigging to support ceremonies and broadcast infrastructure.” www.outboard.co.uk
