US/EUROPE: Wireless audio products manufacturer Revolabs revealed a significant extension to its distribution network at the Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) exhibition recently. The US-based company has confirmed deals with six video and audio conferencing solution distributors to make the entire Revolabs wireless microphone product line available across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India, writes David Davies.

The new partners are Videnda Distribution (Ireland), Standard Audio Systems AB (Sweden), COMIRIS Technologies (France), COMIRIS International (Middle East, northern and eastern Africa), Intmark Distribution (Middle East and India), and Wild and Marr Pty (South Africa).

"This is a very significant development for Revolabs as we continue to increase our distribution reach," says Martin Offwood, the company's managing director of EMEAI sales.

The news emerged simultaneously with the company's showcasing of its latest product development, the xTag personal wireless microphone. Said to bring "unmatched audio performance to the individual workspace", the microphone features a desktop system that connects to any computer (PC including Vista or Mac OS) via USB and does not require a software install. xTag is described as an ideal solution for demanding personal audio applications such as web-conferencing, podcasting, Voicelift, Skype and Google Talk, and Speech Dictation.

"There has been a lot of interest in the new product, and a phenomenal level of interest in our technology," notes Offwood, who is pictured here with Revolabs' president/CEO, Martin Bodley.

Revolabs' appearance at ISE followed hot on the heels of an announcement in mid-January that it had registered record results for 2007. Revenue grew by 350% compared to the previous year, while the company also recorded nine consecutive months of increasing revenue.
