Stewart Filmscreen Corp. has named Audio Associates as its independent sales representation firm for the Mid-Atlantic territory. This includes Central and Western Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, District of Columbia, Delaware, and Maryland.
Audio Associates has decades of experience working in this market with some of the top brands in the industry, including Digital Projection, Analog Way, Atlona, Denon and Marantz Professional, Mackie, Tannoy, and others. Audio Associates’ knowledgeable, technically trained staff will help Stewart Filmscreen maximize sales, deploy strategic initiatives, and explore new opportunities for integrators, dealers, and technology consultants in the region.
“Audio Associates’ reputation is beyond reproach, and we know that this is the right group to advance our commercial sales in the Mid-Atlantic region,” said Stewart Filmscreen VP of sales and marketing, Peter Brown. “Audio Associates knows that by making its dealers and carried brands successful, it will in turn be successful—so the motivation is intrinsic. As we roll out even more commercial initiatives and high-performance screens, Audio Associates’ role will be crucial and we’re thrilled they’re on board.”
The company’s technical expertise, knowledge, and installation acumen will help Stewart Filmscreen dealers better serve their customers, promoting beautifully integrated Stewart solutions that also provide excellence in image quality. The firm will provide Stewart dealers with intense and ongoing training on all of the company’s commercial screens. This will include historical and operational information that tells the unique Stewart story, such as the company’s emphasis on world-class material science, manufacturing prowess, custom capabilities, and A-list clientele, including the filmmaking community at large with projects including the Academy Awards and numerous A-list celebrities, directors, and producers.
Audio Associates will also teach dealers how to create unparalleled image quality by specifying and optimizing high-performance screen materials and frames appropriate for the particular viewing environment and application. Whether it is a massive custom electric screen for world class preforming arts center or a “typical” two-piece projection setup for a corporate multi-purpose room, the Stewart solution is designed to optimize the viewing experience of each specific project itself.
“Having worked alongside Stewart Filmscreen on many marquis projects with Digital Projection and Analog Way over the years, our firm has always respected Stewart Filmscreen’s position in the AV and high-performance market,” said Joe Blacker of Audio Associates Inc. “Stewart Filmscreen is clearly the most respected name in the projection screen category and we are thrilled to finally be part of the family. They (Stewart Filmscreen) perfectly complement the mix of video and audio products we currently represent and enables Audio Associates to offer a world-class package to our dealers, consultants, and end-users.”
Audio Associates is uniquely suited to spread the Stewart Filmscreen philosophy, and will be integral in getting the Mid-Atlantic area mobilized on Stewart’s strategic sales initiatives and highly compelling value proposition in the coming months.
