RUSHWORKS & AV Group Technologies Agree New Distribution Deal

News Image
RUSHWORKS has announced the appointment of AV Group Technologies as its distributor in Australia and New Zealand.

The announcement was made by RUSHWORKS from their headquarters in Dallas, Texas, and by AV Group from Sydney, Australia. The agreement signifies the next phase of RUSHWORKS' global expansion, already having established a presence in the UK with Cache Media serving as the Company's distributor.  

AV Group Technologies will introduce RUSHWORKS' multi-award-winning PTX Universal PanTilt heads to its broad customer-base comprising television stations, multi-channel play out companies, outside broadcast companies, production houses, telcos, and educational groups operating in the Asia Pacific Region.

The PTX is unique in the industry, designed for integration into the universe of robotic lighting and video control. The addition of full DMX control is what elevates this versatile solution above any other pan/tilt head on the market. For the first time lighting directors and scene designers can include video cameras in their DMX universes, using DMX consoles to block shots using one or more cameras in their scene definitions.

Compatible with standalone cameras and camcorders by AJA, ARRI, Blackmagic, Canon, GoPro, JVC, Marshall, Panasonic, RED, Sony, or any other that supports LANC control, the PTX Model 1 – and it's recently announced ‘big brother' the Model 2 -  provide control of pan and tilt, zoom, focus, iris, and record start/stop, if the commands fall within the cameras' capabilities.

PTX has a unique fixture profile that can be loaded into the most popular lighting consoles and software for integrated lighting and video show design.

PTX debuted at NAB 2016 where its ingenuity was acknowledged with NewBay Media's NAB 2016 Best of Show Award, presented by Digital Video magazine, and it received BroadcastBeat's first place honors in Originality.

Adrian Chespy, Managing Director, said: "We pride ourselves in bringing our customers the most technologically advanced, innovative yet practical hardware solutions from around the globe. Our goal is to provide high quality, cost-effective products from the most trusted manufacturers, and RUSHWORKS' PTX Universal PanTilt heads certainly meet our criteria, and then some. We are so happy to introduce this truly revolutionary pan/tilt head to a market that will embrace it for its unique capabilities."

Rush Beesley, RUSHWORKS President added: "AV Group Technologies are well-recognized for providing quality products and have earned a reputation for extraordinary on-going support. We couldn't be more confident in their ability to present the PTX Universal Pan/Tilt head to customers as the unique solution that it is, and serve as our presence in this important region."
