CasaTunes, a leader in streaming multi-room music solutions, announced Altawakol Audio Video Systems Corp., a newly established company located at Sharjah Airport International Free Zone Area in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), has signed on as the CasaTunes distributor for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Altawakol Audio Video Systems is part of a business group that has been in the audio video business for more than 40 years representing several well-respected brands in the industry.
“CasaTunes offers solutions for homes from as few as three wired rooms up to 24 wired rooms with built-in support for up to 10 additional wireless rooms,” said Steve Guerra, VP of business development of CasaTunes. “We integrate with most popular home automation systems, support any amplifier or AV receiver, and most popular third party switches. I like to call us the “Swiss Army knife” of whole house audio, offering the most comprehensive multi-room audio solution at the lowest cost per zone in the market today. Adding distribution in the UAE expands the reach of CasaTunes technology globally with other current distribution partners throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, China, Nigeria, India, Australia, and Mexico.”
Based on the Arabian Peninsula on the Persian Gulf, Altawakol Audio Video Systems is based in Sharjah, the UAE’s third largest city. There are over nine million people living in the UAE and over 381 million across the MENA region. This area is growing and attracting new businesses to the special economic zones subsidized by the UAE government.
“Altawakol Audio Video Systems was established to serve the installers and integrators in the MENA region with the best and established AV products and solutions from the world’s finest manufacturers and suppliers,” said Abdulnasser Guhl, managing director with Altawakol Audio Video Systems. “CasaTunes was among the first of our new product offerings because of its ability to work with both existing and new construction across wired and wireless technology, and has the best offerings for a variety of third-party controllers.”
